Do you like Kimchi? I do. I wouldn’t say it’s my “favourite” Korean dish, but it somehow engineered my gene that I cannot live without it!

Since you visited my blog, I will safely assume that you already know something about Kimchi.

Kimchi is a very versatile ingredient. Particularly in recent times, fusionisaton of Kimchi has been very popular.

Just to name a few, Kimchi taco, Kimchi omelet and Kimchi quesadillas are already common names in people’s dining life. So today I would like to introduce how I enjoy Kimchi in my home by combining it with spaghetti.

Ingredients for Kimchi Spaghetti, 6 servings

Main

  • 500g spaghetti or other pasta
  • 160g kimchi
  • 80g onion
  • 400g bacon
  • 120g button mushrooms
  • 40g butter
  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp gochujang (Korean chili paste)
  • Pinch of fine sea salt

Garnish

  • mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • roasted sesame seeds
  • green onion, thinly sliced

How to Make Kimchi Spaghetti with Bacon

1. Prepare main ingredients. Finely chop Kimchi, onion, bacon. Thin slice the mushroom.

2. Boil some water in a pot and add a dash of salt. Once it starts to boil add the spaghetti.

3. While the spaghetti is getting ready, get other ingredients ready. Heat the wok on high heat and melt the butter. Once the butter is melted, add the mushrooms and stir it well until cooked. When the mushrooms are cooked, take them out and put them onto a plate.

4. Add the bacon in an emptied wok and stir it until cooked. Add the onion. Cook further until the bacon and onion crisps. Once they are cooked, take them out and put them onto a separate plate.

5. Add the kimchi in an emptied wok and stir it until cooked. (Add some vegetable oil if required). Once the Kimchi is cooked, add the mushroom from step 3 and stir them together for 30 seconds. Then reduce the heat to medium to low.

7. Add the bacon (from step 4), the soy sauce and the gochujang on the spaghetti. Mix them all thoroughly.

8. Serve the Kimchi spaghetti on a plate and garnish with your preferred ingredients. (I used mozzarella cheese, sesame seeds and spring onion. I was tempted to add some sesame oil too but I thought that could overpower the taste of the butter I added earlier.)

  1. I found some kimch in the back of my frig. that was a little to strong, and this was the perfect recipe to use it in. The bacon, mushrooms and butter were the perfect combo for the extra tangy kimchi. Can’t wait to make it again!

  2. Finally made this tonight, and it was SO good. I’m used to cooking with Korean ingredients but this was insanely delicious and was such a wonderful surprise. I didn’t expect it to have such depth. I did add the splash of sesame oil at the end and I didn’t regret it!

  3. Hi chef Sue! I’ve been trying all you wonderful dishes for the past two weeks now! My brother loves all of your recipes and I love it too 🙂 I’m so excited to cook this kimchi spaghetti!! Cooking became a new “hobby” to me ever since I saw his site. Thank you so much. God bless 🙂

  4. This looks great, I’m going to try this. I grew up in a mixed Korean/White family, so I will each kimchi as a side with everything, including spaghetti, but I’ve never fixed it all together like this.

  5. I was spying over here for ways to sue up my tub of kim chi as it is a relatively new ingredient in my repertoire. I’ve never thought of using kim chi with pasta! Gah! Lunch may never be the same again.

  6. Kimchi spaghetti and with bacon? Oh my! Now that is such a genius idea! I love, love kimchi…Beautiful dish and sooo delicious. I will cook this soon, because my mouth is already watering reading your recipe and looking at those pictures. Yumilicious!!!!
