Lazy Kimchi Fried Rice (What I Ate in a Day + My Vegan Cafe)

In today’s ‘What I Ate in a Day’ vlog, I featured all the food I ate, my vegan cafe (me working and eating!), PLUS some clips of me settling into my new home! If chill, relaxed and unprofessional vlogs are your thing, make sure to watch the video below and don’t forget to scroll down for the written recipe of the Lazy Kimchi Fried Rice I had for dinner.

Today’s video is a very chill day of me showing what I ate as I try to power through my day despite my exhaustion! If you’ve been following my stories on Instagram, you’ll know that I recently moved into a new condo — and having to move TONS of stuff (guys, I think I might be a  hoarder LOL) while trying to keep up with work (YouTube and the cafe) is no joke! 

I’ve recently been feeling out of touch with my online life so I decided to film a short vlog of me settling in my new home (still in Calgary), and briefly sharing what it looks like when I work at the cafe. 

A glimpse of my cafe

If you don’t know this yet, my mom and I own this little vegan cafe in downtown Calgary called SaVeg Cafe. I’ve been working a lot here lately because we’re understaffed. Nothing too special — just me filming myself eating and doing some coffee action.

So the above photos are the dishes I had for breakfast and lunch — the Breakfast Bagel and the Bulgogi Burrito. Both are in our cafe menu and would love it if you gave it a try when you can visit someday. 

You can visit SaVeg Cafe at 637 11 Avenue SW, Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Deliver and takeout available thru our website:

Moving on, since I got back home from the cafe, I was too tired to cook anything extravagant so I opted for a simple, lazy dish where I mixed up some kimchi, rice, chickpeas, and some broccoli. It was my first time cooking at my new place. The result was this delicious Lazy Kimchi Fried Rice — of which the simple “recipe” you can find below! 

That concludes the short walkthrough of how my day went. Don’t forget to watch the video above to spend the day with me and scroll down to get the written recipe for my Lazy Kimchi Fried Rice below~

Lazy Kimchi Fried Rice


Note: no measurements because I didn’t measure! This was simply a very quick and easy dish I made when I didn’t want to cook. Watch the video for more context, please~

  • Oil for cooking
  • Diced onion
  • Sour vegan kimchi (recipe HERE) – I prefer to use sour or over-fermented vegan kimchi for kimchi fried rice
  • Cooked rice (at least a day old)
  • Green peas
  • Garlic powder
  • Chickpeas
  • Soy sauce or coconut aminos
  • Toasted sesame oil


  1. Heat oil in a pan and saute onions with vegan kimchi for a couple of minutes.
  2. Add in chickpeas, green peas, garlic powder, and rice. Mix well. 
  3. Add more kimchi and kimchi juice, if needed, along with soy sauce and toasted sesame oil. Mix. Give it a taste and add more seasonings if needed.
  4. Enjoy!
