The Vegan 8 Korean | Vegan food is good for your Seoul! :.

 

One of my goals for this year is to get comfortable with making Korean Cuisine. I worked for Korean families for a number of years (I managed and baked in a Korean-owned Cappuccino Bar in my late 20s, early 30s) and they just loved feeding me.  As a result of this experience I have developed a taste for Korean flavours. I’ve recently started making my own kimchi (as well as a number of other fermented foods) , but aside from simple dishes like rice with kimchi and veggies with roasted seaweed and kimchi my Korean cooking repetoire is pretty limited.

The blog I’ve linked above is a good resource for me as it’s vegan and full of ideas for fairly simple dishes, which is perfect for a beginner like myself. Some of the ingredients are things which I’m unable to eat due to food sensitivities (soy for example), but I can work around that and use alternate flavor and protein sources.

Tonight I will make an attempt at making the Ssam-Bap recipe from the above site. I adore the idea of using cabbage almost like a cross between a taco and a cabbage roll. As I can’t digest gluten properly, I’m always looking for bread replacement ideas and I adore cabbage.

About couleewind

I'm a 41 year old woman from a small city in Alberta Canada. I am whimsical and bitter-sweet and am essentially a marshmallow in a porcupine suit. I collect Pez dispensers and books and I love to talk, although I do tend to be fairly introspective. The sort of content which you will find here will vary depending on the day, my mood and what’s going on in my world or of interest to me. I mainly blog as method of reflecting on my day and on my life at the time of the post. I have a history of struggling with social anxiety and depression, as well as type two diabetes, and through living a plant-based, wholistically centered life I've made great strides in these areas. This blog is meant to reflect where I'm at in my life, and how I'm moving toward creating the life I see myself having in my dreams. I will often discuss, whole foods, meditation, personal growth and my day to day struggles and victories. I am also a highschool drop out who is returning to school at age 42, and a person who lives on a very tight fixed income currently, this will also be reflected in my blog.
