First lady Michelle Obama disclosed her recipe for kimchi, Wednesday, as her husband President Barak Obama commences his second term.
Along with the photo of the Korean dish, she tweeted: "Last week, we picked Napa cabbage in the garden. Now we're using it to make kimchi in the kitchen. Make it at home."
The recipe was posted on Michelle Obama's Twitter account with her comments and photo of jars of kimchi and the harvested cabbages grown in her garden.
The kimchi in the photo she posted does not look as red as the Korean traditional variety with scallion, white radish, spiced with fresh Korean chili powder, garlic, ginger, sugar and salt. The ingredients and preparation were also modified slightly for Western tastes.
