After recently discovering my love for kimchi and using it in all sorts of recipes like the Kimchi Noodle Pancake , I realized that a variation of the kimchi sauce would be the perfect way to jazz up leftover rice. This recipe is ridiculously easy to make yet bursting with flavor and spice. To make this fried rice variation, there’s no need to stand over the stove, simply toss the rice with the sauce, Brussels sprouts, and a touch of egg, then spread out on a baking sheet and place in the oven. Once “oven fried” the kimchi rice is perfectly crisp around the edges and ready to enjoy! For more fried rice recipes, check out Kale Fried Rice and Unfried Fried Rice.
