sauteed dried chwinamul
Chwinamul (취나물) can refer to a number of leaf vegetables growing in the mountains and fields, which has heart-shaped serrated leaves and unique fragrance.
The word chwinamul in its strict sense refers only to chamchwi(참취, "edible aster"). However, there are about a hundred varieties of chwinamul that grow naturally in Korea, including sixty odd edible varieties. Among them, chamchwi(참취, "edible aster"), gomchwi(곰취, "Fischer's ragwort"), gaemichwi(개미취, "Tatarinow's aster"), miyeokchwi(미역취, "Asian goldenrod"), surichwi(수리취, "deltoid synurus"), matari(마타리, "golden lace"), and gaksichwi(각시취, "maiden saussurea") are the most eaten varieties.
