Make

  1. Heat a wok or skillet over medium-high heat. Add first part of cooking oil. To heated oil add mushrooms and saute until mushrooms are tender, ~5 minutes. Add bell peppers, coleslaw mix, and carrots and saute until tender, ~2 minutes.
  2. Stir in quinoa, kimchi, garlic, soy sauce, and pickling liquid. Let quinoa cook without stirring for 1 minute to let it crisp a bit on the bottom of the pan. Stir everything together until quinoa is heated through.
  3. Remove quinoa from heat and stir in toasted sesame oil. Top with cilantro. Cover pan to keep warm.
  4. Heat a nonstick pan with second part of cooking oil. Crack eggs into heated oil and fry until cooked to your liking (on one side for sunny-side up or flip for over-easy.)
  5. Serve quinoa with fried eggs and aioli on top. Squeeze lime wedges over everything. Enjoy!
