“This recipe is inspired by Maangchi’s Doenjangguk (Korean soup), I added canned white beans and a few slices of rice cakes so it’s more filling and hearty. You can use firm tofu and add veggies to your liking. Korean fermented bean paste (Doenjang) and gochujang can be found in Asian grocery stores. #stayhomekeepcooking”
