    HOW do I know?

    ok, have some brats to use up and thanks to some people who replied to a Recipe request

    thought I would do brats with kim - chee

    1 brat has 27.5 g of protein 2 grams carbs

    I put the ingredients (in the formats acceptable to zaar) and the nutritional value came to be 18.3 carbs to 8.9 protein

    the recipe is not made public yet

    here's the list of ingredients I had to use to make sure all nutritional values were recorded

    1/2 head cabbage
    1 tablespoon salt
    1 cup carrot
    1 cup radish
    2 green onions
    3/4 cup tamari
    1/2 cup water
    1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
    1 tablespoon garlic
    4 chili peppers

    per calorie king it does not make a difference what kind of cabbage I use so that's ok

    there is a slight difference between regular radihs and daikon radish but nothing to worry about .3 to <.1

    onions..doesn't matter what kind u use ir red, spring onion etc

    adding one brat with the kin chee would make it an ok dish re carbs are lower than protein

    other than using 1/2 cup carrots, less tamari (say 1/2 cup as 3/4 sounds like a lot)

    what suggestions could people here make to make the kin chee a tad more healthier? Guess could always put in shredded cheese eh?

    Thanks in advance for any replies

    I would think you could leave out the carrots entirely actually - I'm not sure if I have ever had any kimchee with carrots in it before. The type I can purchase doesn't have any in it either, that I can recall.

    (That isn't to say you can't use carrots in kimchee - I just think you could easily omit them without a bad end result)

    I found this very cute video of a woman making kimchee step by step:

    She does add some sugar though, but notes that she uses half sugar/half artificial sugar - so I think you might be able to use all artificial if needed.

    LOL Isn't she adorable !!!

    I think that kin chee works specifically because of the half sugar, half artificial sweetener and also the rock the amount of Korean red pepper she put in lol

    think will stick to the one I have posted as is heaps healthier and will lessen the carrot, maybe add red capsicum for colour too

    will have a play when I can get out to get the ingredients too

    thanks for your time and reply

    always appreciate

    late reply .. but I think they usually use sugar in kimchee to help the fermentation process. Not that it won't work without it since veggies have some naturally occurring sugar (carrot would probably have more than cabbage).

    Anyway my point is that for this subbing an alternative sweetener is probably unnecessary as it won't fuel the ferment process (I don't think). It's not really there for sweetening in that sense.

    just curious how it turned out with no sugar mickey?
