Simple Vegetarian Kimchi Fried Rice

Is Vegetarian Food boring and limited? The answer is of course a big NO! In fact, lots of other cuisine, with some modifications, can be turned into vegetarian version easily. Simple Kimchi Fried Rice which usually calls for beef, but here I cook a meatless version and added king oyster mushroom just for fun! Light soy sauce can be used if desired. Sprinkle some toasted black sesame seeds and spring onion to garnish. With 2 to 3 Korean Side dishes added, it can be a simple meal by itself.

Preparation: 10 mins, Cooking time: 8 mins

Ingredients (serves 2)
° 200g rice, cooked
° 50g green capsicum, seeded and diced
° 75g king oyster mushroom, diced
° 150g vegetarian kimchi, chopped or diced
° 1 clove garlic or 1 slice ginger, finely chopped
° 1 tablespoon olive oil
° salt to taste
° 1 teaspoon sesame oil
° few fresh coriander leaves (optional), for garnish

Method
1. Heat the olive oil in a wok. Add the ginger or garlic and fry till fragrant.
2. Throw in the green capsicum, mushroom and stir-fry for 1-2 minutes.
3. Stir in the cooked rice, kimchi and season with salt. Fry for 2-3 minutes or until rice is heated through. Sprinkle with some water if it is too dry.
4. Add in the sesame oil and serve hot.

Tip
1. Rice for frying must be cooked at least 2 hours in advance or the night before.
