I love making kimchi but it is Norbert who enjoys eating it more than I do. He loves spicy and sourish flavours. Instead of having kimchi as side dish, I prefer using kimchi in dishes such as kimchi noodle soup, kimchi tofu soup and kimchi pancake. Not only can you can have your dose of good probiotics from the kimchi, most people (including my carnivorous husband) does not mind those dishes are vegetarian. Continue Reading →

Mak Kimchi (Quick Cabbage Kimchi) – the spicy addictive Korean dish that you must absolutely try, with a dose of natural probiotics

After my 1st attempt at making kimchi with bok choy, I kinda become hooked. Actually Norbert loves it more than I do. We’ll eat it with everything from fried rice, noodle soups to pancakes, onigizaru, and, of course, straight out of the jar. This traditional Korean dish creates the healthy bacteria, Lactobacillus (the source of probiotics), during the fermentation process. When we eat fermented foods, it is almost like taking probiotic supplements, except it is delicious and far less expensive. Continue Reading →

Bok Choy Kimchi with Cucumbers

To resume blogging after a hiatus is harder that I thought. With many ongoing projects and remembering to get enough down time, writing for the blog became less of a priority. I have postponed writing too many times that I have to schedule in daily mandatory ‘writing’ time. Since my last post, I’m getting much better than expected, with occasional fatigue in between days. By following the new routine I’ve shared in my previous post and a careful intake of food, I’m feeling more energised and alert by the day. One of the things I’m doing to help with my digestion is increasing the intake of fermented or cultured food, that has beneficial bacteria. Continue Reading →

I’m pretty obsessed with Korean food, especially Gochujang paste. I love to use the paste to season meat or fried rice.

I’m off to short trip with my mama and I’m excited to have another favourite blogger to showcase a delicious Korean dish! She’s Gomo of cHowDivine – a lawyer by day and talented cook at home. Her blog features healthy food, especially Korean food. I stumbled upon Gomo’s blog a few months back and I couldn’t stop browsing her blog, going from one delicious post to another.. Japchae (Noodle Dish)Ddukbokki (Spicy Rice Cakes), Pajeon (Scallion Pancake), and many more. It then hit me – Korean food is actually very healthy.. it’s now my new love, gotta learnt up more korean words for my soon-to-be frequent visits to Korean restaurants. As we are both on gluten free lifestyle, I feel connected to Gomo. Remember my recent post on Banana Bread with Dark Chocolate Chunks and Walnut, that’s Gomo’s creation.
