My amazing roomie Liz finished reheating her grandma's left over mung bean pancakes in the oven, just as I rolled back in from a run. The bindae duks (Korean) were quite hearty - and vegan - combination of sautéed onion, kim chee and garlic mixed in to a batter of mung beans, soaked and blended with water in to paste. Liz's ad hoc savory sauce - of tamari, lemon juice, rice vinegar, freshly grated ginger and sriracha chili sauce with a pinch of sugar and sesame seeds - made these pancakes irresistible. Liz told me, "my grandmother is such a good cook. She's awesome." And from what I can tell, she is absolutely right.
