Vegan Kimchi Cream Pasta – Must Try

Yields: 1 Serving Difficulty: Easy Prep Time: 5 Mins Cook Time: 15 Mins Total Time: 20 Mins

This vegan kimchi cream pasta is the perfect balance of tangy and creamy. It is so addictive that I had it two days in a row! This is a quick and easy pasta that really only takes as long as your pasta noodles take to cook.

Okay, I am not sure where this dish originated as the first time I saw it was in Singapore. Was it a legit Korean invention? Or a Korean-American fusion? Or some weird Asian mutation? Please leave a comment and let me know if you know!

This recipe is best with the classic baechu kimchi or kimchi made from napa cabbage. But, really, you can use whatever kimchi you have on hand. It’s more a matter of aesthetics than taste!

Once mixed in with the cream, the kimchi isn’t really that spicy so if your kids are adventurous, this vegan kimchi cream pasta is a great dish for them to try. If cooking for kids, change the soju to mirin, or leave it out.
