what can I do with my kimchee besides stand in front of the fridge and eat it

out of the jar with my fingers?

I know about kimchee in jigae and fried with rice; any other ideas?

Thanks in advance.

  1. I love Kimchee!! Kimchee and Short Grain rice are one of my ULTIMATE comfort foods...

    But if I want to cook with it, I either...

    Do a Kimchee Omelet. Kinda like korean omelets with scallions, shrimp, and kimchee...

    A Kimchee dumpling Soup. Add kimchee to a broth and dumplings

    In fact, you add Kimchee to homemade dumplings! I love Kimchee Mandu! :)

      Kichee = the perfect compliment to cut the richness of broiled or BBQ red meats.

        I make asian pulled pork - pork butt - roasted low and slow - pulled and mixed with five spice teriyaki sauce - top with kimchee - makes a great sandwich - filling for spring rolls, etc....

    2. I love it chopped into tuna for a tuna sandwich.

      In the winter I make a soup with kim chee, shredded cabbage, scallions and tofu in chicken broth. Put some of the juice from the kim chee jar in at the end.

      1. Kimchee is also great with seared tofu, a miniscule amount of soy sauce, and scallions...

        1. As a garnish for cold cucumber and yogurt soup. You'll find the recipe here:

          1. Make kimchee pajun - Korean pancakes. Add chopped scallion, pork and/or seafood with a generous amount of kimchee to pajun mix that you pick up at the Korean store, or make your own (1.5c of flour, 0.5c of rice flour, 1 egg, approx 2c water, salt and pepper to taste).
