Quick Kimchi

  • Active Time 15m
  • Total Time 40m

8 servings, 1/2 cup each

This quick, spicy, tangy cabbage side dish stands in for the traditional salty Korean staple. Unlike fermented kimchi, this quick variation is best eaten shortly after preparing and does not keep its crunchy texture when stored. Enjoy it with grilled meats or chicken.

ingredients

  • 1 small head napa (Chinese) cabbage, cored and cut into 1-inch squares (about 8 cups)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons distilled white vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons fresh ginger, finely grated
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper red
  • 3 scallions, sliced
  • 1 carrot, peeled and grated

directions

Meanwhile, whisk vinegar, oil, ginger, salt, sugar and crushed red pepper in a large bowl.

Add the cabbage, scallions and carrot to the bowl and toss to combine. Refrigerate for about 25 minutes before serving.
