    Great use for some soft tofu I accidentally bought at our Korean market. I used 2 heaping tablespoons of korean pepper paste from a huge jar I bought a while ago and omitted the egg because of the eggs I ate for breakfast, although that would be really authentic according to the lunchcounter lady. - 8/9/09

    Tasty but not filling at all. I also don't think this recipe is very authentic. - 3/23/09

    Thanks for your feedback. This recipe is from a Korean friend of mine. I lived in Korea for a year and ate this dish almost every single day. This is a vegetarian version. An "authentic" would have a couple of clams or oysters in the bottom, but I don't include those anymore.
