Today, I decided to cook a different cuisine and that is Korean. So earlier today, I got Kimchi from a nearby Korean grocery store. Since making kimchi takes a lot of time with fermentation, I decided to buy a ready-made one. Maybe in the future, I’ll try to make kimchi on my own. For now, I used the ready-made kimchi in Kimchi Fried Rice.
Th fried rice is a dish on its own. If you like spicy food, you will like this fried rice. This must be one of the most flavorful fried rice I have eaten. If you like Kimchi, you should try out cooking this fried rice. Top it off with chopped leeks or with sunny-side up egg. It’s picture-perfect too!😃
Kimchi Fried Rice
- 2 stalks leeks chopped thinly
- 4 cloves garlic minced
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 cup kimchi
- 2 tbsp kimchi juice
- 2 tsp gochujang
- 1/2 tbsp soy sauce
- 2 cups leftover rice
- 1 tsp sesame oil
- 1 tsp sesame seeds
- pepper to taste
- 2 pieces sunny-side up eggs
In a wok, heat oil over medium heat.
Add half of leeks and garlic. Cook until you smell the aroma.
Add kimchi and kimchi juice and cook for another minute.
Add gochujang and soy sauce and mix all ingredients. Add a little water if kimchi sticks to the wok.
Add leftover rice and cook for a few minutes until rice is fully warm.
Add sesame oil, sesame seeds and the rest of the leeks.
Season with black pepper to taste.
Remove from pan and put in bowls.
Serve with either just leeks on top or with sunny-side up egg.
