Do you like the idea of kimchi but don’t like anything too spicy? Have you had a whiff of kimchi from your companion’s plate and wondered if something died in that direction? Of course, I am biased, and I wonder if VFA’s Spicy Kimchi might be just right for you. It is spicy, but I’m going for medium in terms of heat and maximum in terms of flavor. It is also vegan. Don’t get me wrong– I love me some fishy, shrimpy, stinky kimchi, but this isn’t it. Garlicky, gingery, loaded with roots, and balanced with paprika (a trick I learned from my friend, Saida, who taught me to make kimchi), this kimchi is delicious, approachable and a great companion to any dish.
