Kimchi Fried Cauli Rice
I saw this recipe for Kimchi Fried Cauli Rice online a few days ago (Pinch of Yum), and once again, I knew I had to try it. It combines all my favorites things (in no particular order): rice (cauliflower rice to be exact), egg, sriracha sauce, kimchi, ginger and garlic. This beautiful little bowl (ok, ok..it’s not so little) of sunshine brings the heat and tons of flavor.
Let’s start with the most basic question you might have about this wonderfully tasty dish. What is kimchi?? Kimchi is a Korean side dish made up of salted and fermented vegetables. Typically Napa cabbage and radishes are used with a variety spices to create this magical food. Although there are lots of varieties of kimchi, it is typically quite spicy and most certainly, super tasty.
This recipe is quite simple to throw together for lunch or dinner. Disclaimer: I used store-bought kimchi. You can find this at your local grocery store or speciality food outlet. Additionally, you can either purchase frozen cauliflower rice or use your food processor and “rice” a head of cauliflower. With just a little fresh ginger, garlic and some peas and carrots, you have the makings of some truly yummy fried rice. Add the cauliflower rice, kimchi and eggs now you are really cooking. Top it with some green onions, sriracha and sesame seeds and dinner is served. Looking for other cauliflower rice recipes?
