Banchan aka side dish, and to begin our collection, here are a few Korean side dishes, that along with this beautiful crunchy broccoli salad comes up in mere minutes.

Squid Jerky

Drinks that can be whipped up in 5 minutes:

‘Otai, Tropical Drink

Blueberry Kale Smoothie, my favorite!

Even Rice Cakes can be made in just 10 minutes.  {Not bad for something that used to take hours}!

To make this beautifully crunchy and flavorful Broccoli Salad, you don’t even need 10 whole minutes.  You’re just 5 minutes away from a unique salad that can be eaten as is or tumbled into Bibimbap!

Korean Broccoli Side Dish {Banchan}

Broccoli Salad, A Korean Banchan
  • 1 Head Broccoli, cut into Florets

  • 1 tb Sesame Oil
  • 1 tb Sesame Seeds

  1. Boil your water and salt it well.
  2. Toss in your florets and cook for no longer than 3 minutes.
