…to make eggs. Then i said, breakfast for dinner. Then i said sauerkraut and eggs. I googled that and actually found recipes but it led me to kimchi and eggs…..which ended up as kimchi pancake. Am i the only one that falls down that recipe rabbit hole?
So we had kimchi pancake
It was my first try so by no means perfect but this tasted YUM!
I googled korean squash and found something resembling this
I wanted something fresh so i grabbed an heirloom tomato and made a quick dressing of lime ponzu and mayo…it worked
So i bought some kimchi saurkraut (which is yummy by the way….its saurkraut with kimchi seasonings), and had no idea what to do with it. My reference is saurkraut wih potatoes and sausage.
So thats what i did. White rice, potatoes in tamari and shrimp sausage. I basically used a shrimp burger recipe and shaped it as sausages, rolled in foil, froze to firm up and baked them.
I wanted to grill. I was thinking how we grill kimchi at korean bbq….somehow i didnt get grilled kimchi but i got kimchi, grilled soy things, grilled rice cakes…
I made some sprouts and cucs as sides:
Since my partner is allergic to sesame…i made it with hot chili oil and gochujang and salt
Found this recipe online…quick marinade. Salt sugar and coconut vinegar and i threw in a few pepper flakes and garlic
The rice cake marinated a bit in kimchi
Soy ginger dressing on the eggplant
Bok choi with hot oil
It all gets grilled
Homemade kimchi on the side
Jim bought me a new cookbook after we heard the authors on the radio
Amongst the treasures was a doable looking kimchi recipe.
And after a trip to the korean market and the farmers market i went to it:
Salted soaked and drain my veg…
Then combined the flavor:
Korean red pepper flakes
Tamari (gluten free soy sauce–aka soy sauce made with so not wheat)
Plus some rice wine vinegar, garlic and ginger
And there she sat for a day at room temp, then six in the fridge.
And today we are making
Stinky tofu will ferment at room temp for 48 hours. Then it will get fried…so monday is probably rice and stinky tofu night
Meanwhile, i totally made another batch of kimchi, and have a jar saved from batch 1 for kimchi fried rice during the week.
