Obviously, I am on a fried rice kick right now. After the amazing Thai fried rice I made the other day, it’s all I can think about. Today when I was thinking about what to make for dinner, I realized I wanted fried rice. Again. I didn’t want the exact same meal, but I definitely wanted fried rice.
So… I took a look at what I already had in the house and bingo! It came to me. I had rice, homemade kimchi, and eggs, so kimchi fried rice it was! It was delicious, and worth the 20 minutes of effort it took to make. Wink, wink. This meal is ridiculously easy to make and on the extreme end of economical. It’s a definite keeper.
2 c. cooked jasmine rice
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 c. kimchi
¼ c. kimchi brine
2 tsp. gochujang
2-3 tsp. soy sauce
2 tsp. toasted sesame oil
2 green onions, sliced
Cook rice according to package directions. Place in a bowl and mix with sesame oil thoroughly.
Mix together kimchi brine, gochujang and soy sauce in a bowl.
Heat olive oil over medium high heat in a large skillet. Cook kimchi for a few minutes until it is fragrant.Add rice and mix. Then, add the sauce and make sure you mix together all of the ingredients.
Place the fried rice in two bowls. Top with a sunny side up egg and green onions.
