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.
