30 Minute Spicy Korean Noodle|

30 Minute Spicy Korean Noodles (Jap-Chae)

  • Author: Amanda


A simple DELICIOUS 30 minute stir-fry noodles that have Korean roots is the PERFECT weeknight vegetarian dinner! Packed with flavor from my favorite Korean chili paste, garlic, ginger, a splash of lime juice, and some crispy tofu.


  • 12oz of glass noodles/dry vermicelli, cooked per package instructions


  • 2 tbs of Lucky Foods Gochujang paste
  • 1 tbs miso paste
  • 5 tbs of soy sauce (or coconut aminos)
  • 1' of ginger, grated
  • 1 lime


  • 1 tbs sesame oil
  • 2 cups of chopped kale
  • 1 zucchini, cut into half moons
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 1 cup of corn
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, sliced thin
  • 8oz of extra firm tofu, drained and pressed

Garnish Options:

  • Cilantro
  • Lime slices
  • Cucumber
  • Carrots


  1.  Prep all the vegetables and press tofu *
  2. Pre-heat a large skillet on medium high heat. Once heated add sesame oil, shallots, and tofu. Crisp tofu on all sides until browned. (About 3-5 minutes) Set aside
  3. To the same skillet, saute remaining veggies (pepper, zucchini, and kale)
  4. While vegetables cook, make the noodles.
  5. Whisk the sauce ingredients in a small bowl.
  6. Add sauce to the vegetables and stir in the noodles and tofu.
  7. Serve in bowls topped with your favorite garnish!


Note: If you have not cooked with tofu before, dont fret! It's easier than I thought (and I am still new at this!). Simply drain the tofu from package then wrap in paper towels. Place in bowl or dish and place heavy item on top. Let press for about 10 minutes.
