Street food is one of the delights and joys of travel. Anyone who has been to South Korea knows that the land of BTS does not disappoint in this area. However, Korea isn’t the most vegetarian friendly country in the world. People who prefer a plant based diet may struggle to enjoy many dishes that seem vegetarian but, alas, are not. 

Marie spent many years in South Korea and considers it to be her second home. She loves the generous culture, the mountainous landscape and, of course, the food. Join Marie as she teaches you how to make her favorite street foods, all of which are 100% vegetarian and mostly vegan. You will learn a simple, protein rich pancake batter that will be your new favorite way to use up leftovers, how to create 2 kinds of dumpling fillings and 2 dipping sauces, as well as tips and tricks on how to turn all the recipes into healthier meals and snacks.
