This receipe was passed down from my great grandparents to my parents. Every year, especially during the Korean New Year we make this at home with my family. Whether you're a vegetarian or carnivore, there are variety of ingredients you can add or replace in this receipe. Also, if you prefer to fry, steam or add it in soups. It's a great way to get all the family together, especially the kids will enjoy making it. Can get bit messy, but that's half the fun. The other is sampling along the way. Submitted by: "Julie Rhee"
