Somedays you just wake up with a crazy idea in your head… Wait, you don’t do that? Well, I just decided I really wanted to use kimchi in more of a savory ball recipe.
After a quick internet search I didn’t find what I was exactly looking for, but did find one that I thought sounded great and that I could add kimchi into.

I made the recipe according to directions, but then divided it into thirds. Keeping one third true to the recipe, adding kimchi to the second third and sauerkraut to the last third.
Because of the moisture in kimchi and sauerkraut I added almond flour to help firm them up.
Kimchi – 1 cup kimchi and 3/4 cup almond flour.
Sauerkraut – 1/2 cup of sauerkraut and 1/2 cup almond flour.
Now, once I made them I felt like they wouldn’t be great to eat as is. So I ended up flattening them and frying them in olive oil, similar to a falafel. And let me tell you that’s the way to go!
And it’s so much fun when you get feedback. Here’s a picture of my friend and her mom, enjoying them for breakfast. Thanks guys! 😊
