Kimchi Fried Rice

Kimchi fried rice is a popular Korean dish that is made with leftover rice, kimchi, and a variety of other ingredients. It is a delicious and easy-to-make dish that is perfect for a quick and easy weeknight meal.

The key to making good kimchi fried rice is to use good quality kimchi. The kimchi should be sour and spicy, and it should have a good amount of juice.

The rice should also be cold, as this will help to prevent the fried rice from becoming mushy.

In addition to kimchi and rice, there are a variety of other ingredients that can be added to kimchi fried rice. I used firm-tofu for the added protein. Green peas, sweet corn, and zucchini would be a great addition too.

It’s also a fantastic way to use up leftover rice. Or if you’re bored with your same-old fried this, this is a great recipe to spice things up.

Let’s get started! 🙂

  • Set a large pan or wok over medium heat. Add oil.
  • Add the cubed tofu to the pan and stir-fry for 4-5 minutes until the tofu turns golden on all sides.
  • Push the tofu to one corner of the pan to make space for the garlic in the center.
  • Add the chopped garlic to the center of the pan and stir-sauté for 2-3 minutes until it becomes golden and aromatic.
  • Stir the tofu and garlic together for an additional minute, ensuring the garlic doesn't burn.
  • Now, add the chopped kimchi + gochujang + soy sauce to the pan. Stir-fry everything together for 3-4 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld.
  • Add the leftover rice to the pan and gently fold and mix everything together. Cook for 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally, to ensure the rice is heated through and well-coated with the kimchi and seasonings.
  • Add kimchi juice + toasted sesame oil + freshly chopped green onion. Continue to mix well and cook for an additional 1 minute to let the flavors incorporate.
  • Turn off the heat and transfer the fried rice to a serving bowl.
  • Garnish with toasted sesame seeds. Kimchi fried rice is ready. Enjoy!
