    Tofu Kimchi Stew

    This Korean-inspired stew stars fibre-rich kimchi, a fermented cabbage that’s thought to help improve digestion courtesy of its friendly bacteria. Its tangy and fiery personality is a perfect foil for mild and silky tofu. You can find kimchi at any Korean market and some natural health food stores. For more kick, place a bottle of the Korean hot sauce known as gochujang on the table.
