Kimchi & Sweet potato Fried Rice

Kimchi & Sweet potato Fried Rice

Dear my friends! πŸ˜ŠπŸ™ Today I’d like to introduce you one of the easiest and tastiest recipes to make with kimchi! πŸ’› As a veggie in Korea, I used to almost give up to consume kimchi unless I am in vegan restaurants since most of kimchi contains fish sauce in. But couple of days ago I stopped by a supermarket and found vegan kimchi! OMG 😳 I couldn’t believe I could ever find vegan kimchi in just a normal supermarket πŸ₯³
I am super happy to see that vegan products are now more accessible and popular in many industries in South Korea.

So today with the vegan kimchi I bought, I am going to make Kimchi fried rice (goguma kimchi bokkeumbap in Korean). But this time I added sweet potato for a bit of sweetness and more diverse flavours. It’s super simple, you don’t need to prepare bunch of ingredients but so so so satisfying. Let’s get into it!

Ingredient 🌢

– β…“ onion diced
– Half cup kimchi
– 2 bowl cooked rice (I used brown rice 🍚)
– 1 sweet potato small diced
– 1 tbsp sesame oil
– 2 tbsp soy sauce
– Β½ tsp brown sugar
– Β½ tbsp gochujang (Korean chili paste)
– Roasted seaweed for garnish (optional)

How to Cook πŸ‘©πŸ½β€πŸ³

  • Cook rice by following it’s instruction.
  • Meanwhile, in an oiled pan add diced onion and stir until its colour changes to slightly translucent.
  • Add diced sweet potato into the pan and stir them with low heat
  • Cover the lid and stir them frequently to prevent from sticking to the pan.
  • Check the sweet potato with a fork or other pointy utensil if it’s cooked
  • When it’s ready add the kimchi, soy sauce, brown sugar, sesame oil and stir for 1-2 minutes
  • Add the cooked rice and gochujang and mix them well
  • Make the rice flat on the pan and turn the heat to high and leave for few minutes to make the bottom of fried rice to crispy
  • Place the rice to the plate and add a bit of roasted seaweed on top
  • Enjoy your sweet and spicy fried rice! πŸ˜‹πŸ™
