Kimchi Soba/Buckwheat Noodles 비빔국수


This is actually what I had for supper twice this week.  It comes up so quickly, it’s fast, delicious, and easy.  Also, it’s great because I almost always have kimchi on hand.  Mama used to make this for us with somen but I really like the texture of the soba.  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.  The noodles can easily be substituted for another but the gochujang is pretty pivotal.
