Kimchi fried rice is a tangy, slightly spicy, comforting dish that’s super easy to make. It’s made with only 8 main ingredients and perfect for a lazy weeknight dinner or after a night out.


  • 2 cups cooked brown rice
  • 1/2 cup onion, diced
  • 3/4 cup kimchi, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 tablespoon ginger, minced
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce (tamari if gf)
  • 1 tablespoon kimchi juice (from jar)
  • 1/2 tablespoon neutral oil
  • 1/2 tablespoon toasted sesame oil


  • Black sesame seeds
  • Nori strips
  • Green onion


  1. Turn a large pan on medium heat and add neutral oil. Once hot, add chopped onions and cook for 2 minutes.
  2. Add garlic and ginger, cook for 30 seconds.
  3. Add kimchi and cook for 2 minutes. Then add the cooked rice, soy sauce, kimchi juice, and toasted sesame oil. Fry for 4-5 minutes, stirring every minute or so. If you’d like it slightly crispy at the bottom, cook on high for an extra minute or two without stirring.
  4. Serve immediately and add toppings as desired.


*add fresh kimchi on top for extra that crunch and more flavor

*refrigerate for up to 5 days
