What is Kimchi?

Kimchi is a traditional, spicy Korean side dish made from fermented vegetables. In Korea, kimchi is served with most meals, so be warned: it’s very easy to get hooked on!

Soy Sauce Flavor

Soy sauce has a unique umami flavor that goes particularly well with Asian-inspired dishes, like this Veggie Fried Rice recipe. You can also use soy sauce as part of a glaze for your meats like in this Soy Glazed Salmon With Pineapple Rice or this Jasmine Rice With Ginger Soy Chicken.

Beaten Eggs in Your Cooking

The great thing about beaten eggs is that you can use them in a wide variety of different ways in your cooking. For example, you can scramble them like in this Mexican Breakfast Scramble. You can also use beaten eggs to make breaded chicken, as in this BBQ Fried Chicken Rice or this Buffalo and Blue Cheese Chicken.
