THE YI'S & SPICY KOREAN NOODLES

Spending time and babysitting at the Yi's has always been one of my favorite things to do here in Ann Arbor. They are just the most darling family from my church in Ann Arbor! Their lovely family has abundantly showered me with love and care that I'll never be able to forget. It's at the Yi's that I'm able to play with my favorite kids as well as learn simple recipes from Kathleen (Mrs. Yi)  whether it be a salad dressing or a popular Korean dish. 

SPICY KOREAN COLD NOODLES

Get excited! Because today, I realized yet again how easy and simple it was to prepare bibim gooksoo, the cold noodle dish that originates from Korea. 

Just add these four ingredients (korean red chili paste, honey, rice vinegar, mirim)  in a bowl and while adding, make sure to taste the sauce. It should be a sweet and tangy taste.

After you set aside the sauce, you can go ahead and cut the cucumbers in strips, boil eggs, and set all those aside once you're finished. 

After you have prepared all your ingredients, boil some nengmyun noodles (you can find these in your nearest oriental market) and don't forget to rinse the noodles in ice cold water. Just assemble the noodles in a bowl, top it with the cucumbers, a boiled egg cut in half, a drizzle of sesame oil and voila you are finished! You can dish the spicy sauce separately so you can control how much goes in your noodles. 

It was my last day with the Yi's but I wouldn't have spent my Wednesday any other way. Enjoy, be happy, & au revoir!
