Gaam | Kim-Chi Fried Rice with Egg

I love Korean food for multiple of reasons.  Two main reasons is because it is very easy to make and is very healthy.  Kim-chi is really good fermented cabbage for your stomach.  Kim-chi is good for gut health.  I enough this spicy kim-chi fried rice dish because it is so easy to make.  Usually the dish is made with white rice if you eat at restaurants in Koreatown. I like to substitute the white rice for brown, purple, or cauliflower rice.  The health options are endless!
