Kimchee Bowl for Lunch!
One of my favorite quick meals is a kimchee bowl—grilled chicken marinated in kimchee juice, pan-seared Italian squash on a bed of seasoned rice with a generous side of fine-aged Napa cabbage kimchee (baechu). It’s a nice combination of flavors and textures: the grilled chicken is savory, tangy, and sweet; the rice is seasoned with toasted sesame seeds, katsuobushi (bonito flakes) and sweetened rice vinegar. Of course everything is much better when it’s served with kimchee and toasted sesame seeds.
