Korean dishes, some traditional and some reimagined, from the home cook and storyteller behind @thekoreanvegan on TikTok The single most frequent question Joanne Lee Molinaro gets asked is "How can you be vegan and Korean?" Korean cooking is, after all, synonymous with fish sauce and barbecue. And although grilled meat is indeed prevalent in some Korean food, the ingred Korean dishes, some traditional and some reimagined, from the home cook and storyteller behind @thekoreanvegan on TikTok The single most frequent question Joanne Lee Molinaro gets asked is "How can you be vegan and Korean?" Korean cooking is, after all, synonymous with fish sauce and barbecue. And although grilled meat is indeed prevalent in some Korean food, the ingredients that filled out the bapsangs of Joanne's childhood--doenjang (fermented soybean paste), gochujang (chili sauce), dashima (seaweed), and more--are fully plant-based, unbelievably flavorful, and totally Korean. In her debut cookbook, Joanne shares recipes and narrative snapshots of the food that shaped her family history. Some of the recipes come straight from her childhood: Jjajangmyun, the rich Korean-Chinese black bean noodles she ate on birthdays, or the humble Gamja Guk, a potato-and-leek soup her father makes. Some pay homage: Chocolate Sweet Potato Cake is an ode to the two foods that saved her mother's life, Kale & Ramen Salad with noodle "croutons" and a dressing akin to ramen broth. With the intimate storytelling and stunning photography she's become known for on social media, The Korean Vegan Cookbook celebrates how deeply food and family shape our identity.

    Beautiful Book I love the pictures in this book and the cover. I haven’t tried any of the recipes yet but I finished reading the stories and I cried a couple of times. I honestly used to see food as just something that you need for survival. But now I understand how food is more than that. It is a way to connect with your roots, with your family, friends and just people in general. How a meal can transport you to another country, how it can make you understand where someone comes from.

Furthermore, I realized how we sometimes take our parents for granted. Ugh I’m getting emotional again 🥺🥺

    This book is amazing! The recipes all sound delicious! I cannot wait to start cooking from this masterpiece. I was initially worried that there would be lots of hard to find ingredients but it’s really not that bad. Only 1 or 2 that I think I will have trouble finding. But most of the recipes are quite accessible. Everything looks delicious!! Especially all the kimchi’s!! Plus the amazing stories throughout the book!

    This looks amazing and mostly doable. Minus one star though for assuming everyone has an Asian grocer nearby. The nearest place to that would have all the Korean specific ingredients is nearly 2 hours away from me.

    This is such a gorgeous, thoughtful, and utterly appetizing book. As a regular at my neighborhood veg-friendly Korean restaurant in Seattle, I am no stranger to the ingredients and the savory dishes that are found in these pages, and I'm thrilled to be able to veganize and re-create them at home. The breads and desserts sections were particularly exciting, because it's rare that I can walk into a bakery and buy whatever I want!

The breads and desserts sections were particularly exciting, because it's rare that I can walk into a bakery and buy whatever I want! However, I had to take away a star because I found the light brown text on the white pages -- which is used for the headnotes for every recipe -- SO hard to read. I'm a relatively young person with 20/20 vision, so I'm surprised no one else had this issue during the publishing process. I appreciate the aesthetic that is carried throughout the book, but legibility and accessibility have to come first!

    More than a cookbook. It is the story of a family, a love story, a story of connection and of Korean food. Beautifully photographed
