Below I also share a non-spicy version with you but it does not contain kimchi or gochujang paste but it’s just as delicious!
When I first heard about this dish, I was so fascinated by it. Mainly because the noodles were served cold but they have this delicious chewy texture. So I had to create my version of it. This one is SUPER easy to make as it only requires your noodles to be mixed in the same bowl that you made your sauce. If you opt for no cucumbers, it’ll one a one-bowl recipe!
It’s such a good noodle dish for when the weather is warmer as the noodles are so refreshing! These noodles do carry a spicy kick but the cucumbers provide a cooling after effect 🙂 Or you can try making the non-spicy version below, just omit the gochujang paste and kimchi.
Watch how I made this!
For this recipe
You will need Korean extra thin round wheat noodles, vegan kimchi, soy sauce, sugar, rice vinegar, sesame oil, sesame seeds, gochujang paste and cucumbers and an egg.
Where can I find some of these ingredients?
Korean Extra Thin Wheat Noodles. Any Asian or Korean grocer in the noodle aisle
Vegan Kimchi. Korean or some Asian grocery stores. What makes it vegan is that they don’t use fish sauce in it.
Gochujang Paste. Korean and Asian grocery stores. Check your sauce aisle.
Rice Vinegar. Asian grocers
I hope you’re able to find these ingredients! I also recommend looking online as well!
