What is Kimchi?

Kimchi is a traditional, Korean side dish of salted and fermented vegetables like cabbage, radish, onions and more. You can pick some up in the International section of your grocery store or in the section with Asian food products. Some varieties are spicier than others so if you’re not into hot flavors, start with a mild version and work your way up.

Try it in another recipe idea like a Kimchi Fried Rice recipe with a fried egg or add it to a similar microwave Rice and Fried Egg dish.

What Should I Know?

When preparing the rice for this dish, the sesame oil is important because it helps to give your dish that signature flavor we all love. The cream cheese works here as a glue that will help keep your rice nice and compact like sticky rice. The other ingredients can vary according to your taste. If you’re not a big fan of kimchi, simply omit it and substitute it with your favorite vegetables.

No sushi mat? Just roll the mixture tightly by hand or with a piece of plastic wrap or foil. Feel free to sub in plain Ready to Serve Jasmine Rice instead of the naturally-flavored variety used here, if that’s what you have on hand. Need a new dinner idea? Try our: cheesy chicken over rice.
