Kimchi Fried Rice


My family and I visited San Francisco's Ferry Building market and enjoyed Namu's Kimchi Fried Rice topped with a fried egg as part of our breakfast. After buying Mother in Law's very fresh Kimchi here on Food52, I came up with this soon after to satisfy our craving. If you have a really strong, longer aged kimchi, you might want to start with half the amount and add to taste. - healthierkitchen
