Now that my daughter is back at college, the house is empty again, but for me and my mom since the hubby is away on business. And when it's hot and humid, the last thing you feel like doing is cooking over a hot stove. So for lunch, I needed something quick and simple with what was in the refrigerator: leftover rice, a big jar of kim chee and eggs. I also had some tired looking cilantro, but the leaves were still green. What the heck, I chopped them up stems and all and threw them on top. A sunnyside up egg over hot rice drizzled with soy sauce is often my go-to quick lunch and sometimes dinner, but this time, with the kim chee pairing and the cilantro, it was absolutely delicious. Eaten Thai-style with a fork in the left hand and spoon in my right, it hit the spot. This fast food lunch was ready in minutes and polished off in no time!
When frying your egg, use a generous amount of oil and fry until the whites just turn white, but the yolk is still runny. Sprinkle some black pepper over. Lay the egg on the rice and break open the yolk over the rice and then add soy sauce. Something magical happens when runny yolk meets soy sauce and is spooned over rice.
Make sure you get some spicy kim chee and cilantro in that one bite. Enjoy!
