Springy, delectably chewy rice cakes (or “tteok”) are a comfort food staple in Korea. For tonight’s exciting dish, we’re combining them with carrots and yu choy—sautéed for just a few minutes, to highlight their fresh flavors. We’re bringing it all together with a savory soy and black bean-based sauce, rounded out with a bit of hot red chile paste and cooling crème fraîche. A soft-boiled egg tops off each bowl with plenty of satisfying richness.
