Tteokbokki, a Korean dish, is typically known for its spicy flavor, but this recipe has a soy sauce base, giving it a different twist.



  • 20 pieces of rice cake for ‘tteokbokki’
  • Mushrooms (any variety works)
  • 1/2 cup of carrot
  • 1/2 cup of onion
  • 1/2 cup of cabbage
  • 1-2 cloves of garlic
  • Cooking oil


  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil

  2. Mix the sauce ingredients in a bowl.
  3. Cut the mushrooms, carrots, and onions into bite-sized pieces and mince the garlic.
  4. Heat oil in a pan, lightly sauté the minced garlic, then add the mushrooms, carrots, onions, and cabbage. Stir-fry until the onions become translucent.
