Cucumber Kimchi (Low-FODMAP ish)

For those eating low-FODMAP, note that the recipe includes gochugaru, which hasn’t been lab tested for FODMAPs and is spicy, if that bothers you. I personally did not have any reaction to gochugaru even in large amounts, but I would definitely recommend waiting until after you are done with your elimination/re-challenge before trying this uncertain ingredient and seeing for yourself.
