Quick Korean Cucumber Kimchi

2 English Cucumbers, thinly sliced

1 tsp Sea salt

1 Tbsp Gluten-Free Gochujang (omit for Paleo/Whole30)

1 tsp Gochugaru flakes

1 tsp Sesame oil

1 Tbsp Pure Maple Syrup

1 Tbsp Rice Wine vinegar

1/2 cup Green onion, diced

2 Cloves Garlic, finely minced

1/4 tsp Black pepper

1 tsp Sesame seeds (opt)


Thinly slice cucumbers (I prefer a mandoline) and place into a colander. Sprinkle over salt, mix well and let sit for 15-minutes.

While the cucumbers are sitting, in a medium bowl, combine remaining ingredients and stir. Once cucumbers are ready, hand squeeze out excess water and set into gochujang mixture. Mix well and enjoy!
