Korean food is bold and savory, a gastronomic montage of flavors. While most Korean meals have a main dish, the meals are generally defined by banchan, the small plates of side dishes that accompany meals in a playful, mix-and-match manner. There is a world of spices that are used to make the banchan hot and spicy or tart and sweet. Banchan recipes can be simple and quick, like sliced scallions seasoned with chiles, or can range to more complex recipes like stuffed pancakes and meatballs, to the global favorite, pickled kimchi. Start experimenting with your favorite Korean spices and herbs when making these recipes or stir in one of our ready-to-use Asian seasoning blends for a delicious approach to Korean cuisine.
