Kimchi is a good source of folate which is important in pregnancy to reduce the risk of central neural tube defects, potassium that helps control the body’s balance of fluids and calcium which is important for muscle contractions as well as strong teeth and bones.
Our recipes do not contain garlic, onion, nor animal products.
We recommend using “old” kimchi - Kimchi that has been fermented for long enough to give an extra sour taste.

Not seen in the video, but, first, need to make the creamy-sauce: throw-in cashew nuts, almond milk, nutritional yeast, salt, and black pepper into a blender and blend until it becomes watery.
Precook the Pin Xin’s homemade noodle (130g) for 2 minutes in boiling water.
Preheat the frying pan on medium-high heat, then apply the sesame seeds oil around the pan.
First, add in the mushroom and cook for 10 seconds.
