Another Kind of Sort Of Kimchi: The Pickled Perilla Leaf.

Food

Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Recipe Difficulty: Very Easy
Servings Amount: 6

Recipe Lead: …for that time you bought this green leaf but had no idea what to do with it…

Ingredients
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce (to keep it GF)
  • 1.5 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp Korean pepper powder*
  • 1/2 Fresno chili (sliced)
  • 2 scallions (chopped)
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp black sesame seeds
  • 20-30 fresh perilla leaves**
  1.  Mix all ingredients together to make brine/dressing.
  2. Place one perilla leaf in an airtight container (like a large mason jar or tupperware).  Spoon a little of the dressing onto the top of the leaf.  It does not need to be neat and it does not need to cover the entire leaf.
  3. Place a second leaf on top of the first one and repeat until all leaves are stacked and covered with dressing.
  4. Pour any remaining dressing over the top of the stack.
  5. Place in fridge for one day and enjoy with rice.

**This is what perilla leaves look like.  You can buy them at your local Asian grocery store.
