I recently remade my tteokguk video and updated the recipe. Tteokguk is a dish that Koreans traditionally eat on New Year’s day, and yes, I made some for my family on January 1st 2014! I will make it again on Lunar New Year’s Day which falls on January 31st this year.
When I posted the video I asked my viewers if their culture had any special dishes for New Years’ day and many people answered! I learned a lot from them. Interestingly, many cultures eat beans because they believe beans will bring them prosperity. No matter where we live in the world, it seem like one thing we have in common is that New year’s day we give good wishes for good health and prosperity.
