Vegan Kimchi Alfredo Linguine

May 3, 2021
My two favorite cuisines at the moment are Italian and Korean so I had a eureka moment and thought—why not combine the two? Hence—kimchi alfredo linguine. Kimchi is made of fermented cabbage and is an amazing probiotic that's quite sour in taste. These days, you can find Kimchi everywhere and on everything, including; burgers, chips, grilled cheese, you name it. In this dish, the Kimchi complements the creamy alfredo sauce as it cuts through the richness and adds some zing. It sounds odd, but it's something you need to try.
