I first became enamored with kimchi after encountering it at a food festival in NYC last summer. My friends and I had sampled a few too many of the desserts on offer and were in search of something to cleanse our palates from all that sugar. Eventually we stumbled across a booth selling kimchi – problem solved. I can’t remember anything ever tasting so refreshing in it’s spicy tang.

Since then I’ve been borderline obsessed with incorporating it into my life wherever possible. Mostly I eat it plain but recently I came across this recipe that incorporated it into a stir fry and I was instantly sold. Though the original recipe only called for stir frying it with beans and tempeh, I added some asparagus into the mix because I never feel like a meal is complete unless it contains something green. Plus they added a nice hint of sweetness to all the other bold flavors in this meal.
