When I crave something spicy, I usually go for Korean Kimchi. A really home-made recipe, Kimchi has been sautéed in sesame oil and then simmer cooked with rice cakes, along with onion and scallions. The rice cakes turn out so soft and chewy and combined with the kimchi, this dish really satisfies your spicy craving.
- Rice Cakes (18 ounces)
- Kimchi (4 cups)
- Scallion (5 stalks, sliced into 1 inch pieces)
- Onion (1, sliced into thin pieces)
- Korean Red Hot Pepper Paste (2 tablespoons)
- Honey (2 tablespoons)
- Sesame Oil (2 tablespoons)
- Water (1 1/2 cup)
