Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

Cook the rice

  • Rinse the rice.
In a small sauce pot, combine the rice and 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons [2¼ cups] water. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until the rice is tender and the liquid is absorbed, 15 to 20 minutes. Fluff with a fork, cover, and keep warm.
While the rice cooks, start the soup.

2

Cook the soup

  • Peel and thinly slice the onion.
  • Remove the stems from the shiitake mushrooms.
  • Cut the tofu into 1-inch cubes.
In a medium sauce pot over medium-high heat, warm 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil until hot but not smoking. Add the onion, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, 2 to 3 minutes [4 to 5 min]. Stir in the mushrooms, kimchi, and as much kimchi chile as you like and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.
Add the tofu, stir-fry blend, and 2 cups [4 cups] water. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook, without stirring, until the mushrooms soften, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.
While the soup simmers, prepare the cabbage.

3

Prep and cook the cabbage

  • Cut away any core from the cabbage; cut the cabbage crosswise into 1-inch-wide strips.
In a wok or large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 teaspoon [2 tsp] oil until hot but not smoking. Add the cabbage, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until just starting to soften, 2 to 3 minutes.
While the cabbage cooks, prepare the scallions.

4

Prep the garnish

  • Trim the root ends from the scallions; thinly slice the scallions on the diagonal.

Serve

Transfer the rice, soup, and cabbage to separate individual bowls; garnish the soup with the scallions and serve.
