Kimchi Fried Forbidden Rice with Black Garlic Recipe

Kimchi Fried Forbidden Rice with Black Garlic - this one bowl meal is absolutely delicious! Spicy, sweet and full of flavor

This Kimchi Fried Forbidden Rice with Black Garlic is a one bowl meal packed with flavor.

Fermented Black Garlic

I love one bowl meals for their convenience, especially ones that include whole grains, vegetables and protein with a spicy sauce. One of my favorite one bowl meals is Kimchi rice, topped with a fried egg. It’s pure comfort in a bowl. The kimchi fried rice I’m sharing today is a bit more exotic than your usual kimchi rice because it includes two unusual ingredients – forbidden rice and fermented black garlic.

I’ve been wanting to try both of these ingredients for a while, so when I saw that this month’s Recipe Redux theme was “A New Ingredient for the New Year,”I knew it was time to figure out how best to showcase these two ingredients. Both of these ingredients made this kimchi fried rice more dramatic in appearance, and I think the fermented black garlic was a great addition, with its sweet and earthy flavors.

A fried egg on top is optional, but I highly recommend it. In my book, it’s what makes this dish complete. I’ve eaten this for breakfast, lunch and dinner and it always satisfies.

This recipe uses three fermented foods – kimchi, gochujang and black garlic, so it’s full of good-for-you, flavorful ingredients that support healthy digestion.
