I was craving something simple and comfy, which prompted me to make dduk soup tonight for dinner. It’s just dduk (Korean for pounded rice-ovals), napa cabbage, seaweed, silken tofu, cremini mushrooms, green onions, carrots, and swirled eggs. I just seasoned it with salt to taste and then topped each bowl off with sesame oil. The starchiness of the rice gave the broth a nicely thick mouth-feel.
The whole meal was quick to make. It took maybe half an hour. It’s an easy one-pot meal and I like that it has all of the food groups covered.
Sometimes, it’s nice to have a simple, slightly-bland meal to reset your palate after eating too much rich stuff.
