Easily one of the most popular dishes in Korea, I became familiar with Subdubu Jjigae after watching Itaewon Class, one of my favorite K-dramas. Between the melt in your mouth tofu, inviting light red color, and mesmerizing sizzle, what’s not to love?

I’ve made a vegetarian version of Sundubu Jjigae that gets a rich, savory flavor from gochujang (Korean chili paste), gochugaru (Korean chili powder), kimchi, and doenjang (Korean fermented soybean paste). Try it as a quick weeknight dinner and you’ll feel like you’re inside your favorite K-drama!

Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Heat up your Korean stone bowl (dolsot) or saucepan on medium heat and add in vegetable oil and sesame oil. Sauté garlic and onion for 2-3 minutes until they become transparent.

  2. Add in the gochujang, gochugaru, sugar, salt, vegan kimchi, and soy sauce. Sauté for 1-2 minutes until fragrant.

  3. Add in the vegetable stock and let it come up to a simmer. In a small bowl, combine the doenjang with a few spoons of the hot broth. Mix it until smooth and add it into the pot.

  4. Add in the tofu as well, careful not to splatter the stock everywhere. Cover your pot and let it simmer for 3-5 minutes until the tofu softens.

  5. Add in the cabbage and enoki mushrooms on top, gently pushing them down so they are submerged. Let this simmer covered for another 2-3 minutes.
  6. Turn off the heat and garnish with sliced green onions and toasted sesame seeds. Serve with rice and vegan kimchi and enjoy!

Recipe Notes
  • Add more/less gochugaru (korean chili flakes) to increase/decrease the spiciness of the stew.
