Doenjang Jjigae (Korean Fermented Bean Paste Stew)

Doenjang jjigae is one of Korea’s most classic comfort foods. It’s easy to make and is a meal unto itself, loaded with proteins and vegetables—all you need is some rice and maybe some kimchi on the side. This recipe loads the rich, funky broth up with tofu and clams, while onions, scallions, mushrooms, summer squash, and more make for a hearty array of vegetables. Remember, though, that there are many ways to make this dish, and you can easily vary it by changing the protein (try some fish or beef) or using a different combination of vegetables (potatoes, spinach, cabbage, and Swiss chard are all good).
