Kimchi Avocado Toast

As you already know, fermented food is a part of my daily life. Kombucha is my best friend, sourdough bread is my therapy coach and kimchi and pickles are my helpful neighbors. Normally, I eat all these fermentations as they are, but I also love to introduce them in different dishes and create interesting recipes.

Today, I prepared a recipe using kimchi. My family loves kimchi, and my son always notices when it's finished and asks me to make another batch. We usually eat kimchi as a snack.

For my last fermentation workshop, I was unsure of what recipe to prepare with kimchi. Should I make a salad or a sandwich? After discussing it with my assistant, she convinced me to make a kimchi toast, and she was right! The recipe was a big success.

But before I share the recipe with you, let me tell you a few interesting things about kimchi.


Kimchi is a traditional fermented Korean dish that can be prepared using various vegetables and fruits.  It has been a staple in Korean cuisine for centuries. In recent years, it has gained popularity in the West due to its distinctive flavor, versatility, and reputation for being a healthy food option.

The most popular kimchi type, baechu kimchi, is typically made with cabbage. In addition to cabbage, it may include ingredients such as radishes, scallions, carrots, garlic, ginger, chili flakes, and other flavorings.

Kimchi has a sour, salty, savory, and often fiery taste. It can also feel slightly fizzy on your tongue due to fermentation by live probiotic bacteria.

If you have never tried kimchi, I highly recommend doing so, especially if you love fermented, spicy and Asian cuisine. Kimchi is not only delicious but also very healthy. Some of its health benefits include supporting gut, heart, and blood sugar health, improving nutrition, promoting weight loss, and reducing inflammation.


This recipe is both quick and easy to make while also being very healthy. I suggest using sourdough bread for an added health boost. The sandwich is nutritious and well-balanced, with healthy fats from avocado, probiotics from kimchi, and nutrients from sourdough bread.  Moreover, coriander adds extra vitamins and freshness to it.

I highly recommend trying this sandwich for breakfast!



  • 1 cup drained cabbage kimchi, roughly chopped

  • 1 ripe avocado, halved, pitted, peeled and sliced

  • 1/2 tsp lemon juice

  • 4 large slices sourdough bread, toasted

  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds

  • First, mash the avocado with a fork and mix it with lemon juice, salt, and pepper.

  • Line up the toasted bread and place 1/4 of the avocado slices on top of each toast.  

  • Next, spoon the kimchi onto the toast and sprinkle the sesame seeds and coriander evenly over the toast

  • Finally, serve immediately and enjoy
