One of my comfort foods is Korean kimchi bokkeumbap (김치볶음밥, kimchi fried rice). Once you have all the ingredients, it’s easy to make.


  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 1 cup kimchi, chopped
  • 3 cups cooked rice
  • ¼ cup kimchi juice
  • ¼ cup water
  • 3 tablespoons gochujang (hot pepper paste)
  • 3 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1 green onion, chopped
  • 1 sheet of kim (dried seaweed), roasted and shredded
  • 1 tablespoon roasted sesame seeds


1. Heat up a pan. Add the vegetable oil and cook the chopped kimchi for 1 minute.

2. Add rice, kimchi juice, water, and gochujang. Stir together and cook for 7 minutes.

3. Add sesame oil and remove from heat.

4. Top with chopped green onion, roasted kim and sesame seeds. Ready to serve.

Note: I usually add an egg on top, cooked sunny-side up.
