Kimchi fried rice or Kimchi bokkeumbap (볶음밥) is a super simple and satisfying dish made with rice and kimchi. There is little to prep and takes less than half an hour to cook, perfect dish busy weekdays or lazy weekends. Since my co-worker and I did not want to eat out today we decided to cook in the office. We found some kimchi in the fridge and made our own version of the kimchi fried rice. Our option was pretty limited, but we managed to make it work!

Mmmm. I love kimchi, and this is the easiest recipe I've ever seen using it! Thanks for sharing, @cindystran :)
Living by myself, I tend to have tons of rice left in my rice cooker after I've made myself the smallest possible amount my rice cooker can yield. I've learned to put the rest of the rice in a tupperware and keep it in the refrigerator so I can make kimchi fried rice with it the very next day. It's one of my favorite fast/easy/cheap meals!
