Kimchi Fried Cauli-Rice
|

Kimchi is a Korean cuisine staple made from fermented vegetables like napa cabbage and radish. This probiotic powerhouse is the star of our Kimchi Fried Cauli-Rice. Not only does Kimchi add a slightly spicy-sour flavor to this dish, but it also adds important nutrients, like vitamins A & C and fiber. Although we've created this dish with cauli-rice (or crumbled cauliflower) for an added veggie boost, feel free to substitute cooked rice instead.

 

Kimchi Fried Cauli-Rice

Ingredients:

  • 2 Tbsp. vegetable (or other cooking) oil
  • ½ small onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup kimchi, chopped (found in our produce and natural departments)
  • 1 cup leftover cooked ground pork (or other cooked meat), optional
  • 2 cups cauliflower crumbles (found in our fresh cut department)
  • 2 Tbsp. reduced sodium soy sauce (tamari or coconut aminos for gluten free)
  • 3 large eggs, whisked

 

Optional toppings:

  • 2 tsp. toasted sesame oil
  • 4 fried eggs
  • Green onions, sliced on the diagonal
  • Sesame seeds

 

Directions:

  1. Heat oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Once hot, add onion and garlic; cook, stirring occasionally, until onions start to become translucent.
  2. Add kimchi to pan. Cook, without stirring, for 3-5 minutes or until kimchi just starts to brown.
  3. Stir in optional ground pork, cauliflower crumbles and soy sauce. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 3-5 minutes or until cauliflower is tender and warm, but not mushy.
  4. Push cauli-rice mixture to the edges of the large pan to create a well. Place whisked eggs into the center of the well and cook for 2-3 minutes before scrambling and stirring into mixture. Remove from heat.
  5. Stir in optional toasted sesame oil and top with optional fried eggs, green onions and sesame seeds. Serve warm.
