For over 1,700 years, in Buddhist temples across Korea, monks and nuns have prepared meals using only fresh, seasonal vegetables in accordance with Buddhist principles. Today, Korean temple food, the original “slow food,” has a growing international following appreciative of the healthy and simple yet flavorful fare.
