Cheesy Tteokbokki (Korean Rice Cakes)

These vegan cheesy Korean rice cakes are chewy, cheesy, and SO satisfying to eat!

Both the refrigerated or the dry kind work well for this recipe, just make sure to soak the latter for several hours beforehand, to ensure that they cook fully.

You can find them at most Asian markets (if you’re not lucky enough to live in South Korea of course).

These go well with a side of baked tofu and a salad, but they also taste amazing on their own. Plus, they’re a nice alternative to the usual (equally delicious!) spicy rice cake recipes.
