Sunday Lunches: Korean Banchan and Bibimbap
I love that Korean meals have a variety of sides, called banchan, that can be paired with rice; they include greens, vegetables, meats or tofu, pickles, and sauces. Once you get them together in a bowl, you have a full meal called bibimbap. It’s a satisfying, delicious, healthy meal to be made and had at leisure.
Bibimbap literally translates to mixed rice, and you can mix and match different ingredients to make your personalised bowl of this delicacy. The variety of banchan might look intimidating to make, but they’re quite easy, and most of them can be made beforehand.
