A balanced combination of western vegetables and korean cuisine

Various western vegetables, which are unfamiliar to us, have become part of the common ingredients in daily table settings for a harmonious feast filled with gastronomic delights. The western vegetables that have naturally grown in our soil include cabbages, asparagus, parsley, and kohlrabi in the leaf vegetable group, bell peppers, cauliflowers, and broccolis in the fruit/flower vegetable group, and beets and radishes in the root vegetable group. There are almost 60 different kinds and they are now easy to find. They are also used to explore a variety of personalized tastes and dishes. The combination of Korean cuisine and western vegetables definitely reigns supreme.

Colorful Beet Soup
Red beets, also known for their crunchy texture and naturally sweet taste, are vibrant in color and packed with essential nutrients, such as Vitamin A, potassium, and fibers. Stir-fry beets with onions and butter, and add water to cook thoroughly. Then, grind in a mixer. Add cream to make a soup for a hearty breakfast.
Seasoned Cilantro
Due to cilantro’s strong flavors, not all people are accustomed to its taste. However, it turns into a unique seasoned green when incorporated with the Korean-style seasoning sauce. Mix your favorite fresh greens, such as wild chives, Codonopsis lanceolata, and chives, with cilantro and add the sauce prepared with hot pepper powder, vinegar, and sugar. This appetizer filled with seasoned greens is also great for wraps with grilled meat.
Kohlrabi and Pine Nut Dumplings
Kohlrabi, also known for being the hybrid of a cabbage and a turnip, is a great ingredient for healthy meals. It is rich in moisture and Vitamin C. Cut a kohlrabi in the shape of a half moon and slice as thinly as possible. Add roasted pine nuts and apply egg white on the inner edge of the kohlrabi slices. Then, fold in half to make triangle shapes, and pan-fry with oil.
Basil Pesto Noodles
Basil originated from India and it is commonly used as a home remedy for headache relief. It is used fresh by picking the leaves from it’s stems. Basic Pesto is a green sauce prepared with olive oil, garlic, and cheese, among others, and filled with flavors that enhance the taste of various western dishes.
