View Full Version : looking for recipe: KIM-CHI

Does anyone have a RAW KIM-CHI recipe?
I usually buy a jar in the refrigerated section of Whole Foods
that is quite tasty; but it is 10bucks for a small jar.
Trying to be more economical.
I love this over brown steamed rice. I always lose weight when eating
this combo...I was thinking if I sprouted the brown rice,
can I eat it like that? just sprouted and no cooking. :confused:
Sorry if this is a stupid question, just never have tried it (sprouting intimidates me for some reason, but I need to get over that hump).

Punky, you can sprout rice, but I found I didn't care for it much. But, I found out I love sprouted wild rice!
Good Luck, Tracy

(Note: I have not tried it)
1 medium to large sized napa cabbage, shredded
2 cups carrot, shredded
1/2 c red bell pepper, diced
1/2 onion, shredded
1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 Tablespoon ginger, minced
1 teaspoon honey
1/4 teaspoon red chili flakes, more if you like it hot
1 Tablespoon sea salt
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and allow to sit over night or at least a few hours for the flavors to mingle.

Yeah, sprouted wild rice is great -- actually it's a grass, not a rice -- I don't know anyone who hasn't loved it, even non raw foodists. It's used in a curry at a local raw cafe. Yum.
This Kim Chee recipe is from Eating Without Heating: Favorite Recipes from Teens Who love Raw Food by Sergei and Valya Boutenko:
Live Kim Chee
In a gallon jar, place:
2 heads Napa cabbage, chopped
1 head bok choy, chopped
4 cloves minced garlic
1/2 hot pepper, minced
1/2 C. water
1 T. salt
2 T. paprika
Put in Viamix:
1 T. honey
1 pc. sliced ginger
1/2 C. apple cider vinegar
Blend well, then pour into jar. Press and squeeze cabbage in jar. Don't cover with lid; put cheese cloth or something similar so it can breathe. Ferment 3 days (but can eat after 4 hours), the put in fridge.
Yields 1 gallon
I hope this works for you, Punky. I haven't made it myself, but if there's any question about the recipe, you can always visit their website rawfamily.com and maybe ask them directly.
I tried sprouting a couple days ago for the first time. I was very hesitant, myself. I have to tell you that I just did what Alissa says in her book and it was super easy. Even fun. Just used a big bowl, a paper towel to cover it, and a colander for the rinsing and draining.
