Kimchi Fried Rice With Kale

My Kimchi Fried Rice with Kale experiment was a huge success! And not too spicy so the kids devoured it. I put a duck egg on mine. Whoa. Duck eggs are HUGE!

If you are looking for something a little different for dinner, but still easy, this simple twist on fried rice might do the trick. I serve a lot of stir fry and fried rice meals because they are easy and forgiving. Got lots of random veggies in your crisper? Make a stir fry or throw together a fried rice.

Kimchi Fried Rice

Kimchi fried rice might sound exotic but it’s really not.

Kimchi is fermented cabbage with A LOT of flavor. I found my kimchi at my local Earth Fare grocery store. The kale is from my garden. I cooked the rice in my slow cooker in the morning so I could throw this together quickly. I had one lonely slice of deli ham so I chopped that up, too. Waste not, want not.
