  • Vegetables

    Cut the nappa cabbage, broccoli, cucumber and carrots into bite-size pieces, slice the spring onions into rings. Deseed the chilli and cut into rings. Mix the vegetables and layer in a bowl with the salt. Fill the bowl to the brim with water, leave to stand for approx. 35 mins.
  • Kimchi sauce

    Mix the rice flour and water until smooth, bring to the boil while stirring. Remove the pan from the heat, allow the mixture to cool a little and expand. Stir in the garlic, ginger, sesame oil, soy sauce and apple sauce.
  • To decorate

    Thoroughly rinse the preserved vegetables in water, drain, rub the kimchi sauce evenly into the vegetables, including between the individual layers of cabbage leaves and vegetables. Transfer the vegetables to the preserving jar, press down so that no air pockets remain between the cabbage leaves. Leave a finger's width at the top of the jar to allow for the lactic acid fermentation. Seal the jar and allow the contents to ferment at room temperature for up to 2 days. Sprinkle with sesame seeds to serve.
  • Shelf life:

    Store the kimchi in the fridge and use within one week. Ideally prepare only a small amount and use the rest of the vegetables for a soup, for example.
