Vegan kimchi is a delicious and healthy alternative to the traditional Korean dish. It has the same spicy taste but without the use of animal products 😀. In this blog we will show you a simple and quick recipe for vegan kimchi that you can recreate at home. Kimchi, a fermented vegetable full of probiotics, has long been praised for its many health benefits.
Kimchi is a traditional Korean dish made from fermented vegetables, usually Chinese cabbage, and a seasoning mix of chili, garlic, ginger and fish sauce or shrimp paste 🙂 . But in this vegan version, we just use soy sauce instead of the animal products.
1 medium Chinese cabbage
2 cups water
2 tablespoons salt
2 tablespoons soy sauce
4 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
2 tablespoons gochugaru (Korean chili powder)
2 tablespoons sugar
3 spring onions, sliced
1 carrot, julienne cut
1. cut the Chinese cabbage into strips and place in a large bowl. Sprinkle the cabbage with salt and massage the salt into the leaves. Let the cabbage stand for at least 2 hours to release liquid.
2. while the cabbage is resting, you can prepare the seasoning mixture. Mix soy sauce, garlic, ginger, gochugaru and sugar together in a bowl.
3. then slice the green onions and carrot and add them to the seasoning mixture.
By using fresh vegetables, you increase the amount of beneficial probiotics in your kimchi. 👍✅😎
4. after the cabbage has had enough time to release the liquid, rinse it under cold water and squeeze it well to remove excess salt and water.
5. add the cabbage to the seasoning mixture and mix well until every part of the cabbage is covered with the mixture.
6. place the vegetables in a fermentable jar and press down as far as possible to remove air bubbles.
7. leave the jar at room temperature for at least 1 week. After a week, you can taste the kimchi. If it has met your taste, you can put it in the refrigerator.
The fermentation process transforms the vegetables into a super healthy probiotic food that is both delicious and good for your digestion.🙂🤣🥰
Vegan kimchi can be used both as a side dish and as an ingredient in various dishes. It goes well with rice, ramen, tofu, salads and much more. Try it and let your creativity run wild in creating delicious and healthy vegan dishes with your homemade kimchi.
Vegan kimchi is easy to prepare and requires no special skills or equipment. All you need are the right ingredients and some patience. In a week (or less, depending on your taste) you can enjoy the perfect vegan kimchi at home. Enjoy the health benefits of this delicious probiotic blend while doing your part to save animals and the planet.🙂❤🍀
