It’s National Grilled Cheese Day and I’m spicing things up with a Kickin’ Kimchi Grilled Cheese Sandwich! Don’t worry if you didn’t realize that today was National Grilled Cheese Day April is actually Grilled Cheese Month so you have all month long to enjoy this one. Not that there is a right or wrong time to enjoy grilled cheese, it’s a classic comfort food for a reason. Maybe not at the top of my comfort food list personally but I’d still consider it one.
So like Monday I’m upgrading the classic and honestly have been craving this one more than the one I posted on Monday. Crazy I know as I finally figured out how to recreate a tasty delicious version dairy free but in the years it took my to finally make that one happen I found a place in my heard for this kimchi version. If you haven’t tried kimchi yet add it to your list! Unless you aren’t a fan of spicy foods, although it isn’t that spicy and really depends on the kimchi as there are so many variations and kinds out there. Kimchi is a fermented food that’s packed with beneficial probiotic cultures and good for the gut. I personally love Farmhouse Culture (not sponsored, should go without saying) as it not only tastes good but is organic, and plant-based vegan. If you’re wondering how fermented vegetables couldn’t be vegan it’s because some versions are made with seafood based products, just an fyi if that’s of concern. This one I would say is a little spicy, I like spicy but trust me it’s not mouth on fire spicy. I add kimchi to pretty much anything and everything going through phases where I could go through bags in a week. If you love kimchi, or aren’t sure what else to do with it besides here are a few ideas:
On top of sweet potatoes, soup, in sandwiches, in tacos, on burgers, the options are endless though and I share many other ways of enjoying it on Instagram Stories, or you can message me. If you’re a fan of kimchi let me know your favorite way to enjoy it so I can try it!
Ok back to the real news of the day, this Kickin’ Kimchi Grilled Cheese Sandwich! Again it’s made with my personal favorite Miyoko’s Fresh VeganMozz, dairy-free/vegan, cheese that is my go-to for pizza and grilled cheese. Not to mention other things.
Look how it melts!!! Yes I did cut the sandwich upside down so it’s covering the top of the bread since that should be the bottom but hey I was down to the last of my bread when I had to make it again because the first pictures were too dark and not my favorite because of this lovely weather. I have fresh sourdough going in the oven today so we can have grilled cheese tonight before the girls head to soccer and dance but wanted, nope make that NEEDED to, share this with you because it’s just that good.
If you’re not a fan of spicy or kimchi you might like the Grilled Cheese Tomato Sandwich I posted on Monday.
