Ingredients

Serves 2-3

 

Produce

1 cucumber cut in 3 equal pieces

1 tbsp coarse sea salt

1 tsp sesame seeds

 

Refrigerated

1/2 cup Kimchi paste

Feta cheese to sprinkle

 

Oils & Vinegars

1 tsp sesame oil

 

Directions

  1. Make cross like cuts through ¾ of each cucumber piece (refer to the photo).

  2. Sprinkle sea salt over and inside the cucumber slices thoroughly. Leave for 10 min.

  5. Stuff this mixture into the cucumber pieces. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and feta. Enjoy!

 

Tips

  1. Instead of Kimchi paste, you can use ½ cup Kimchi, 1 tsp red pepper paste, 1 tsp soy sauce and 1 tsp sesame oil.

  2. Lasts up to 4 days in the fridge. It’s not going to ferment and age like Kimchi, so better eat it fresh! But it’s a good way to practice salting cabbages, if this is new to you :)

  3. Fun fact: Cucumber Kimchi is served in Korea during springtime, when people lose appetite. The texture and the flavor help regaining the appetite.
