Vietnamese Kimchi

Category, DifficultyBeginner

This is a very simple recipe that we have from a local restaurant. Vietnamese kimchi normally is not as spicy as the Korean one. It is often added in a separate small dish to most meat meals we ordered in small local restaurants.
Kimchi is high in fiber, vitamins A, B1, B2, B12, calcium and iron and it is low in calories.
