Low Carb Carbalose Kimchi Fritters. I walked into my local neighbor Beaumont Market to talk to a friend and the only way to go in is left by the cheeses and some odd refrigerated items. A jar of kimchi with a REDUCED sticker on it caught my eye immediately. Gads, $2.00? For a fermented food? It’s never going to go out of date so I grabbed it as quickly as I could. Now, I eat kimchi relatively regularly so this is nothing out of the ordinary. I ate a serving with Kassler Rippchen and still had enough left over to make these low carb kimchi fritters. The thing I didn’t realize as I picked up the jar was; the word MILD on part of the label. I have never heard of “mild” kimchi so I had to go with flow and added some garlic chili paste. Assuming you know what you are doing, unlike myself, you will buy a spicy flavorful kimchi. I have it pictured with Asian Dipping Sauce because they go so well together and you can certainly use anything you would like or…just eat them plain. If you want the simplest dip…naw ya don’t. I didn’t plan it but I thought you might like to see a bit of chicken p**p that can often accompany a truly raw egg.
