Many of you know that I love Asian food and if you follow me on Instagram you'll get a taste of that every week. This recipe is Korean inspired with simple flavors of lime, kimchi, and onions. This fried rice is a healthier option for those Saturday nights you want to order take out and craving some Korean foods. Instead, you can have a blast with your partner as you cook this recipe and smell all the amazing aromas that come when you cook, onions, garlic, and ginger together. I'm happy to say this recipe has been one of my favorites since making it for my whole family. It’s made with Florida Crystals® Organic Brown Raw Cane Sugar, they are non-GMO project verified, and use their crops as fuel to generate renewable electricity. Aside from that, my family loved this recipe so much that I decided to share it with you guys.
