Kimchi is a flavorful condiment, but did you know that it was also a natural probiotic? Eating a side dish made of spices and cabbage is a great way to support a healthy digestive system. And when it comes to choosing how to eat the delicious condiment, you have unlimited options! Let’s take a look at the five best ways to add kimchi to your diet.
Burgers are a great source of protein, but often people forget to add veggies as sides or as toppings. But with kimchi, you have an easy way to add a vitamin-rich food to promote a healthy digestive system. You can use ground meat if you like, but ground pork mixes perfectly with chopped kimchi. You can add a little sesame soy mayonnaise to your kimchi burger, and you will have a delicious main dish that the entire family will love!
The best thing about Kimchi is that it can be added to almost anything. While you may have a few condiments that you always add to your tacos, Kimchi is a great condiment that won’t take away from the flavor of anything else you like to throw on your tacos. Kimchi pairs perfectly with sour cream, cheese, and any of your basic taco fixings. If you want to add more variety to your taco nights with a delish condiment, make sure to add kimchi!
So far, we’ve mainly focused on Kimchi being a condiment added to a main meal. But Kimchi itself can be very filling, and you can even make it the main focus of one of your dishes. If you don’t have a lot of time to cook but don’t want greasy fast food, consider making kimchi fried rice. With just brown rice, onions, garlic, green peppers, kimchi, and a fried egg, you can have a delicious meal whipped up in a matter of minutes.
You can call this a “fusion food” if you want to, but all we know is that it’s delicious! This is also a super easy meal to make if you’re pressed for time. You can add whatever you like to this amazing dish, but we recommend pairing the kimchi with scallions and sesame seeds. Yummy!
Pulled Pork Sandwich
If you’re a big pulled pork fan, you’re going to love this! All you really need is the pulled pork, cheese, and kimchi. Again, this is a super easy dish to make that you can serve weekly. Your family won’t get sick of pulled pork kimchi sandwiches anytime soon!
