Indonesian Nasi Goreng Rice Mix by Baji's
By the way, that picture was taken on the day of Stephanie's shower, I don't wear the same clothes every day! I took a bunch of pictures with the food I knew I would shortly be trying, so you will be seeing that shirt a lot...I am a mommy and that usually means sweat pants and unkempt hair! Not blog worthy I promise!
Anyway...back to my review....
I have no idea where my mom found this rice mix but when she brought it home I was eager to try it, it sounded interesting. I made it for lunch a few days ago.
It was actually a little spicy but I don't handle spicy well. I gather that Indonesian food is meant to be spicy? I don't really know, I don't eat it very much. As you can see, I served it with a small fresh salad and chicken. Normally, I don't allow my rice to overpower my plate but since I was reviewing it I wanted to make sure that my mouth really understood what it was eating.
I did serve the same lunch to my son and he ate the rice. The spice factor was not an issue for him. We came to the same consensus:
This side makes the perfect addition to a meal. It can really liven up a chicken dinner or since the item is vegetarian, if enough vegetables and tofu are added it would be perfect on its own.
