Kimchi Baked Rice

asian dinner easy egg gluten free vegetarian Dec 07, 2020

This dish is on weekly rotation in my house at the moment, it's THAT good.

Full of flavour, very easy to assemble, filling and so satisfying!

If you're a fan of Kimchi then you need to make this dish.

Serves: 6
Time: 1 hour, 20 minutes


2 cups cooked white rice

1 cup cooked black, red or wild rice

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

2 tbs tamari or soy sauce

1 cup kimchi

1 small zucchini, thinly sliced

1 carrot, thinly sliced 

2 spring onions, finely chopped

1 bunch bok choy, washed and cut

1 big handful of bean shoots

1 tbs toasted sesame seeds

sesame oil to drizzle

fried shallots to garnish

1/2 tsp ground white pepper

6 eggs


Preheat oven to 200C.

In a large oven dish put your cooked white rice and cooked black rice (or whatever you choose to use) Add in the olive oil and tamari and white pepper and stir to coat rice.

Add in carrot, zucchini and kimchi. Stir again to combine.

Put dish in the oven and bake at 200C for about 20 minutes, you want the rice to start going crunchy around the edges.

Take the dish from the oven and stir through the bok choy, crack your eggs carefully on top. Try not to break the yolks.

Put the dish back in the oven for about 7-8 minutes, just enough time to cook the eggs.

You can open the oven and give the tray a jiggle, if the whites are cooked you're ready to serve!

Once the eggs are cooked to your liking, remove from the oven and serve into bowls, garnish with fried shallots, toasted sesame seeds, a good drizzle of sesame oil and bean shoots.



 I pre-cook and freeze bags of white and black rice so I can just grab them out and defrost in a water bath, rather than have to cook rice for a meal like this. Also rice that has been cooked and cooled is higher in resistant starch which is great for our guts.

Add any other toppings you like to this, change it up and get creative. Toasted crushed peanuts, pepitas, you get the idea.....

If you're not going to eat the whole serving you might want to only cook the amount of eggs you're going to eat, so if this meal will last you 2 nights don't put all the eggs in as they will be well overcooked by the time you reheat it the next night.

You can play around with veggies here too, you might like to add snow peas, another leafy green, maybe swap out zucchini for mushrooms or brussel sprouts. Enjoy!
