Kimchi is a traditional Korean side dish made from salted and fermented vegetables. It is most typically made with cabbage, radish, garlic, onion, and other seasonings and spices like ginger and chili flakes or powder.

Kimchi Soup

This kimchi soup is a great option for meal prep! You can make a big pot in under 30 minutes over the weekend and use the leftovers for lunches or dinners during the week.

This soup will also last for about a week in the refrigerator. To reheat, simply toss it in the microwave (with a paper towel cover to prevent splattering) to warm it up or you can just reheat it in a pan on the stove.

It’s also freezer-friendly if that’s your preferred method for meal prep. Just freeze the soup and let it thaw out in the fridge when you are ready to heat it up and eat it.
