Kimchi Fried Rice

Definitely one of the best kinds of fried rice out there. Kimchi gives fried rice such a strong flavour. A little spicy but it gives the rice just enough moisture as well. So next time you have some older kimchi that you don’t know how to use it up, I highly recommend this recipe.
