  • 150ml of vegetable oil
  • 50ml of aquafaba, (the liquid from a can of chickpeas)
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled and crushed

Fritters

  • 250g of gluten-free self-raising flour
  • 1/2 tsp gochugaru, (Korean red pepper flakes)
  • 1 tsp gluten-free baking powder
  • 100g of rice flour

Method

1

To make the kimchi, place all ingredients apart from the vegetables into a blender and blitz until almost smooth. Add the paste to the vegetables and massage well, until liquid starts to seep out. Place into a jar, seal and leave at room temperature for 3-5 days (depending on how warm it is). Open and close the jar each day to allow built up gas to escape – check for bubbles and taste it after 3 days. Refrigerate when it gets to the flavour point you like

  • 3 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 75g of fresh ginger, peeled
  • 25g of soft dark brown sugar
  • 30g of gochugaru, (Korean red pepper flakes)
  • 25g of white wine vinegar
  • 10g of table salt
  • 600g of mixed vegetables, such as swede, celeriac, fennel and/or white cabbage, julienned or spiralised

Clean the blender then place the aquafaba, mustard, garlic and vinegar in the jug. Blend together, then slowly drizzle the spring onion oil in, little by little until emulsified. If it begins to split, add a splash of cold water to bind it again. Season to taste
