"Growing up, my Korean grandmother would make this dish regularly. It’s been 6 years since she’s passed and not a day goes by where I don’t miss her cooking. I reminisced and used my best memories to recreate a vegan version of this comforting stew. Don’t let its red color fool you, this dish is not as spicy as it looks!"
