This is a mixture of carrot, celery cabbage and cauliflower and is spicy-hot! Celery cabbage is similar to bok choy which can be substituted. Posted for ZWT 4.

WOW! DH just loved this dish. That doesn't happen often. He did say he thought it should be hotter so next time I will add in more pepper flakes. I also warned him to not add salt... (he loves salt, and he has low cholesterol) lucky guy. I made this with bok choy because, I wasn't sure and really didn't know what Chinese/celery cabbage was. So any way this was worthy of 5 stars (even though "I" thought it was a bit salty.) Thanks for posting. :)

This is different than the kimchee I buy at the oriental food store, but it is very good...espcially if you like hot, spicy food. I substitute cucumber for the cauliflower and kept everything else the same. This kimchee is a little on the salty side. The next time I make it I think I am going to cut down on the salt.
