Creamy Kimchi Noodles

 
 
Kimchi is one of our favorite fermented foods, it’s a little sour, a little spicy and amazing for gut health! What could be better than a dish revolving around this amazing food!

This pasta is a kimchi lovers dream. You can use a store bought kimchi but make sure it is plant based and doesn’t have any shrimp or fish in it. You can also take one of our Fermentation workshops and learn how to make your own!
