- Roast the dried seaweed sheets over a burner (a few seconds on each side, until it changes from dark green/black to light greenish) or put into a toaster oven. Slice the roasted seaweed into thin strips as well, or crush with your hand. Put into a serving dish.
- Boil the soup stock (either the beef bone or pre-made beef or chicken stock) with anchovy powder and garlic.
- Add rice cakes, dumplings and salt and bring to a boil. Cook on medium heat for about 15 minutes or until the dumplings start floating - add chopped green onion and turn the heat off.
- For each serving, get a large bowl. Scoop up some soup with enough rice cakes and dumplings, garnish with yellow and white egg threads and some more chopped green onions. Serve the roasted seaweed at the table for people to individually add into their bowl throughout the meal.
