Farmer Joe’s & Friends

All about Farmer Joe’s Marketplace

Seoul Kimchi

I was at the store today fulfilling my urge for some fresh broccolini when I ran into these ladies with free snacks. I’m all over the free snacks at Joe’s, so needless to say I ponied right up to their table. The ladies were stir frying Seoul Kimchi ($3.09/16 oz) and tofu. At first, I was taken aback. Tofu and I have not the best of friends. When I first left the South and crossed the Mason Dixon Line, I had never seen tofu. I bought a chunk, thinking it was white cake. I’ve never quite forgiven it for that deception, or perhaps showing me my ignorance. Anyway, I had to think twice about the kimchi and the tofu today, but it smelled so good I took the plunge. I was glad I did. The Seoul Kimchi is spicy delicious balanced out by the creamy smooth taste of the tofu. Fabulous! The recipe is too simple. Buy the Seoul Kimchi and let it ferment for an additional week to ten days in the refrig. Stir fry with a little olive oil in a frying pan and add in chunks of tofu. Viola. Scrumptious out-of-the-ordinary dinner for two for under $5.

  1. Kimchi can be hot or hot as hell. I had some Korean C-rations when I was in that neck of the woods.
