Mild Ramp Kimchi Print 2 LikeDislike By Linda Cho Fermented food is great for gut health, creating a protective lining in our gut, aiding in digestion, giving us a nutritional boost, detoxifying our intestines and aiding to weight loss. They also all taste great. The hallmark of fermented food in Korean culture is “kimchi” and while I love them, my stomach usually has a hard time with the spiciness. Usuing already flavored vegetables like ramp. allows me to go easy on the spiciness. If ramp is out of season, you can substitute for leeks, garlic scapes, Asian chives, and so on. I eat them in a rice roll, in sandwiches or as a side to any meal.
