You might be thinking that rice cakes, stir fry, and vegan cheese doesn’t sound appealing, BUT TRUST ME, this dish is the perfect combination of texture and flavors. Plus, it is super easy and quick to prepare! 

WHAT ARE KOREAN RICE CAKES?

One thing they are NOT is those big round dry rice cakes you’re used to seeing at your local grocery store. (That might not be so good in a stir fry)

Korean rice cakes are oval-shaped and found in the refrigerator section of your local Asian Store. Once cooked, they turn into this soft, chewy texture that pairs perfectly in stir-fries! There are different varieties, but the most common type of Korean Rice cake is called “Tteokppoki (pronounced duck-bo-key)” 

 

WHAT’S IN THIS STIR FRIED RICE CAKE RECIPE?

The main ingredient of this recipe is the Korean rice cakes (obviously); however, the following elements in this dish make this recipe super delicious.

  • Vegan Mozzarella Cheese: Adding mozzarella to a recipe like this is very common. Koreans add mozzarella cheese to their corn, to their rice cake stir-fries, and a few other dishes.
  • Gochujang: Gochujang is a thick, spicy red chili paste made up of glutinous rice, fermented soybeans, salt, and sometimes sweeteners. This sauce is what brings this dish together. It can be found online or at your local Asian Store.
  • Bok Choy: Bok Choy is a staple in many Asian recipes like my Spicy Noodle Soup Dish. It has the perfect crunchy texture, and it’s filled with health benefits like calcium!

HOW TO MAKE RICE CAKE STIR FRY?

Mix Vegetables with Sauce

  • First, add the stir fry sauce ingredients to a white bowl and mix together
  • Then you are going to add your bok choy and other vegetables in a separate mixing bowl.
  • Pour your sauce onto the vegetables.
  • Mix the sauce and vegetables together until well combined.

COOK YOUR RICE CAKES

  • Rinse your rice cakes and set aside.
  • Place a pan on medium heat and cook the vegetables.
  • Next, add the onions and rice cakes to your pan and stir together with the vegetables and sauce.
  • Sprinkle vegan mozzarella cheese on top.
  • Let the cheese melt over the heat. Once it’s melted remove from heat and serve.

Health Benefits

The bok choy in this rice cake recipe adds tremendous benefits! 


One cup of bok choy contains about 26 percent of the recommended daily intake of vitamin K1, a fat-soluble vitamin most well-known for the important role it plays in blood clotting and bone metabolism.  Vitamin K1 is also a known Alzehimer’s disease preventive by helping to limit neuron damage in your brain.
