Popular opinion: NOODLES ARE THE BEST.
Aren’t they the best???
Especially if they are slurp worthy with a spicy sweet sauce with all of summer’s harvest has to offer. Plus? It’s done in about 25 minutes!
Talk about a great Meatless Monday option!
I’ve been wanting to share this recipe for a while now and when Lucky Foods sent me some awesome Korean condiments and sauces I knew it was time for my version of my favorite Korean dish: Jap-Chae.
My aunt is Korean and I grew up tasting all of her amazing cooking. We would leave her house with SO many jars of kimchi!
But my favorite was always jap-chae.
These aren’t just any noodles. They are sweet potato vermicelli noodles. They have the best consistency and I actually prefer them over ramen noodles! They are slightly “bouncier” than ramen but are so slurp-worthy!
The key here is the sauce.
It’s super easy too! And made with pantry/fridge staples!
You MUST use gochujang paste (aka Korean spicy chili paste) it’s like a way better version of curry paste and goes great in soups,stews, and sauces!
It starts with some tamari or soy sauce (coconut aminos work here too)
A little miso paste (this adds a depth of flavor that I love plus it’s a way I sneak some fermented foods in my recipe! 😉)
PRO TIP: buy fresh ginger and put what you don’t use in the freezer. Then you just grate it frozen (the skin peels back as you grate so it won’t get in your dish!))
Lime juice - for some acidity and freshness
ANY veggies you have on hand! I wanted to use the best of Summer's bounty with some corn,zucchini, cilantro, cucumbers, carrots....just ALL THE VEGGIES. If you have been following me on Instagram stories, you KNOW I am getting super serious about getting all the plants I can in my day!
This all comes together as a super simple and quick stir fry noodle recipe with my FAVORITE noodles that are slightly sweet and a little chewy PLUS the gochujang paste that takes me back to my child hood favorite jap-chae.
