  • Summary

    Kimchi can be made and eaten any time of the year, but I really crave it in the spring. In this recipe, the kimchi and assorted quick-pickled vegetables are the dominant flavors, making a bright-tasting, tangy bowl. Pickling chard stems is a great way to use them up—they’ll add bits of celery-like crunch, and using rainbow chard means lots of extra color, too. Furthermore, the pickled components and the sautéed chard both keep well, meaning that they can be made in advance or packed up as good leftovers. Let the toppings come to room temperature before serving, so that they don’t cool down the bowl drastically when you stir all the ingredients together.

    Ingredients

    • 2 bunches Swiss chard (1 to 1 1/2 pounds)
    • 1 big Kirby cucumber or half of a conventional cucumber
    • 1 medium carrot, peeled
    • 6 small radishes
    • 1 tablespoon sugar
    • 3/4 teaspoon plus 1 pinch of fine sea salt
    • 2 teaspoons rice vinegar
    • 1–2 tablespoons neutral-tasting oil
    • 1–2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
    • 1 tablespoon toasted or black sesame seeds
    • 5 cups cooked white or brown rice, or mixed grains, freshly cooked if skipping the rice crisping step
    • 2 (2-inch) squares toasted nori
    • 2 cups chopped Napa Cabbage or Bok Choy
    • Kimchi, preferably homemade
    • 1 avocado, peeled and sliced
    • Gochujang or Sriracha, for serving
