    Recipe Tip 

    To fry an egg in the microwave, spray a microwave-safe bowl or ramekin with cooking spray or brush lightly with vegetable oil. Sprinkle with a pinch salt. Break 1 egg into the container. Pierce both yolk and white with a fork a few times. This will help prevent the egg from exploding. Cover the dish with plastic wrap, pulling back some of the plastic wrap to allow venting. Microwave on HIGH for 30-45 seconds, or until egg white is set and the yolk is still runny.

Kimchi 101

Kimchi is a traditional side dish in Korea. It’s made from a mix of fermented and salted vegetables, including cabbage and Korean radish, seasoned with garlic, ginger, fish sauce, Korean chilis and more. The fermentation process gives kimchi a very unique mix of flavors. Kimchi is sour and tangy but also slightly savory with a kick of spice!

This major staple of Korean cuisine has been on the rise in Western cultures for many years. You’ll find it in restaurants throughout the world and it’s easy to find at your local supermarket. Kimchi is often said to be the heart and soul of Korean cooking and is a great ingredient for many recipes. Try it in this Kimchi Vegetable Sushi or maybe a Quick Bibimbap.
