I received a copy of Korean Paleo to do an unbiased review on. I am and was excited because I really like Korean food but don’t get to eat it very often. My hope is that with my own book of extra healthy Korean recipes (Korean food is pretty health to begin with), I will make more Korean dishes.
So what is Korean paleo you ask? Well the paleo diet means no grains, no potatoes, no sugar, and no dairy. The biggest difference then from regular Korean cooking is that this cookbook does not use any rice. The rice Jean Choi recommends is cauliflower rice, which is one of my favorite options now anyway.
Korean cooking includes a lot of vegetables which of course is good for all of us. And Koreans are famous for kimchi, a probiotic fermented cabbage dish. So if you want to be healthier in the next months, learn to cook some Korean paleo dishes.
Korean Paleo contains 80 recipes, most of which are traditional and authentic in flavor. Favorites like Bibimbap, Bulgogi, and Kimchi are in this book and some dishes I have never heard of before. One of favorite chapters is the last one, Korean Kitchen Must-Haves. It includes kimchi, Gochujang (Korean Red Chili Paste), Miso Paste, Cauliflower Sticky Rice, and two different dipping sauce recipes. She also includes a few pages in this section of ingredients you will need to have on hand to make these recipes, things like mung bean sprouts, Korean radish, dried seaweed, coconut aminos and other necessary ingredients.
I tried the Bulgogi recipe, the Korean BBQ Beef, a recipe I have had before and really like. This came out really delicious and I can recommend it. I have permission to share it with you.
And the next recipe I want to try? Kkwabaegi, the twisted sugar doughnuts. Jean’s recipe uses coconut flour and psyllium husk, which makes me think it will come out with the right texture. I will update this post after I try it and let you know how I like them.
