Summer Wellbeing Gut-Health Recipes – Poached Eggs with Vadasz Raw Kimchi

Serves 2

Ingredients

  • 2 pieces of sourdough
  • 2 eggs, poached
  • 1 large avocado, diced
  • 2 tbsp Vadasz Raw Kimchi
  • ½ teaspoon chilli flakes

Method

To poach the eggs, bring a large pan of water to the boil and add a large pinch of salt.

Crack the eggs into separate bowls and add a few drops of vinegar to each. Whisk the boiling water so it swirls in a whirlpool, turn the heat down so the water is at a gentle simmer then slide in the eggs.

Poach for 3–4 minutes. Remove with a spoon and place on a warm plate.

Toast the sourdough then top with the poached egg and dollop of Vadasz Raw Kimchi then sprinkle with chilli flakes.

Enjoy with tea or juice.

Dr Sarah Schenker, consultant Dietitian and Nutritionist at Vadasz’s reasons to include fermented ‘gutness’ in your our diet:

  • Fermented foods are rich in beneficial probiotics and have been associated with a range of health benefits from better digestion to stronger immunity.
  • Probiotics produced during fermentation can help restore the balance of friendly bacteria in your gut. This can help to alleviate some common digestive problems often experienced after an indulgent time.
  • Probiotics have a significant impact on your immune system helping to reduce your risk of winter infections such as the common cold.
  • Consuming fermented foods can also help you to recover faster when you’re already sick.
  • Fermentation helps break down nutrients in food, making them easier to digest than their unfermented counterparts.
  • There is evidence that fermented foods may improve heart health, mental health and aid weight loss helping you to get rid of those unwanted extra pounds.

Middle Eastern Dip with Super Beet Kimchi

Topped labneh with a swirl of olive oil and crispy seeds, nuts, fresh coriander, mint and dill topped with Vadasz Raw Super Beet kimchi.

Serves 2

Ingredients

  • Labneh – natural goat’s milk yoghurt, or full-fat cow’s milk yoghurt and a little salt.
  • Olive oil
    Seeds (we used sunflower)
  • Nuts (we used a handful of pistachio)
  • Sprig of coriander
  • Sprig of mint
  • Sprig of dill
  • Spoonful of Vadasz Super Beet Kimchi
  • Pita or chopped vegetables to serve

Method

  1. Create the labneh first by straining yogurt until it loses most of its liquid. Stir in a little salt, place it into a linen cloth or tea towel and set over a strainer. Refrigerate for several hours, until the liquid drains and it will leave you with a delightfully thick, spreadable labneh.
  2. Swirl with olive oil, top generously with Vadasz Super Beet Kimchi
  3. Garnish with seeds, nuts, fresh garden coriander, mint and dill
  4. Serve with slices of pita and chopped vegetables
