Kimchi Fried Rice Recipe



My husband is a huge fan of kimchi. He can eat a whole bowl of it on its own. A few years back, my husband ordered kimchi fried rice at a Taiwanese diner. So technically, the kimchi fried rice he had is not very authentic. Nonetheless, it was still tasty.

Fried rice is easy to make, delicious and a great way to use up leftover rice with ingredients you would generally have on hand: eggs and mixed vegetables. Traditional kimchi fried rice has gochujang, which is a spicy red pepper paste. I omitted this from my fried rice as I did not have any on hand.

When I told my husband that I am making fried rice for dinner, he suggested that we make kimchi fried rice. I happily obliged since I was craving kimchi anyhow.

Ingredients
6 eggs
3 cups of kimchi, roughly chopped
4 to 5 cups of day old rice (long grain, short grain or brown)
4 cups mixed vegetables
1/3 cup kimchi juice
Vegetable oil (such as canola)

Directions
1. In a large nonstick skillet, over medium heat, add canola oil. Pour beaten eggs and scramble using a spatula. Cook the eggs until it is still slightly runny. Put aside into a bowl.


Scramble the eggs so it is slightly runny

2. In the same skillet, add a tablespoon of oil and stirfry the kimchi until it is fragrant. Set it aside in a bowl.


Cook the kimchi until it is fragrant and you can smell the spices.
