Sauté your garlic in oil for 30 seconds and then add in your sauce ingredients: soy, sugar, gochujang, gochugaru, and water.
Let the sauce thicken and the sugar dissolve.
Cook rice cakes beforehand according to package instructions - I typically boil mine in hot water for about 3 minutes.
Once the rice cakes are cooked, add them into the sauce. Then you're done!
You can also add veggies to this recipe as well after the garlic and before you add the sauce in!
