Kimchi Absurd Rice FTW!

Featuring rice, or cauliflower rice, and arctic peas and carrots because easy, and beginning garlic and amber because YUM, and soy sauce, and chili paste, and a forkful of kimchi, and accomplished with a aqueous yolk waterfall. For me this is a new affectionate of abundance food.

I aboriginal had kimchi absurd rice back we were in Seoul a few years ago. I knew annihilation about anything. I was a babyish child. I didn’t accept any abstraction what kimchi was (likely referred to as “that red stuff”), but it didn’t matter. I knew I admired my kimchi absurd rice with a delicate absurd egg on top. Fast advanced a few years, to now, and I’m apparently best put in the class of knows-just-enough-to-be-dangerous and eats-a-lot-of-kimchi-fried-rice which is what brings me to this blog column today area I appearance you how I accomplish kimchi absurd rice.

How To Accomplish Our Kimchi Absurd Rice (1 MIN):

FYI On The Kimchi:

  • Kimchi is absolute and brewed banknote or added vegetables. Sometimes it’s spicy.
  • Kimchi is a basic of Korean aliment / cooking.
  • Kimchi can advance digestion. 👍🏼
  • I don’t accomplish my own kimchi (yet). I buy it. I absolutely like some brands of kimchi, and I absolutely accept a adamantine time with others. My admired cast is Spirit Brook Acreage kimchi which I buy at Accomplished Foods. The vegetable are cut a little smaller, agnate to the arrangement of sauerkraut, which helps me to adulation it a lot.

The capacity for kimchi absurd rice are absolutely simple and MY ALL TIME ADMIRED AFFAIR is that, at any accustomed time, I usually accept aggregate I charge to accomplish this.

Oil, rice or cauliflower rice, arctic peas and carrots, garlic / ginger, soy sauce, chili paste, eggs, and of course, a jar of kimchi.

If you’re bistro the kimchi absurd rice, like, appropriate now or in actual abutting adjacency to back you accomplish it, again put a absurd egg on top. A advantageously bendable egg with a barely-crispy basal and a aqueous yolk. Also: a dribble of sesame oil and a atom of chili adhesive or sriracha. YUM TO THE MAX. This is the way it was in Seoul.

However, if you’re activity meal-prep or make-ahead with this, I’d acclaim aloof abacus a few eggs into the rice and scrambling them in a little able-bodied in the centermost of the pan because, while absolutely beneath agitative than the yolk waterfall, accolade eggs will re-heat abundant bigger than aqueous absurd eggs. It’s added like Chinese absurd rice that way, but no problem. It tastes actual amazing and will reheat absolutely accurately for lunches all week.

Kimchi Absurd Rice FTW! Cauliflower rice, arctic peas and carrots, beginning garlic and ginger, soy sauce, chili paste, a forkful of kimchi, and accomplished with a aqueous yolk waterfall. A new affectionate of abundance food.


  • a classy of oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • a dosage of beginning ashamed ginger
  • 23 cups extra cooked rice or cauliflower rice
  • 2 cups frozen peas and carrots
  • 1 cup kimchi (more or beneath to taste)
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce (more to taste)
  • 3 baffled eggs
  • 12 tablespoons chili paste or sriracha for topping
  • sesame oil and/or sesame seeds for topping


  1. Aromatics: Calefaction the oil in a ample bucket over average aerial heat. Saute the garlic and amber until fragrant.
  2. Main Stuff: Add the rice, peas and carrots, kimchi, and soy sauce. Stir-fry for a few account or until aggregate is broiled and sizzling.
  3. Eggs: Accomplish a able-bodied in the centermost and add the eggs. Clutter the eggs in the centermost of the pan and again mix them throughout the rice.
  4. Finishing: Serve with chili paste, sesame oil, sesame seeds, blooming onions, whatevs kinda affair you like.


An alternating way to do the eggs would be to fry them alone and top anniversary confined with a absurd egg! This is preferable, in my opinion, but doesn’t consistently accumulate able-bodied for leftovers.

If you use cauliflower rice, add that aloof afore the eggs. Cauliflower rice absolutely alone needs 2-3 account in the pan admitting aggregate abroad apparently takes 5-8 minutes.

I commonly aloof use olive oil. A aloof tasting oil would work, too. Sesame oil has a low smoke point so it usually isn’t recommended as an oil for stir-fries (just for abacus acidity at the end).
