Leftover rice? Kimchi in the fridge? Lucky you! Roll kimchi fried rice into jumeok (fist) balls, fun! Who doesn’t love spherical foods? Feel free to use one kind of rice or a combination–our favorite is a mix of short-grain white rice and sweet rice.

How to Make It

1. Step
Add the bacon to a medium nonstick or cast iron pan. Cook over medium-high heat for about 2 minutes, until the fat from the bacon begins to render.
2. Step
Add the light scallions and garlic. Cook until the garlic is fragrant, about 1 minute, then add the kimchi and sauté for about 2 minutes, until lightly browned.
3. Step
Add the rice, kimchi juice, grapeseed oil, and fish sauce. Stir with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula to combine and break up the clumps of rice, then fold in the dark scallions, gim, and sesame seeds. Remove the pan from the heat and let cool for about 10 minutes.
4. Step
With wet or gloved hands, roll 2 tablespoons of the fried rice into a ball. Repeat with the remaining rice.
5. Step
Garnish with more gim and sesame seeds and serve with nori sheets, if desired.
6. Step
Enjoy!
