I gave one jar to my parents, one jar to my girlfriend Amanda’s parents (who lived in Korea for a few years), and I kept a jar:
I ate some of the kimchi plain as a side dish, and it was pretty tasty. I was looking for something else to do with it, though. A lot of recipes call for mixing it with rice, which just will not do for we followers of the Primal lifestyle. So, I decided to scramble it with some eggs.
It may not look like much in my low-quality cell phone photo, but it was delicious!
I drained a few forkfuls of kimchi, sauteed it for a minute in a hot pan, then turned the heat down and cracked in a few eggs and mixed it all up, letting the eggs cook until they were to my liking. Make sure your cook the kimchi first, or else your dish will have a salad-like consistency. That is no good, unless you like that sort of thing.
Next, I plan on throwing a bunch of kimchi, chicken, and various vegetables in the slow cooker for dinner. I will post a recipe when I decide to make it!
