Are you looking for something to spice up your regular menu? Give kimchi a try. Not only is it tasty, it provides numerous health benefits with regular consumption.
Kimchi is a traditional Korean food made with fermented Chinese cabbage, garlic, chili paste and other spices—depending on the recipe. It’s like the Asian version of sauerkraut.
Kimchi adds flavor and kick to a variety of dishes, from soups and sandwiches to salads and stir fry, and it provides numerous health benefits, including improved digestive health and reduced risk of heart disease.
The multi-use condiment can be found in many grocery and specialty food stores, but it’s also fairly easy to mix up a batch yourself. Most recipes include chopped Chinese cabbage, salt, water, garlic, and other flavorings.
Wondering how this fancy version of coleslaw can actually give your health a boost?
Here are the top health benefits of kimchi.
