Chef Roy Choi paired with Kevita to create this unique kimchi recipe! We love the idea and decided to re-create it with one of our favorite kombucha brands, Health Aid.

Instructions: 
  1. In a large bowl, whisk together water and salt.
  2. Split the Napa cabbage and soak in salted water for 30 minutes.
  3. While cabbage is soaking, whisk together chili powder, onions, kombucha, garlic, ginger, and salt in a separate bowl until a paste is formed.
  4. Remove cabbage from water. Let drain and dry for another 30 minutes.
