Kimchi is a traditional Korean side dish made from fermented cabbage and veggies. There are as many kimchi variations as there are vegetables, and all of them are tart, tangy and delicious. Like other fermented foods, kimchi is a natural source of probiotics, which improve gut health and give tired immune systems (and taste buds) a boost.
You can find kimchi in the refrigerated produce section of most mainstream supermarkets as well as your favorite Asian specialty market. To make the stew, bring broth to a boil, add the kimchi, and simmer until the flavors come together and your house smells heavenly. Feel free to throw in the random vegetables that are close to wilting in your crisper drawer, and any cooked grains or rice, to make a hearty meal.
