What is kimchi?

Kimchi is a traditional Korean dish considered a staple in Korean cuisine. The dish is made by fermenting vegetables, such as cabbage, with various seasonings like carrots, scallions, ginger, garlic, and more. It is important to note that not all types of kimchi are vegan, so it is advisable to check the labels before purchasing it.

ingredients to prepare avocado kimchi toast


  • Kimchi: I buy kimchi but do not prepare it at home. I always check that the kimchi jar I’m buying is vegan. I chop it small with a well-sharpened knife; it usually comes in large pieces. You can chop it with a knife, board, or food processor.
  • Scallions. I like to use the white and dark green parts. Each one has a different flavor and texture that adds to the dish.
  • Toasted sesame oil, I recommend you have it at home, it is very good for many recipes.
  • Large avocado cut into cubes
  • Sesame seeds, black or white
  • Mayonnaise and bread.

How to prepare kimchi avocado Toast

  • When you have all the ingredients prepped and ready, toast your bread. You can use a toaster or over a grill.
  • Combine chopped kimchi and sesame oil, toss the scallions and seeds in a medium-small bowl, and mix carefully with a fork.
  • At last, and being very careful not to over-mix, add the chopped avocado.
  • Put a thin layer of mayonnaise on each slice of bread and finish with a tablespoon of the avocado and kimchi mixture. Finish with a pinch of kosher salt, drizzle chili oil, and toasted sesame oil, or sprinkle with black or white sesame seeds.

Tips, tricks & other recipes:

  • I love kimchi, especially spicy ones. But if it is your first time eating kimchi, start with a mild one. Usually, I will buy it, as it is quite complicated to make.
  • Again, if it is your first time eating kimchi keep in mind that it is a fermented food, it can be a little smelly when you open the jar. The smell will pass, no worries.
  • What does kimchi taste good with? Kimchi goes great with rice, stew, and pretty much everything that could use an extra bit of kick.
  • Kimchi usually comes in big chunks; I chop it to have a more even bite.

Give this recipe a twist

  • Instead of vegan mayo you can use vegan cream cheese or mix cream cheese with the chopped kimchi and spread it over large slices of country bread for appetizers. If the mix is too thick, add a little kimchi juice to thin it out.
  • Add some cilantro or green onions for a fun, fresh twist.
  • Add soy sauce if you like more of an umami flavor or minced garlic cloves if you want more of a bite in your avocado mix.

Why are going to love this recipe

  • Since this is not a typical avocado toast, it’s not made the same as everyone else’s. However, this makes it unique; every bite provides a full experience of flavor and deliciousness.
  • Kimchi and avocado complement each other perfectly in terms of flavor. The avocado’s creamy texture balances the kimchi’s spiciness, providing a strong yet harmonious taste.
  • Is kimchi good for you? Yes. Kimchi, a staple in Korean cuisine, is made with fermented vegetables, providing gut-friendly benefits.
  • Is kimchi good for breakfast? Absolutely. Kimchi is one of my favorite foods because of its versatility. Whether for breakfast, lunch, or a quick snack, I find it a delicious and satisfying option. The combination of spicy, savory, and tangy flavors makes it a perfect addition to any meal, and it’s a great way to add some variety to my diet. I love mixing it with rice or noodles or eating it straight out of the jar for a quick and easy snack.
