Many of you have purchased a Perfect Pickler and created your own easy Kimchi in just 4 days.  Below is a delicious Kimchi Fried Rice recipe that I think you are going to absolutely love!  With sesame oil, onions, brown rice, sea salt & Kimchi, it is so delicious!  For those of you who haven't discovered the Perfect Pickler yet, click here to see my post and how to make Kimchi.  I hope you will give it a try and let me know how it turns out.  This is a great recipe to use your kimchi and enjoy a traditional korean dish.  With two Korean brothers, I will definitely be making this for them.
 Kimchi Fried Rice – Kimchi Bokumbap)
Serves 4
1 - 2 TBS toasted sesame oil
1 ½ cups finely chopped onion
Pinch of coarse salt
2 cups kimchi (the older the better), coarsely chopped
¼ cup kimchi brine
4 cups day-old cooked rice at room temperature.
Garnish with sliced scallion or chives & sesame seeds

Directions:
Sauté the onion with salt in the oil for a few minutes to soften.  Add the kimchi and juice and cook another minute.  Add the rice and mix well, cook about 5 minutes.  Serve garnished with sliced scallions & sesame seeds.

Perfect Brown Rice
 
1 cup uncooked brown rice
1 tsp olive oil or coconut oil

Fix brown rice by cooking in olive oil or coconut oil until lightly browned.  Quickly pour 2 cups water all at once and put on lid.  Bring to a boil. Turn heat down and simmer for about 40 minutes until all water is absorbed.

    1. Jim - The cultured vegetables that I taught were spicy carrots, zucchini, kimchi, sauerkraut, tropical fruit and an Edame Slaw. All of which were super yummy!!
