Things to do with Kimchi….
Kimchi’s caught fire! Yes, this Korean-style fermented cabbage is a spicy superfood. It’s a probiotic, too, so it’s good for you andfor your gut microbes. To make kimchi, green cabbage is fermented with salt, garlic, ginger, onions, red chili powder, and fish sauce or anchovy paste. Kimchi is a great companion for Korean BBQ, of course. But it’s also a terrific addition to so many foods we love. Try it on grilled sandwiches! Add a spoonful of kimchi to green salads, breakfast scrambles, or hot dogs and burgers.
