Be sure to use old rice - fresh rice won’t crisp up properly.

The absolute best way to use leftover rice from last night’s Chinese take-out. Super simple, satisfying and full of probiotic goodness, this kimchi fried rice makes the perfect quick and easy breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

2. Add kimchi and sesame oil and cook another 2 minutes, stirring to combine ingredients.

3. Add half the scallions and the soy sauce and cook 30 more seconds.

4. Remove to a plate and top with fried egg and remaining scallions. Eat immediately.
