Temple food refers to the food eaten daily at Buddhist temples. At Buddhist temples, everything is considered a part of practice. From growing vegetables to preparing the food. Monks and nuns are directly involved in the whole process. The Temple food is natural, healthy and also a part of Buddhist life. If you are vegetarian or cannot eat any meat because of your religion, you don’t have to worry about anything! Temple food is all from nature and vegetables! Korean temple food does not use any animal products except dairy products. Korean Buddhism forbids meat.
