Gigantic snow puffs floated past my window for the better part of the day today. A perfect night for a bubbling cauldron of spicy soup to warm the body and everyone within a 5' radius. Mmm-mmm, kimchi jjigae!
Kimchi jjigae is a Korean soup that arrives bubbling wildly in a cauldron. Kimchi, zucchini, bits of meat (bulgogi leftovers?), squid, octopus, shrimp, silken tofu, onions, garlic, gochujang (Korean chile paste), more chile peppers, and broth make up this healthful soup. I order mine with a raw egg to add to the soup at the table.
