Loads of Kimchee-what can I do?

I bought a huge container of the cabbage kimchee (the red spicy one) this week and am tired of eating it. What else can I do with it apart from eating it plain? Is Kimchee eaten in any other way?

  1. You might do a search on "kimchee" on this board...we've really discussed it at great length recently and some people get VERY creative with it!...that said, sons and I love it on Ramen noodles and miso soup, for starters. Here's a link to a recent discussion....hope this helps you!

    1. Kimchi potato pancakes or pa jun are popular

          I second the jjigae.

          Throw in some tuna or pork, maybe some mushrooms, maybe some tofu, some garlic, sesame oil, fish sauce, water then garnish with green onions and you've got yourself a perfect dinner for a chilly winter evening.

        2. Invite me over for a meal .... :-)

          I really like a kimchee-spam sandwich on an crusty french roll.

          Also, I like to top some melba toast with kimchee and some Raclette as an appetizer.

              I second this! I made a kimchee fried rice this weekend w/spam this weekend. This is a comfort food that reminds me of the days when I was little and my family was struggling to achieve the american dream. I used really old kimchee for this one, lite spam, jasmine rice (all I had on hand), and sesame oil. It was very tasty.

                  Yes! My husband's favorite dish: Kimchee fried rice with butter, bacon and scallions. It's seriously good.
