This Broccoli Namul recipe is ridiculously easy to make but extremely tasty and addictive. Once you start eating it, you cannot stop! Namul is a Korean word that refers to vegetables that are seasoned with herbs. For example, spring vegetables are called Bom-namul.
So for this dish, I use Broccoli and cook in this Namul style, so I call it Broccoli Namul. Fun fact: on the day of Daeboreum, the first full moon of the year, Koreans eat Boreum-namul with five-grain rice.
This is a perfect side dish that goes with just about anything. You can pair it with chicken, steak, grilled fish, etc. And the nice thing is, it’s very easy to make!
It’s so addictive, that you will struggle to avoid eating it all before you serve it to the table. You just can’t stop tasting it while you are making it. So be sure to practice self-control and have a strong mind and try the challenge of keeping this dish around until you actually sit down to eat your meal with others. 😉
