Kimchi is a staple in our house. We treat it like a condiment and love finding new ways to use it. I’ve added kimchi to my salads and Buddha bowls. I've dolloped it onto chili, mixed it with my scrambled eggs, and tossed it with roasted vegetables. I’ve topped my husband’s hamburger with it, replaced his slaw with it, and snuck it into fried rice. Of course I also just eat it straight from the jar!

Sneaking kimchi into your diet is a good thing. It’s a delicious and healthy fermented food with many health benefits. It provides a rich source of natural probiotics and is known to promote a healthy digestive tract and improve regularity. Not just good for its probiotic properties, it also contains cabbage (a cruciferous vegetable), garlic, ginger, and red pepper powder, all of which are nutrient superstars in their own right.

You can buy kimchi in any Asian market and depending on where you live, you might even find it in your local grocery store. You can also make your own kimchi by following these simple steps.

This recipe using kimchi and frozen kale might be the simplest recipe ever. And I love it.

I’m all about simple when it comes to whipping up a quick veggie side dish. But, simple doesn’t mean flavorless. Thanks to the kimchi, this dish is also big on flavor!

I hope you’ll experiment with kimchi at your house. Come back and let me know what you create!
