Korean Beanshoots/Carrot Side Dish (Namul)

Posted January 9th, 2009 in Food 5 Comments »


The outside is like an oven cooking some hot food, and sunshine is spiky…  I couldn’t touch the handle of my car and had to wear gloves (not joking!) otherwise my hands get burned :p  Everything seem to be melting…

A summer day like this, I just need to eat lots of veggies.  Lots of them!  (and watermelon)  I decided to make namul as a side dish for grilled fish tonight.  I don’t feel like eating rice or pasta… outside is still bright and over 35 degrees!

This side dish Namul is a kind of Korean food, but I didn’t follow the traditional Korean recipe.  This dish can be eaten just as a salad, or accompaniment to some meat dish.  Alternatively you can add some more vegetables or seaweed.  Great source of vitamin and fiber 🙂


  • Carrots
  • Beansprouts
  • Spring Onions
  • Minced Garlic
  • Sesame Oil
  • Salt
  1. Cut carrot into matchsticks shape.  Branch in the hot water until just cooked.
  2. Branch beansprouts.
  3. Chop spring onion.
  4. Mix them in a bowl.  Season with salt, sesame oil and minced garlic to your taste.  (for one carrot, one or two handful of beansprouts and few bunches of spring onion = 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 sesame oil and 1~2 stp garlic.)

    I heard that Australian summers are very very hot and skin cancer is common. 気をつけて!

    I’m wearing gloves these days too…but because it’s so cold in Tokyo now!
