Yes, I know : /
But ya know what? This is actually what I had for dinner twice this week. It comes up so quickly, it’s fast, delicious, and easy. Also, it’s great bc I almost always have Kimchi on hand. Mama used to make this for us with Somen but I really like the texture of these Buckwheat Noodles. I’m a big ole’ weirdo and am fascinated with the most mundane things when it comes to food. I really like how shiny these noodles are. They almost look like shiny Acorn Jelly Straws or something (yes, I 100% fully admit my weirdness, lol).
This is what they look like pre-cooked (just in case you’re not familiar with Buckwheat Noodles)
They’re super inexpensive…the place I go to has them for not even $4 and 1 bundle does it for me each time so they last forever!
This is what you’ll need:
- 1 bundle Buckwheat Noodles
- 1/4-1/2 c roughly chopped Kimchi in its Juice (how much depends on you)
- 1 tb Red Pepper Paste (Gochujang)
- 1 1/2 ts Sesame Oil
- 1 ts Sesame Seed
- 1 ts Sugar
- Optional: Grilled Fish/Chicken/etc, chopped Green Onions, Minced Garlic, Rice Vinegar
I promise to let up with the Kimchi now…just had to squish this in there bc they’re really that awesome. So easy a baby could do it (maybe) =D
