Daetongbap is unfortunately hard to come by outside of Damyang, South Korea. But worry not - there are tons of equally delicious, hearty, and healthy recipes to get you through winter.
Growing up in Canada's frigid prairies (arctic winds, anyone?) I became well-versed in surviving winter. Although watching the leaves and the snow start to fall was always a sad time for me (winter is my least favourite season), I did take comfort in knowing that rich and hearty food + wooly jumpers/sweat pant season was also coming up.
This year my partner and I purchased a food processor which has opened up a world yummy food opportunities for us. I've always loved rich Italian food as a winter staple... but for ethical purposes (and dietary purposes - dairy and I don't function well together) have been trying to eat more plant-based recipes. As it turns out, the two aren't mutually exclusive. There are ways to make creamy, vegetable-based pasta sauces using no dairy at all! YES!
Oh She Glows and Post Punk Kitchen have been my favourite resources for these sorts of recipes lately. This vegan fettuccine alfredo, for example, is made with deliciously creamy cauliflower. It's so yummy that it's easy to forget it's actually good for you!
These vegan lasagna rolls (I made them with cannelloni) are also super delicious and packed full of nutrients. Plus - who could say no to cashew cream?!
I haven't tried this smoky butternut squash shell pasta yet, but it's next on the list. :)
I hope you're able to try some of these (and if so, love them as much as I do!).
