Will kimchi work with just plain green cabbage, or does it have to be napa cabbage?

    Sure. If you look it up you'll even find Korean recipes that call for "Western Cabbage"

    of course it will.

    Napa cabbage may be the cabbage that grew in Asian countries when kimchi was invented but cabbage is cabbage.

    Either is fine.

    Source(s): I had a Korean roommate in college that ate kimchi daily.

  • Kimchi will work with green cabbage as well as Napa...but do not eat too much, it is not good for your health. Just eat a little bit at a time so you will die slowly. K?

      That's not true. Kimchi is a fermented food that is very good for health. I have been eating it for many years. I just had never seen it made with our western style cabbage before.

    Kimchi will work with any vegetables. Korean Kimchi is not exclusively made with cabbage although that is the most common. There are dozens of varieties of Kimchi made with all sorts of vegetables such as radishes, ginger, garlic, bamboo shoots, onions, various types of roots, beets, and many others. I've even had one made with tomato although I didn't think it was good.
