  1. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT! I made the kimchi using your amazing recipe, but since I want to try this recipe asap, I made the feta cheese using quick edgyveg recipe. Since I don’t have rice syrup at hand, I use palm nectar as the substitute. It turned out great!! it’s the right combination of creaminess, spiciness, tanginess and a touch of sweetness. So, so, so goooood! I split half using the rice cake and the other half with udon. They both taste divine, but with the udon, it’s to die for!

  2. I had made the original recipe off tik tok when it first came out and found it quite boring. This recipe takes it up ten levels! I love the spiciness, the texture from the rice cakes and the extra tang from the kimchi. I’d make it again for sure!

  3. This was amazing! I used Violife vegan feta, bok choy for the vegetables, a pinch of sugar for the rice syrup, and fresh udon noodles instead of rice cakes (because that’s what I had on hand). I chopped & added just the bottoms of the bok choy to the roasting dish, then stirred in the tops along with the noodles so they wouldn’t overcook. I skipped the gochugaru because I’m only moderately tolerant of spiciness. This is so easily customizable to your own tastes & pantry ingredients. I do a little dance with every bite!

  4. Absolutely love this recipe!! I didn’t have all the ingredients this time so I used quinoa gnocchi instead of rice cakes and Japanese yuzu honey instead of rice syrup 🙂 and I added some kimchi sauce too.

  5. I was nervous to try this because Id never bought some of these ingredients but it was so fun! I got everything at H Mart and made a DIY feta with tofu, miso, nutritional yeast and lemon. Definitely got a kick to it but also creamy and the rice cakes add some chew. Would make again for friends!

    All my housemates loved it! I would 1000% recommend it! It was so yummy and I am so excited to try more recipes!!
