What is kimchi?

It’s no secret that I’m obsessed with fermented foods. I first got hooked after making my own kimchi at a farmers market a few years ago. From the second we closed the lid of the jar I was fascinated by the transformation that was taking place inside. I’m not going to tell you how to make your own here – there are people far more qualified than me to tell you that. But what I will do is tell you what it is and why you should start adding it to all of your cheese toasties from now on!

For those of you who don’t know, kimchi is Korean pickled cabbage. It’s similar to sauerkraut but packed with garlic, ginger and chilli. As you can imagine it’s packed full of flavour. It’s spicy, full of umami richness but also sour. Kimchi also retains a fantastic “crunch” that reminds you it’s made of raw veggies that have been fermented.

    Kim chi is a tasty super food. I put it in my ramen with a boiled egg as I’m a ” lacto-ovo-vegatarian “. I’ll have to make this Kim chi cheese toastie soon.
