White Kimchi (Mul Kimchi or Water Kimchi), a less spicy but just as appetizing as the classic cabbage kim chee. Makes a light and refreshing side dish.

White Kimchi Recipe

(serves 4-6)



1 (3 pounds) Chinese cabbage (napa cabbage)

12 cups water

1 cup sea salt (you can also use coarse kosher salt)


Mul kimchi stuffing:

1 (1 pound) Japanese daikon radish, peeled and sliced into thin strips

2-3 fresh mushrooms, stems removed and sliced into strips

1 nashi pear (Chinese pear or Japanese pear), peeled and cut into strips

1 stalk spring onion, minced

3 red chilies, seeds removed and sliced into thin strips

4 cloves garlic, finely chopped

1½ teaspoons fresh ginger root, finely minced

½ cup sugar

1 cup water



How to make Korean water kimchi:

1. Remove the outer leaves of the cabbage. Cut it into half lengthwise.


2. Take about a handful of salt, and rub it between all the leaves. Set it aside.


3. Meanwhile, make the salt brine. Combine water and the remaining salt in a large pot, stir until no salt is left.  Put the cabbage into the salt solution and allow the vegetable to soak for approximately 3-6 hours.


4. Take out the cabbage, and drain. Rinse it under running water but make sure not to over-rinse because you still want to retain some of the salt water.


5. To make the white kim chi stuffing, place the rest of the ingredients in a non-metallic bowl and mix completely.


6. Separate the leaves of each cabbage halve, and spread a bit stuffing between each leaf. Be sure that all the leaves are evenly coated on both sides.


7. Put the cabbage in an air-tight food container. Let it sit at room temperature for at least 3-4 hours before placing it in the refrigerator. Serve cold.


Enjoy Korean white kimchi as a side dish, with rice or noodles. Mul kimchi is also a common ingredient to make many dishes including white kimchi soup.
