What is kimchi?
Kimchi, originating in Korea, is spicy lacto-fermented cabbage, traditionally made with chopped, salted Chinese cabbage, garlic, ginger and gochugaru (ground Korean chilli flakes). It is traditionally eaten as a side dish or condiment, but it can also be used in soups, stews and stir-fries.
Where to buy kimchi
Homemade kimchi is a great way to use up any leftover vegetables hanging about in your fridge. If you can’t find Korean chilli flakes, just use dried chilli flakes instead.
Kimchi (spicy, fermented cabbage and vegetables) adds flavour and health kudos to this tofu dish.
