Korean cuisine plays on a symphony of flavors: from soothing and mild to piquant and fiery. Garlic, chilies, ginger, sesame seeds, and sesame oil are the basics of which many Korean dishes take their cue. Using these ingredients, along with a variety of fresh vegetables and wholesome grains, you can make a host of traditional Korean dishes. With the addition of several Korean ingredients now available in many large supermarkets, you can prepare a true Korean feast.
These recipes have been handed down through generations of Korean cooks and adapted for meatless eating with creative vegetarian substitutions for mean, poultry, and fish.
