our favorite Kimchi recipes
Our goal is to show you just how versatile kimchi is! Kimchi is such a healthy and delicious way of upgrading many of your everyday dishes. We guarantee you'll love these!
Winter time doesn't keep us away from BBQ! There's something deeply soul-warming about bbq'ing in the winter. Ok fine, well maybe we are not actually grilling outside, but it doesn't mean we can't bring those delicious bbq flavors inside!
Next time you get the itch for a tasty project, try this recipe. Kimchi and BBQ are a match made in heaven. In fact, Korea is famous for their BBQ. On every street you'll find a wealth of restaurants dedicated to the art. Unlike traditional American BBQ, each table has their own grill implanted in the middle of the table for everyone to grill to their own liking. Enjoy!
Creating a great recipe doesn't always require a reinvention of the wheel, sometimes just small adjustments. Here's a great classic recipe with a few adjustments to make it vegan but still very tasty. Kimchi fried rice was one of my favorite comfort-dishes while in Korea. Sit down to a bowl of this after a long day and you'll see why, too.
I recently fell in love with the whole "bowl" fad (I know, I know, I'm late to the game) and now they are my go-to almost every weeknight for dinner. Who would have thought throwing a bunch of healthy stuff in a bowl and topping it with a delicious dressing was so feasible? Genius, I know!
There are SO many things I love about making these bowls; The combinations are endless, I can include all those veggies that are starting to go bad, they're extremely well-balanced, and they take no time to put together.
Here's one that Gianna made using our kimchi. The pictures say it all. Enjoy! :)
Someone once told me the more colors I eat, the better. Behold! The Kimchi Beet Burger! Is it even possible to look at these pictures and not want to make this? I didn't think so.
Kimchi is such a healthy way of adding a ton of flavor and texture to most savory foods. Here's another great recipe. How else have you been cooking with our kimchi?
Our new White (non-spicy) Kimchi is absolutely delicious! It's the same recipe as our Original minus the red pepper flakes which makes for a completely different taste. We use a lot of raw ginger so there's a ton of flavor.
Here's our first recipe featuring our White Kimchi. We've paired it with Jack Fruit, a relative of the fig family. Believe it or not, Jack Fruit has a very similar consistency to pork or chicken and it takes on the flavor of whatever sauce or seasoning you pair it with so it's amazing to cook with. This recipe could be made into a burrito, sushi, or a plate. Enjoy!
As a Jew from NJ who once lived in South Korea, it's only inevitable I attempt the Kimchi Bagel. "Blasphemous" and "Sacrieligious" are just some of the initial reactions muttered, but naysayers always convert to yaysayers after tasting this delicious combination.
We are a world filled with people from unique backgrounds and upbringings. We all stay uniquely our own but borrow ideas, techniques, and knowledge from others to innovate, invent, and create. Matt's Kimchi celebrates the nuances of every culture. Through food, we can create countless combinations which make us realize #CultureIsBeautiful.
We named this one the "Asbury Park Grill Kimcheese" because back in 2015, when Matt's Kimchi was merely an idea, we set up a booth at the Asbury Fresh Market to test our kimchi and see how people liked it. Fiona created this unique take on the classic grilled cheese and it was such a hit that nearly all of our customers kept returning week after week.
The bite of the toasty sour dough, the texture of the crunch and gooeyness, and the complex balance of fatty, sour, sweet, and herby are all what make this sandwich incredibly tasty.
I'd say about 90% of my days I'm eating the same breakfast - some variation of eggs, greek yogurt, or fruit smoothies. It's good and all, but it's nice to throw in a change-up, especially when I'm cooking for guests and trying to wow 'em. This is a new go-to breakfast recipe I learned from Gianna, our kimchi-recipe guru. It's super tasty, filling, and healthy - Enjoy!
Kimchi is such a healthy way to start your day, so I'm constantly thinking of new creative ways to incorporate it into my breakfast. Do you have any great kimchi breakfast recipes? Send 'em over!
When Will Smith produced "Summa Time" he was obviously talking about these rolls. Ok, maybe not, but regardless these Summer Rolls are DELICIOUS! Fresh, sweet, tangy, and umami - You gotsa try these.
