This is a quick version of buchu kimchi that uses more spice and peppers. I also have another version of buchu kimchi that takes a bit longer to make.

Recipe Ingredients:

  • 2 bunches of Korean chives (buchu 부추)
  • 2 green hot peppers
  • 1 red pepper
  • l cup of hot pepper powder (gochugaru 고추가루)
  • 1 cup of water
  • 2/3 cup of clear fish sauce (aekjeot 액젓)
  • 1 tbsp ginger root, grated
  • 2 tbsp garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp roasted sesame seed (kaesogum 깨소금)
  • 1 tsp sugar

Recipe Steps:

  • Buy chives that have narrow leaves, and are not too long – this being traditional type. Wash carefully in a bucket of water, rinse and drain.
  • Cut peppers in half; remove the seeds, and cut into narrow strips.
  • Mix hot pepper powder with 1 cup of water, then add fish sauce, garlic, ginger and sesame seeds – mix well.
  • Mix everything together in a bowl -- chives, peppers and sauce, tossing lightly. You can eat this fresh or store in the room temperature for a day and refrigerate to keep it fresh.
