Vegetarian Nasi Rice Dish

"A common recipe in the Netherlands, the average person eats probably once a week - easy to throw together and great to serve to guests as it makes a lot and it's relatively cheap! The only thing I've done differently is used tofu in place of ham or bacon. You can also leave the tofu out completely - but you gotta serve it with sate sauce - that's what makes it great!"

Ready In:
1 large wok-ful




  • First, cook rice and set aside to cool. Best to make several hours ahead or a day before.
  • Next, beat one egg at a time and fry in half tablespoon melted butter each. Set aside to cool, then cut into strips.
  • Okay, now add the spiced tofu pieces to the wok and cook through. Set aside.
  • Next add the oil to the wok and the onion and garlic. Cook quickly till soft, then add the spices: ginger, coriander, and galangal. Then crumble in the chicken bouillon cube. Pour in the sweet soy sauce and mix well.
  • Then add a couple scoops of the cooled rice. Mix through. Add some of the Bami/Nasi vegetables and continue cooking quickly, stirring around and adding rice now and again until all the rice and vegetables have been added. Continue to stir about so as not to burn.
  • Finely, turn off heat and add back into the wok the spiced tofu pieces and the egg strips. Mix thoroughly. And season with celery salt.
  • Serve with kroepoek chips, sate sauce,sambal, relish, sweet and sour baby onions, and any other delectable thing you can think of. I've seen it served with diced tomatoes, cucumbers, lettuce or something crunchy like LaChoy crunchy noodles, fried onions, etc.

I love good food - who doesn't?! I've gone vegetarian in the last year so now when I try most recipes that contain meat - I usually use a meat substitute like TVP or tofu. Most of the recipes I'm trying these days are all very exciting for me because I'm trying to eat more healthy... with the exception of the desserts - I have sweet tooth :-) When i'm not cooking, i like to paint in my free time. See my link below to be directed to my art gallery home. Or I like to work on my blog "Modern Architecture & Design in the Netherlands." I also have two little girls that takes up a lot of my time - one is a picky eater so it's fun trying to find ways to get her to eat her veggies and everything else!
