Recipe

Korean flavors are some of the best out there in my opinion. I just love the combination of savory, sweet, and umami - I mean what could be better. And while these flavor combinations are usually reserved for meats, they work just as well with plant based dishes like these Korean lentils. Made with quick cooking red lentils, the whole dish is ready in about 15 minutes. Served with some rice and veggies, it's a meatless meal you will make again and again.
