Instant Cucumber Kimchi using Versatile Korean Flavoring Mix instructions
Use 5 cm of the top part of a carrot which is around 50 g; a 5cm piece of daikon radish that's about 7 to 8cm in diameter, which is about 100 g..
Julienne the carrot and daikon radish (use a vegetable slicer). Massage the julienned vegetables with a pinch of salt (not listed in the ingredients, about 1/3 teaspoon)..
Cut up the cucumber roughly and sprinkle it with some salt (not listed in the ingredients, about 1/2 teaspoon) and leave for about 10 minutes. (Each cucumber weighs around 90 g and yields 10 pieces.).
Squeeze the carrot and daikon radish tightly to eliminate excess moisture. Wrap the cucumber in paper towels and press down hard to get rid of the surface moisture..
Put the vegetables from Step 4 and the finely shredded ginger in a plastic bag..
Add the cho-gochujang (Korean seasoning mix) and rub it in as you mix the vegetables. Eliminate the air from the bag as you close it up. Leave to marinate in the refrigerator for 5 to 6 hours..
If you are going to eat it right away, add 1 tablespoon less of the cho gochujang, since the vegetables are salted..
This shows how it looks after marinating for 10 hours. A lot of moisture has come out of the vegetables and the flavor has become quite mild. If you think it needs more flavor, you can add more cho gochujang at any time..
