BuChu Oi MuChim is made with garlic chives and cucumbers. This dish is a little spicy and sour and it is easy and simple to make. Try it someday with either Korean food or western food.
Yield: 2 Servings
Short Korean Lesson
- BuChu (부추) = Garlic Chives
- Oi (오이) = Cucumber
- 1 Handful Garlic Chives
- ⅓ Cucumber
- ¼ Onion
- 2½ tsp Red Pepper Powder
- ½ Tbsp Fish Sauce
- ½ Tbsp Apple Vinegar
- ½ tsp Sugar
- ½ tsp Sesame Oil
- 1 tsp Sesame Seeds
Prepare 1 handful of garlic chives. Remove any bad parts and then wash them. Cut the garlic chives into 2 inch pieces.
Cut ⅓ of a cucumber into quarter inch pieces.
Cut ¼ of an onion thinly.
In a bowl, add the garlic chives, cucumbers, and the onion.
Add 2½ tsp of red pepper powder, ½ Tbsp of fish sauce, ½ Tbsp of apple vinegar, ½ tsp of sugar, ½ tsp of sesame oil, and 1 tsp of sesame seeds. If you like the fish sauce, you can substitute salt water. I like sour side dishes, so it is a little sour, so you might want to adjust the amount of vinegar.
Mix all of the ingredients together.
It is done. It was very simple, right? Thank you!
