Bright, funky and fermented.

A study suggests that a bacteria found in kimchi could increase metabolic activity and help digestion in general. Here, 6 ways to make the bright and funky fermented pickle at home.

1. Traditional Napa Cabbage Kimchi

Food & Wine:

This classic recipe includes napa cabbage, ginger and garlic.

2. Sparkling White Kimchi

Food & Wine:

F&W Chef-in-Residence David Chang uses 7-UP in this fast recipe. It adds lovely bubbliness to the cabbage.

3. Turnip Kimchi

Food & Wine:

Most kimchi uses lots of red chile flakes and are bold and spicy. This is a white kimchi, which means it’s made without the red chile.

4. Quick Cucumber Kimchi

Food & Wine:

Traditional kimchi usually involves days of fermenting, but these cucumbers are marinated for just a couple of hours so they’re still crisp.

5. Spicy Cabbage, Carrot and Daikon Kimchi

Food & Wine:

Add this kimchi to stir-fries, top burgers with it or just eat it straight from the jar.

6. Fresh Cabbage Kimchi

Food & Wine:

Garlicky, spicy and delicious, this quick kimchi combines crunchy bok choy and tender Napa cabbage for an interesting mix of textures.
