Korean pancakes, called bin dae duk, are unique in that they aren't made with flour.

How To Make Healthy Pickled Radish

Pickled radish has long been a staple side dish in Korean cuisine. It's sweet, sour, and crunchy, and is almost always a component of traditional sushi rolls (kim bap). It's also often served as a side dish to starch-heavy dishes like jja jjang myun, a mouthwatering dish of al dente noodles smothered in a sweet black bean sauce with sautéed chopped onions, carrots, sweet potatoes, and some type of ground meat.

Originally posted in September of 2009

Of the countless varieties of kim chi that are made in Korea, by far the most common and celebrated version is made with Napa cabbage.

Kim chi that's made with cabbage is loaded with indole-3-carbinol (I3C), a compound that is well recognized as a powerful cancer-fighting compound.

How To Make Korean Jello

Korean jello isn't sweet like most western dessert varieties. But yowsers, does it ever make for a silky smooth and healthy side dish to steaming bowls of rice and soup. To fully appreciate Korean jello, you have to drizzle on a blend of soy sauce, sesame oil, sesame seeds, and green onions. Add a pinch of chilli powder to the mix and you may just have a new favourite dish for family and friends.

Called doh toh ree mook in Korean, these lovely jello squares can be made with a few different primary ingredients, the healthiest of which are acorn powder and green bean powder - both are readily available in Korean grocery stores. No need to add gelatin - if you follow the instructions below, it will come out just like jello without sugar. Read more about How To Make Korean Jello

How to Make Your Own Soy Milk

Contrary to popular belief, soy can be a healthy food choice for the masses. In Korea and Japan, most households enjoy soy in many forms daily. The key is knowing how to prepare it for optimal digestion and nutritional benefit.

If you've never made your own soy milk, I highly recommend that you give it a try. Freshly made soy milk provides flavor and richness that I've yet to find in any store-bought variety. Plus, when you make your own, you can have an entire pitcher of rich, creamy soy milk for about 20 cents. Read more about How to Make Your Own Soy Milk

How to Make Korean-Style Steamed Eggs

My mom recently told me that this is the only Korean recipe that my older sister has ever asked her for. Quite understandable, as you won't find a lighter or fluffier egg dish anywhere.

Korean steamed eggs are similar to quiche, but without a crust, and did I mention that these eggs are amazingly light and fluffy? Read more about How to Make Korean-Style Steamed Eggs
