Guy is part of the SurfAid event being held at The Bucket List in Bondi on March 11, 2015. SurfAid is a non-profit organisation started in 2000 by a concerned bunch of surfers who were struck by the needless suffering and preventable death in the Mentawai Islands.

This dish brings back memories of surfing through Indonesia, so we thought it was the perfect recipe to pay tribute to the great work that SurfAid do, and the unreal Bucket List event that were thrilled to be a part of. Yeew!

You can’t say that you’re surprised that we took a traditional dish and threw quinoa in it, can you? Putting a healthy slant on tasty dishes is one of our favourite ways to have fun in the kitchen. Our twist on a traditional Nasi Goreng uses coconut oil instead of polyunsaturated vegetable oils and high protein quinoa instead of white rice.
