Chef Tips

You can find both kombu and mirin in the Macrobiotic section of the health food store.

Kimchi is made from vegetables fermented in a spicy hot pepper paste. It can be found in many Asian markets, the most common being made from Napa cabbage. But any kind of seasonal vegetable can be used for kimchi – carrots, daikon, red radishes, seaweed. Anything. See what you can find experiment to find the one you enjoy the most.

If you are vegan, use soba noodles or rice sticks instead of egg noodles.
