Vegetable Japchae – Korean Mixed Glass Noodles (Happy Lunar New Year dish part 2) 2.12.21

Compared to the pancakes this has quite a few more steps but the taste is worth it. It is one of my fave Korean dishes that I can eat for weeks if it was not tedious to make haha *^^* this serves 4-6 people. We had left overs so we froze them for now and gave some to my friend. We will eat them again probably next week.

Ingredients:

  • 1 small pack of water bracken or fiddleheads (a korean meaty vegetable)
  • 1 medium sized carrot
  • 1/2 a large onion or 1 whole medium onion
  • 2 bunch of spinach or 1 pack of bunches of spinach sold at korean mart hmart
  • 1 package of oyster mushrooms
  • 800g Glass noodles
  • Soy sauce
  • Sesame oil
  • Sesame seeds
  • Olive oil
  • Salt
  • Perilla powder

Directions:

  1. Since I had to prepare other dishes day of, I prepped the vegetables the night before.
  2. First wash the vegetables.
  3. Julienne the carrot and slice the onion the same size as the carrot.
  4. The small pack of fiddleheads in water just drain the water and rinse before cooking.
  5. Rip the oyster mushrooms into strips.
  6. Heat a frying pan with some olive oil. We are going to cook each vegetable separately.
  7. Cook the carrots first then let them cool.
  8. Then cook the mushrooms and let cool.
  9. Then put in the spinach to cook. Season with some sesame oil (2 tbsp) and some salt to taste. Let that cool.
  10. Cook the onions I like them soft and somewhat carmelized.
  11. Then lastly, cook the fiddleheads. (4 tbsp of soy sauce, 2 tbsp of sesame oil and 3 tbsp of perilla powder)
  12. Once all the ingredients are cooled you can store them in the fridge. Take them out the morning of before assembling to let the coldness go away.
  13. On the day let the glass noodles soak in water for 30 minutes – 1 hour. I would do this first so that it soaks while you make the pancakes.
  14. Bring 5 cups of water and 2 cups of soy sauce to a boil.
  15. Add in the noodles to cook for about 6 minutes.
  16. Drain them into a boil.
  17. Do 3 drizzle rounds of sesame oil.
  18. Add in the vegetables and mix them together.
  19. Be careful not to burn your hand when mixing! Let it cool a bit if it is too hot.
  20. Lastly sprinkle some sesame seeds mix again and enjoy!