Who else eats like a savage during summertime celebrations, and then tries to clean up their act once they're home? Yup, me too!
For me, these last few weeks have consisted of a home-move, a wedding, Father's Day, and a few days sampling literally everything at the Fancy Food Show. This weekend I have another wedding plus July 4th. So today I'm drinking lemon water and making this broccoli rabe and kimchi wrap.
This wrap is super fresh, clean, and unique, and only takes a few minutes to put together. I definitely notice that when I eat well, my whole outlook on life improves. Enjoy!
If you're like me, then you too wish you could eat sushi every single day. And if you're like me (again), then you sadly don't because it would destroy your savings account. Fortunately it's so easy to make sushi at home and it's a heck of alot less expensive. Plus I get mad boyfriend points everytime.
This is our third sushi-related post, but it's because I often eat sushi and put kimchi in it. Why? It's healthy and goes beautifully with avocado, rice, and raw fish. Enjoy!
Kimchi is one of the most versatile and healthiest ingredients, and this recipe is a testament to that. Here we take cajun creole spices, our beloved kimchi, and incorporate it into a homemade black bean burger.
Packed with SO much unique flavor, I guarantee you'll eat this and feel incredible (and astounded that it's vegetarian). This recipe requires a bit of finesse, but feel free to reach out if you need some pointers. Enjoy!
Hosting a party but trying to stay true to those health goals? We've all been there...and failed. Fail a little less next time and make these sushi donuts! They're very easy, super light and delicious, and will be sure to impress your guests.
Sometimes you can simply think of kimchi as a pickle. In the same way as a pickle, kimchi's sourness cuts through the fat and elevates the flavor of whatever cheesy fatty food you are eating. Except unlike a pickle, kimchi is packed with so much flavor from the raw garlic, ginger, onion, and red pepper flakes it's made with.
The grilled kimcheese is one of my all time favorite kimchi recipes because it's such a simple and incredible reinvention of an American classic. Take one bite of this sandwich and I guarantee a "Oooooo yeaaa". Plus, whoever said you couldn't make a grilled cheese healthy?? Pshhh. Enjoy!
Deeply satisfying, yet light and refreshing - The bright flavors of this bowl will surprise you. This is a recipe you must try. Why? Because it's shockingly very easy to make, it's extremely healthy, and I bet you haven't tried this combination of flavors before. This recipe happens to be vegan, but if you prefer meat go ahead and add grilled chicken.
A cultural and healthy take on the classic Reuben - You're welcome, tastebuds! If you haven't heard of nut cheese yet, this is where you find out. And thank us. ;)
An unbelievable balance of deep and complex flavors mingle together in this sushirito. Utterly fresh, your soul will thank you for nurturing it with this bundle of goodness. Spicy, tangy, crunchy, creamy, are just some of the adjectives that'll come to mind when you take a bite.
Let's first take a moment to properly pronounce this dish: [shok-shook-uh]. Good! Now quickly repeat it ten times while doing a little dance. Feel cool? Thought so!
Although the name may illicit memories of NBA Jam's most memorable catchphrase "Boom Shakalaka", shakshuka is actually a middle-eastern dish made with poached egg and spicy tomato sauce. Traditionally shakshuka is not made with kimchi, but being that kimchi pairs so well with pretty much all the ingredients in this dish, we naturally had to try it.
This is probably one of the easiest recipes you’ll ever come across. It's amazingly delicious, super healthy, and can be made for breakfast, lunch, or dinner!
Make something exciting tonight... Like Kimchi Fried Rice! This crowd-pleaser is fun to make, versatile, and oh so good. Plus it makes for amazing leftovers. Try it with any type of grain, protein, and/or veggie combination.

You can play around with all the mix-ins using what you have on hand (ie scallion, tomato, mushrooms, etc.) or you can follow our recipe.
Fall and Winter are coming and the air is getting crisp! Warm your bones with this flavorful and healthy soup recipe.
This is one of the tastiest things you'll ever eat! The kimchi cuts through the fat of the avocado and egg providing a new depth in flavor to an already amazing combination. It's super healthy and quick - You can put this together in under 5 minutes.
