Zucchini are coming into season in California now, and I received a medium-sized one in my community-supported agriculture package last week.

I could have again made 호박전 hobak jeon (zucchini pancake), which is always tasty. Another option was 궁중 떡볶이 gungjung tteokbokki, the royal ancestor of the spicy, warm 떡볶이 tteokbokki (rice cake stew).

Yet hobak bokkeum is a simple dish and once you make it, you can either serve it on the spot in banchan form, or you can set it aside and put it into your bibimbap.

The zucchini I used here was a little fat for bibimbap but it work well as a typical American side dish.

Hobak bokkeum 호박볶음

1 medium zucchini (about 10–12 ounces)
1 tablespoon grapeseed, rice bran or high-heat oil (recommend: non-GMO)

2 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon sesame seeds (optional)

Directions

1. Slice zucchini thin.

2. Heat a pan with the grapeseed oil over medium high heat.

4. Add the zucchini to the skillet, and cook for one to two minutes.

5. Add the sauce and cook for one to two more minutes, stirring well until the zucchini is softened and turns translucent.

6. Drizzle with sesame oil before serving.
