    Kimchee- What do I do with it?

    Shop Now
    I bought some kimchee from the farmer's market. I like it, but have no idea what to do with it. Right now, I just have a bite or two and put it away...what does it go good with?

    times that i've had it, i just eat it. but, i could easily see it going well as an addition to a salad, or along some some good pork or sausage.

    Goes great with any meats, the sharpness cuts the fat. I made a big batch of short ribs for lunch through the week a while back, and had kim chi with that.

    You could also stir some into scrambled eggs, or serve alongside eggs.

    Kimchi rice rocks.

    I like it with beef (sliced or ground) cooked with some onions, garlic, ginger, sesame oil, and gluten-free tamari. I put that on a bit of rice and add a whole lot of kimchi because it's one of my absolute most favourite foods ever. It's a lazy Korean-ish go-to meal for me.

    I buy mine from an elderly Korean man at the farmers market here, and he's always pleased and amused when my partner and I try out our limited Korean to say hello and thank you. I have to put the jar in my fridge when I get home though--I learned the hard way that otherwise it will keep fermenting and can leak out of the jar and flood my pantry shelf with kimchi juice.

    Not buying it from the man at the local market, no. He uses a traditional recipe and doesn't add MSG.

    Take kimchi, sliced bananas, sliced parboiled sweet potatoes and fresh chopped garlic and ginger root. Add dried red chilies if you like heat. Fry it in virgin coconut oil. Dress with tamari and a little toasted sesame oil. Trust me.
    Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.
