bibim guksu, easy vegetarian recipe, go chu jang, gochugaru, Kim chi, Korean cold noodles, sesame oil, udon noodles, vegetarian noodle recipe
So this spicy cold noodle thing… I’m not over it apparently. This is also easy, yummy and super quick. This is like the noodle equivalent of bibimbap.
Ingredients for 2 people
Thin wheat noodles, called ‘somyeon’ noodles or thin udon noodles in a pinch
(I used 2 bunches of thin udon noodles)
3/4 cup to 1 cup kim chi
6 green onion, chopped
1 carrot, julienned
other vegetables such as spinach, cucumber
2 eggs, hard boiled or fried (optional)
sesame seeds for garnish
for the sauce
1-2 tbs go chu jang
2 tsp soy sauce
1-2 tbs rice vinegar
1-2 tsp sesame oil
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp honey (optional)
1 tsp sesame seeds
1 clove garlic minced
Korean red pepper flakes (gochugaru) for extra spice
1) Cook the noodles according to the packet directions. My udon were done in 3 minutes. Rinse with cold water and drain. Set aside.
2) Make the sauce by mixing all the ingredients together. If you like it a little on the sweeter, tangy side, add the honey as well as the sugar.
3) Divide the noodles between 2 bowls, then top with the assorted vegetables, the green onion and kim chi and a big dollop of sauce. Mix together and top with sesame seeds. Serve with extra sauce if needed and a hard-boiled egg or fried egg is good too.
Looks and sounds so delicious!

Some chilli and ginger will be good? Love to try out. Thanks.
Kim chi is made with chili, garlic and ginger, so these flavors are already here. Also the sauce has chili in it. But def add more if that’s your joy! 🙂
