I thought I’d go ahead and post some pictures and recipes that I already had from another website. They don’t have the best presentation, but I’m going to work more on presentation when taking pictures from now on… I just need to get my camera!

Kimchii – This is a traditional Korean staple. It can be eaten as an appetizer or as a garnish with other dishes. It may seem kind of scary at first, but it is spicy and delicious. In this recipe I used vegan kimchi base, make sure you check the label carefully because many kimchii brands have anchovies in them.

kimchii

1 small bottle kimchi base
2 cups chopped (in big chunks) Napa cabbage
a few green onions, in 3-4″ pieces
radishes, cut into quarters
1 tsp salt

Add all the veggies into a container that has a lid and add kimchi base, about 1/4 cup water, and salt. Can be enjoyed as is, or wait a few hours or days and it will be spicier.

Haluski AKA “Cabbage and Noodles” – This dish is Polish and is traditional in New England . I got this recipe online and changed it around a bit to have more of an asian feel to it.

Haluski

Original
1 cabbage
1 lb. of noodles
1/2 to 3/4 cups of vegan margarine
salt & pepper

Directions:
Cut cabbage in half and cut out the core. Cut each half into long, thin-ish strips. Put cabbage strips in a large pot along with the margarine over medium heat. Use 1/2 to 3/4 cups margarine (1 to 1 1/2 sticks) depending on how big your cabbage is. Let the cabbage and margarine simmer until cabbage is wilted and yellow. While cabbage is simmering, boil your pound of noodles. When both cabbage and noodles are done, drain the noodles and mix them with the cabbage. Stir. Add as much salt and pepper as you desire.

Mine
5 cups Napa cabbage
2 cloves garlic, minced
½ small onion, minced
1 cup noodles (I used macaroni b/c that’s all I had)
3 tbsp vegan margarine
hot sauce or chili paste to taste
salt and pepper
Add margarine to skillet, once melted all garlic and onion. Once the onion is lightly cooked, add cabbage. As this is cooking, boil noodles. Add the hot sauce or chili paste, and salt and pepper to skillet. Once noodles are done, drain them and add them to the skillet. Stir and cook a couple more minutes.
