HOT WEATHER RECIPE!
Korea gets incredibly HOT in the summer. When it’s really hot, Koreans eat either boiling hot stews to naturally cool down or cold dishes such as this one!
You might be familiar with bibimbap, this sounds similar because “bibim” means mixed and “guksu” is noodles. It’s a super simple dish but the twist is, that the noodles are eaten cold. Might not be for everyone and might seem a bit strange but it’s so delicious and refreshing!
A nice mix of sour and sweet and spice, often topped with cucumber and a boiled egg. Recipe bellow!
– 1 cup kimchi
– 1/2 cup kimchi juice
– 1 TBS gochujang
– 1 tsp sugar
– 1 tsp sesame oil
– 1 TBS soy sauce
– 2 tsp Korean apple vinegar (optional, only if your kimchi isn’t well fermented)
– thin wheat noodles (I used rice vermicelli as that’s all I had)
– cucumber julienned
– boiled egg
Chop kimchi and mix with gochujang, vinegar, sugar, kimchi juice, soy sauce and sesame oil.
Boil noodles then rinse in cold water until completely cold. Add to a big bowl.
Add sauce and mix well. Test to adjust seasoning to your taste.
Garnish with cucumber, egg and some sesame seeds.
