Ingredients

For the Kimchi Fried Rice

To Serve

Instructions

  1. Heat the oil in a large wok or non-stick frying pan over high heat.
  2. Add the kimchi and fry until the kimchi is slighty charred. If your kimchi has a lot of liquid, you might want to squeeze the kimchi to remove the liquid (but reserve the liquid to add back to the dish later), but I find this to be a messy task, so I skip it completely.
  3. Add the white part of the spring onions (scallions) – reserve the green part for garnish later.
  4. Add the rice, gochujang and soy sauce.
  5. Give everything a good mix until well-combined.
  6. Taste for seasoning. Add more gochujang if you want things more spicy, or more soy sauceĀ (or a pinch of salt) for more saltiness.
  7. Add the edamame beans. If they are frozen, stir everything together for a few minutes until the edamame beans are warmed through.
  8. Serve with the green spring onions (scallions) to garnish, together with a fried egg for each person.

Kitchen Notes

ADD TOFU
* I often like to add firm tofu pieces, cut into 2 cm (1 inch) pieces, which I will crisp up at the beginning of cooking by lightly frying in some oil in the wok.
* This Kimchi Fried Rice is also delicious with silken tofu mixed into the rice. The silken tofu will break up in the dish, and you may not really taste it, but it is a great way of adding protein.

ADD BACON
For a nice savoury hit, fry some chopped bacon in some oil at the beginning, and before adding the kimchi.

ADD CHICKEN
You can also fry some diced chicken breast in some oil at the beginning, before adding the kimchi.

FRIED EGG
How you cook the fried egg is up to you, but what is important is that the yolk remains runny. I like to cook my fried eggs the Asian way, i.e. with lots of oil and on high heat, so that the bottom of the egg and the edges become crispy.
