  1. Preheat oven to 200℃. Place a large baking tray in the oven to heat for 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, cook rice according to packet instructions. Cut broccoli head into small florets and finely chop the stem.
  3. Crack eggs into a large jug, being careful not to break the yolks. Carefully remove the tray from the oven and place on a flat surface. Lightly spray tray with olive oil spray. Carefully pour eggs onto tray and return to oven. Bake for 5 minutes or until the egg whites are set and the yolks are runny, or until cooked to your liking. Use a sharp knife to slice into individual eggs.
  4. In a large non-stick wok or deep frying pan, heat oil on medium-high heat. Stir-fry broccoli stems for 2 minutes or until starting to soften. Add broccoli florets and cabbage and stir-fry for 2 minutes or until starting to soften. Add garlic, chilli and spring onions and stir-fry for a further 1 minute. Stir through rice and kecap manis until combined and heated through.
  5. Divide nasi goreng into bowls or serving trays and top with eggs to serve.

Recipe tips

  • Serve with quartered cherry tomatoes and sliced cucumber on the side for added veggies.
  • Ensure you use flat baking trays when cooking the eggs so the yolks don’t gather down one end of the tray.
  • You could also lightly beat the eggs and cook in a frying pan like an omelette. Slice into small pieces and stir through the rice.
  • For larger serves, use 2-5 baking trays to cook the eggs.
  • Use minced garlic from a jar instead of fresh to save money and prep time.
  • Use frozen broccoli to save money and prep time.
  • Nasi goreng is best made using day-old cooked rice that has been refrigerated overnight. It dries it out, making it easier to stir-fry to evenly coat the grains with the sauce. You can even keep bags of cooked rice in the freezer!
  • The easiest way to cook rice is in the rice cooker or pressure cooker. For the pressure cooker method, add a ratio of 1:1 rice to water to the pressure cooker. Seal pressure cooker and cook for 3 minutes, then slowly release the pressure.
  • For larger serves, you will need to cook the ingredients in batches or across 2-4 large, deep frying pans or woks.
