Adapted from a Maangchi recipe
In addition to my main dishes of japchae and bulgogi, I made several Korean vegetable sides. I am new to Korean food, but I made some changes to the original recipe. I had bought some garlic chive stem (aka scapes) for a dinner that didn’t happen and I thought to uses them for my Korean dinner.

I was making Asian cabbage rolls and I wanted to serve a vegetable side dish. When I looked at how much Chinese chive stem I had bought, it seemed a bit scant for five people. I had also bought an English cucumber, that I had planned to pickle, but I decided instead to use it to stretch the chive stem.
