    Chef Rob Rawlings Collard Kimchi Fried Rice

Ingredients

1 cup of rice and 2 cups of water

1 tablespoon sesame oil

1 teaspoon Tony’s Chachere’s Original Creole Seasoning (optional)

1 cup, chopped medium, yellow onion, washed

5 cups stemmed and washed collard greens, medium chiffonade (thinly sliced)

1 tablespoon minced garlic

1 cup chopped kimchi, seasoned

1/3 cup almonds, whole, roasted, salted, optional for garnish 

1 teaspoon lemon juice, or as needed

1 teaspoon soy sauce

1  teaspoon chopped fresh ginger

Drizzle with Sweet Thai Pepper Sauce, if desired 

Directions

  1. Bring water and rice to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender and the liquid has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes. (Best if rice is cooked the day before this will cut down the starchiness of the rice.)  
  2. Heat sesame oil in a large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir collard greens, chopped onion, garlic, and red pepper flakes in the hot oil until collard greens are wilted and tender, about 10 minutes.
  3. Add lemon juice, soy sauce, and ginger into collard green mixture; simmer until liquid evaporates, about 5 minutes. Garnish with chopped roasted almonds, in desired.
