Kimchi making is often a very labor intensive process. In fact, every November is dedicated to kimchi making, call it the kimchi making season. But today, I will show you how to make a very simple recipe of stuffed cucumber kimchi called oi sobaegi 오이 소배기.

My recipe differs slightly from the original Korean recipe, due to my residency in the US, but the flavor and theory of making this dish will be basically the same.

This cucumber kimchi is enjoyed throughout the year, but particularly around summertime for its cool and refreshing effect of the cucumbers. Try making this very simple kimchi recipe and tell us what you think of it!
