Happy Good Friday everyone! So, today, I was inspired by @thefeedfeed and @theflouredkitchen (and several others of you) to try my hand at making Hot Cross Buns. Prior to a couple days ago, I had no idea they were a food, as opposed to a nursery rhyme! Well, here’s not only a vegan version, but a Korean Vegan version! I added a bit of matcha to the crosses and stuffed these babies with espresso red bean paste (“paht”). I also want to try making some matzo ball soup, soon! This is one of the reasons I love IG—scrolling through my feed is daily foodspiration and education!

I absolutely love the smell of gochugaru. It reminds me of "kimchi days" growing up. My grandmas, mom, and aunts would be covered in red up to their elbows and the whole house would smell of spice and fresh cabbage. This is a brine for my perilla leaves--made of soy sauce, sugar, chili peppers, garlic, spring onions, sesame oil, and of course, gochugaru. They are pickling as I write and I cannot wait to dig into them tomorrow!

So, in case you missed it on my Instastory, I made sandwiches last night for dinner, using an ingredient I've been reading up on a lot lately: HUMMUS. I know, it's not a new thing, but I never realized how good it is for you! Hummus is made out of garbanzo beans, and studies have proven over and over again that beans are among the heart healthiest foods on the planet--they lower cholesterol and in so doing, lower the risk of the number 1 killer on earth: heart disease. And hummus tastes frakking amazing! So I mixed it with a little soy sauce and gochujang, slathered it all over my Cauliflower steaks, which I then dredged in some almond meal, and baked them till they were golden brown and crunchy. [Yes. Drooling is an entirely acceptable response.] I then piled my sandwich with as many veggies as I could fit and this beauty was born. Another favorite in the Korean Vegan household. What do you like in your meatless sandwiches? What's your favorite flavor of hummus?? Shout out to @bluemooseofboulder for making the best hummus my BF and I have ever eaten and providing yet another reason to move to Boulder!! And thank you to @nocrumbsleft for putting them on my radar!!

It’s my birthday this Monday, but because I’ll be at work that day, my mom invited me over today for some birthday brunch! This is a very typical Korean meal, including seaweed soup, rice, and banchan. Seaweed soup is a traditional soup served on birthdays (you can learn more about it on my blog). My mom’s version was delicious. But the real star of the meal was her dumplings! So delicate and flavorful, I could eat a hundred of them!! Yesterday, I was thinking about how mothers and grandmothers show their love by not only serving/making food for their loved ones, but by serving them meat. Meat, as you might have guessed, is the most expensive luxurious food item in Korea. When i was growing up, my grandmother would take an entire chicken, remove all the bones, and shred all the meat and put it on a plate for me on my brother. I was a little sad that my choice to go vegan has taken that expression of love away from my mother, but, this picture—and the work that went into it—says a thousand words, as well as three.
