Kimchi is a Korean dish of fermented vegetables, most often Napa cabbage. Don’t let the fermenting process deter you, it’s actually very easy to make and the fermentation process provides wonderful gut health benefits. Kimchi contains Lactobacilli bacteria, which are amazing for creating and maintaining a healthy gut microflora. Also a key bacteria in getting rid of a candida infection.
Kimchi is traditionally made with Napa cabbage, but you’re welcome to mix and match vegetables as you see fit. Purple cabbage is also a good option, especially when it’s in season at a great low price. Using both Napa cabbage and purple cabbage creates a really beautiful kimchi.
Here’s a recipe for making a small batch of kimchi. Once you’ve made a batch you’ll know what to adjust to make it just for you.
