Red Cabbage Kimchi

Red Cabbage Kimchi

This spicy Korean condiment is great with grilled meat, on a sandwich, or stirred into some fried rice.  Traditional Kimchi is usually made with green cabbage, but I love the bright purple color of red cabbage.

  • 1 jalepeno, about 4 inches long
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1/4 C. sugar
  • 2 T. ginger
  • 1 dried Thai red chili pepper
  • 2 T. fish sauce
  • 2 T. salt
  • 1/2 head red cabbage, chopped into large bite sized pieces.

Pulse all ingredients except the cabbage in a food processor until it forms a chunky paste.  Toss the paste with the cabbage to coat evenly.  Cover and refigerate for at least 3 hours.  This can be made up to three days in advance.  Yes, it is spicy and salty!

    I absolutely love this dish, but it always reminds me of the Ralph Wiggum quote: “It tastes like burning!”
