|Kimchi Fried Rice Recipe|
This dish is so easy and so delicious – it will quickly become a family favorite! Kimchi fried rice is a great way to use up leftover rice, and it is packed with flavor. The kimchi adds a nice spice to the dish, and the fried egg on top is the perfect finishing touch.
My companion Rashed turned me onto kimchi. Her Korean mother generally had this astounding, sharp cabbage topping primed and ready for serving close by their Korean suppers or only for eating. Being an admirer of matured food varieties (executioner garlic pickles perpetually!) it was an easy decision I'd turn into a devotee of kimchi as well. Kimchi broiled rice is one of my number one supper thoughts when there's no opportunity to cook.
While I love my ham broiled rice recipe, I keep this seared rice recipe vegan with fast broiled tofu and fried eggs giving the protein and mushrooms and soy sauce adding hearty umami. Extra white rice is critical to the outcome of any broiled rice so it doesn't bunch. And afterward, obviously, there's kimchi in this dish, where the aged cabbage adds body and the held kimchi juice gives the kimchi seared rice its delightful tang.

Heat 3 tablespoons of oil in a huge non-stick skillet over medium-high. When the oil is sparkling, add half of the tofu to the container in a solitary layer.
