We are definitely not vegetarians, but there were no other options when we stopped for lunch at a Buddhist Temple in South Korea. Much to our surprise, the food was superb and as delicious as it was beautiful. Three tiny pancakes made with bean flour and artfully studded with forest treasures.
The artistry of presentation is exhibited in the rolled vegetables. The radish was died gently with beet juice and the spring rolls were single bite finger food better than the best sushi.
A chilled soup was topped with fresh, lightly pickle vegetables, plus wafers of lotus root. The lotus is a symbol for Buddha and the effect was certainly spiritual.
