In this video I'm going to show you how to make Korean Rice Cake Soup - Vegetarian version! YAY! 10th FEB 2013 was Lunar New Year (Chinese new year) and Korea also celebrate! Normally Korean rice cake soup made with beef bone broth(sagol), beef bulgogi(Korean BBQ beef) on top, but I was thinking, why not make vegetarian version?! I met lots of new people last couple of weeks who are vegetarians(or even people eat seafood but no meat). I was very impressive and surprised that there are many many many vegetarians out there! - Living in deep south, it's hard to meet vegetarians. So I inspired from them, so thank you my new vegetarian friends!!
