What is Korean soybean sprouts?

Korean soybean sprouts, also known as Kongnamul muchim (콩나물 무침), is a popular side dish in Korea. Firstly, it’s popular because it’s affordable and easy to make. The preparation time is typically less than 10 minutes, and the ingredients are readily available, making it accessible even to foreigners.

What special ingredient do I need for soybean sprouts recipe?

Soybean sprout

Soybean sprouts, also known as kongnamul in Korean, are young sprouts that emerge from soybeans. They are typically pale yellow in color with thin stems and small leaves. Soybean sprouts are commonly used in Asian cuisine, especially in Korean, Chinese, and Japanese dishes. They have a mild, slightly nutty flavor and a crunchy texture. Soybean sprouts are nutritious and are a good source of protein, fiber, vitamins, and minerals. They are often used in salads, stir-fries, soups, and side dishes.

MSG salt..?!

There are no particularly special ingredients required for this dish. However, I recommend using Korean seasoned salt if available. It enhances the flavor and allows you to use less salt. Not only for Korean cuisine but also for everyday cooking, having it on hand could be beneficial. So, if you happen to visit a Korean mart, it would be a good idea to pick up a bottle.

Which foods are going well with Korean soybean sprouts?

Korean pork barbecue

In Korea, soybean sprouts are often enjoyed not only as a side dish with rice but also alongside samgyeopsal (pork belly) barbecue. Personally, I enjoy having soybean sprout namul with samgyeopsal or pork barbecue.

It’s common to make a simple bibimbap by combining soybean sprouts with rice and topped with a fried egg sunny side up. You can also put any vegetable; mostly carrot, onion, spinach, zucchini or/and meat whatever you want!

The reason why I post Korean soybean sprouts first.

Korean soybean sprouts recipe
I can’t wait to taste Korean soybean sprouts

First and foremost, it’s one of my 2-year-old daughter’s favorite side dishes. Many children are picky eaters when it comes to vegetables, but my daughter eats soybean sprout side dishes very well. So, as a mother, I wanted to share this dish with other moms who are worried about their children not eating vegetables. The nutty flavor of sesame oil and its savory taste is irresistible for kids.

Secondly, there was a request from my colleagues at work. Due to the influence of the Korean Wave한류, I’ve noticed quite a few foreign friends enjoying Korean food. Among various recipe requests, there was one for soybean sprout side dish. That’s why I decided to post about it today.

Lastly, it seemed like many foreigners associate Korean cuisine mostly with meat dishes such as samgyeopsal(pork belly), Korean barbecue, Korean fried chicken, Kalbi, and so on. It appeared that they were only familiar with kimchi as a vegetarian option from Korea. I wanted to break that stereotype and let them know that there are delicious vegetarian options in Korean cuisine too!
