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!⁣

For 2:⁣

– 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.
