My healthy low carb take on a flavourful fried rice. Nasi Goreng simply means ‘fried rice’ but over at Keto Diet App we like to do things a little different so we’ve kept the carbs low, ditched all the preservatives and brought you a speedy weeknight dinner that’s packed full of flavour, nutrients and next to no washing up! Bonus!

This one’s vegetarian but feel free to add some cooked prawns, pulled chicken or pork if you prefer.

Was good but I dislike coconut oil so much. It kinda ruined it for me. I had to push past the coconut oil taste.

I think you may want to try ghee instead? Or even olive oil will work well in this recipe.
