I had planned to make a big batch of kimchi, but couldn’t find any decent looking Napa cabbage. Instead, there were some very nice organic bok choy, so I decided to make a little variation in my recipe. It turned out quite good.
Being from New Mexico, where chile rules, I feel I have to say that ‘chili’ and ‘chile’ are not the same thing nor is it a typo. ‘Chili’ powder is a blend of spices, with ground chiles being only one of many ingredients. ‘Chile’ powder is the dried, red chile pods ground to a fine powder with nothing else added. I used the second because I haven’t had any luck finding a certified gluten free version of the Korean spices normally used in kimchi.
