8 Kimchi TikTok Recipes to Spice Up Your Life – and Your Lunch

8 Kimchi TikTok Recipes to Spice Up Your Life – and Your Lunch

Kimchi is one of the most versatile, healthy, and delicious fermented foods. It’s easy to make and cheap to buy and goes with just about anything.

While you can eat it straight out of the jar, sometimes you need something more substantial.

We’ve put together a list of kimchi recipes from TikTok so you can use up the leftover jar in your fridge. Or use it as an excuse to buy more kimchi; we’re not here to judge.

Kimchi TikTok Recipes

@andy_cooks Kimchi cheese toastie

With two slices of bread, kimchi and some cheese, you can make a warm, filling and comforting toastie that tastes like nothing you’ve had before.

Andy uses brioche bread and dauphinoise cheese, but this recipe tastes amazing with any cheese that melts nicely and whatever bread you have at home.

Kimchi pasta by @thetastebud

Vince mixes butter, garlic and spring onions together with kimchi, cream, gochujang, cheese and gochugaru to make a sauce. Afterwards, he stirs in cooked pasta and tops it off with air-fried spam.

This pasta is calling my name.

@hoemgirl and her mum make kimchi macaroni cheese

Speaking of pasta, this recipe has a spicy twist on classic macaroni cheese. Cook your béchamel sauce and pasta like you normally would, but mix in chopped kimchi and kimchi juice before baking. Bone apple teeth.

Oatmeal by @thekitchn

If you’ve never had savoury oatmeal before, now’s the time to try it. Cook spring onion, onion, garlic and kimchi until it’s soft. Add your rolled oats and water and boil until it thickens. Add soy sauce, an egg and some cheese for the finishing touches.


This cheesy, savory, spicy spin on oatmeal will make you rethink breakfast 🥣#savoryoatmeal #savoryoats #savorybreakfast #breakfastideas #oatmealtiktok #comfortfood

@franziee_v’s kimchi jjigae (kimchi stew)

Kimchi jjigae is one of the most popular stews in Korea thanks to its spicy warmth. You can add almost any toppings you’d like, but traditionally pork or beef is added along with silken tofu and spring onions.

One of the best Korean recipes out there is kimchi pancakes. It’s filling and goes perfectly as a side dish — especially at Korean BBQ.
