Spicy Kimchi Noodles
If you’re Korean, you will almost ALWAYS have kimchi in the fridge along with somyeon (wheat flour) noodles in your pantry. Growing up, whenever there was nothing to eat in the house, my mom would whip up her infmaous Bibim Guksu. This literally translates to “Mixed Noodles”—throw some Kimchi & pepper paste and you have Spicy Kimchi Noodles. The best part about this dish is that it requires minimal prep and you’ll have a delicious meal ready in less than 15 minutes!
8 oz somyeon (wheat flour) noodles
1 cup Kimchi,chopped
1/4 cup Kimchi Juice
1 Tablespoon of Gochujang (pepper paste)
1 TBSP sugar
1 TBSP sesame oil
1 tsp Sesame Seeds
Cucumber, thinly sliced
Hard boiled egg, halved
Chop Kimchi into small pieces and add to a mixing bowl, along with Kimchi Juice.
Add red pepper paste, sesame oil, and sugar.
Bring 6 cups of water to a boil and add somyeon noodles. Follow the noodles according to the package instructions and cook noodles (3-4 minutes). Drain and give noodles an ice bath to stop from cooking. Drain and rinse in cold water until noodles are cold.
Add noodles to kimchi mixture and mix well.
Garnish with sliced cucumber, sesame seeds and 1/2 hardboiled egg.
Serve immediately & enjoy!
