Vegan Budae Jjigae Recipe (Korean Army Stew)

Vegan Budae Jjigae Recipe (Korean Army Stew)

Korean army stew, or Budae Jjigae (부대찌개) is a popular Korean dish that pairs American meats with traditional Korean flavors. Food was incredibly scarce after the Korean War, so processed meats from American bases became a culinary staple.

Obviously this isn’t vegetarian or vegan-friendly, so I came up with a recipe that is super delicious, healthy, and doesn’t include any animal products!

Vegan Soondubu Jjigae Recipe – Korean Soft Tofu Stew

Vegan Soondubu Jjigae Recipe – Korean Soft Tofu Stew

Soondubu jjigae (순두부찌개) is a Korean soft tofu stew that I was first introduced to when I moved to Los Angeles. As someone who is obsessed with tofu and (healthy) comfort food, this dish was literally made for me. However, most soondubu includes meat and fish, so I wanted to create my own recipe for vegan soondubu. This soup is super easy to make and only requires one bowl! There’s so much flavor to enjoy here, and the best part is that you can make it as spicy or garlic-y as you want. I personally ate this served over rice, but it’s delicious on it’s own too.
