Add Kimchi for a taste of Korea

Add Kimchi for a taste of Korea

With Korean cuisine continuing to soar in popularity within western countries, it's about time you were able to bring the authentic and delicious flavours to your home. At Asian Home Gourmet we offer a specially created kimchi spice paste that can be added to just about anything.  

Kimchi is a traditional fermented side dish made of nappa cabbage with spice paste. The pickled vegetable can be added to many dishes, such as soup and stir fries. Here are a few of our favourite dishes that pair perfectly with the fiery pickle.

Bibimbap

Bibimbap is one of the most popular Korean dishes. The word bibimbap literally means 'mixed rice' is a bowl of warm sticky and crispy rice topped with meat, vegetables & a fried egg. A classic bibimbap would not be complete without the hero of Korea, kimchi. Add the fermented cabbage to give your bibimbap a tasty kick.

Spicy Cold Kimchi Noodles 

If you're in the mood for something easy and wholesome, then try this bowl of goodness.  Noodles, served with a juicy kimchi broth and meat of your choice with a variety of green crunchy vegetables like bok choy, broccoli and napa cabbage. You can use regular wheat noodles or an udon noodle to add extra texture and slurp-value to your meal.

Kimchi Seafood Hot Pot

A Korean hotpot is the perfect hearty meal for dinner. Add a variety of seafood like clams, crab, prawns and squid to make your hotpot fragrantly delicious. Don't forget your kimchi on the side, which will balance out the saltiness of the seafood and add a burst of spice and freshness.
