Kimchi Stir-Fry is the right balance of spicy and richness without being a heavy dish. Remember, you can always substitute the protein based on your diet and preference. And you can try serving this dish with a soft boiled egg if desired. If you have left over rice from the previous day, try cooking that in with the rest of the stir-fried vegetables!

  2. Begin preparing your vegetables and protein.
  3. In a sautéing pan or large skillet, cook your protein first in a bit of sesame according to its needed cooking time and temperature. Once done, remove from pan and set aside for later.
  4. Heat 1 Tbs sesame oil on high heat, once hot add the onion, bell pepper, carrot, and zucchini. Cook for 5-7 minutes or until the onions are soft and translucent.
  5. Then, add the broccoli, mushrooms, kimchi liquid, and chopped kimchi.
