Kimchi is a very popular lacto-fermented vegetable side dish from Korea. It's very easy to make at home and can be adapted to suit your tastes. It is a great, and tasty, way to get more probiotics into your gut.
Cucumber is a refreshing change from the Winter vegetables one gets bored with at the end of the season. This quick, simplified version of cucumber kimchi will spice up any meal and wake up everyone from the Winter lethargy.
Kimchi is spicy, hot, sour and, like most fermented vegetables, very healthy. High in fiber, low in calories and fat, packed with vitamin C and carotene, it is a real wonder food and a highly addictive delight.
