How To Make Vegan Shallot And Vegetable Nasi Goreng:

Serves: 2

Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 25 minutes

You’ll Need:
  • 6 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 6 shallots, finely sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 3 shallots, sliced
  • 2 carrots, cut into matchsticks
  • 3cm fresh ginger, grated
  • 250g spring greens, finely shredded
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp tomato ketchup
  • juice 1/2 lime, or more to taste
  • 1-2 tsp chilli sauce, to taste, plus extra to serve
  • 250g cooked basmati rice

To Serve:
  • 50g peanuts, roughly chopped

What To Do:
  1. Heat the vegetable oil in a wok over a medium high heat and add the shallots. 
  2. Fry for a good 15 minutes, stirring frequently, until they are deep golden brown, turning the heat down a little if they start to catch at the edges. 
  3. Scoop from the oil with a slotted spoon and drain on a plate lined with a few sheets of kitchen paper. They will crisp up as they cool.
  4. Drain all but a tablespoon of oil from the wok.
  5. Set the wok back over the heat and add the garlic, stir frying for a minute until lightly golden. 
  6. Add the shallots, carrots and ginger and fry for a further 3 minutes until the carrots are just starting to soften. 
  7. Add the spring greens and keep frying for another 3 minutes.
  8. Stir through the soy sauce, ketchup, lime juice and chilli sauce, stirring well to mix through.
  9. Tip in the rice, season to taste with a little salt and pepper and stir fry for a final 3 minutes until everything is piping hot.
  10. To serve, spoon the nasi goreng into warmed bowls. Top each with a the peanuts and crispy shallots. Serve immediately with extra chilli sauce.
