2 Tbsp Oolong Tea Seed Oil
1 Tbsp Gochujang (Korean Hot Pepper Paste)

bring water to boil for noodles kimchi bibim

Bring 1.5 liters of water to a boil for cooking the noodles. Do not use too much water—you only want a small amount of the starchy turmeric pasta water to blend the sauce in the bowl. 

use hands in mixing bowl kimchi bibim

In a steel mixing bowl, combine all the ingredients except noodles. With plastic gloves, use your hands to gently but thoroughly knead and mix all the ingredients together evenly.

add noodles kimchi bibim

Add 2 bundles of noodles to the boiling water and cook for about 2 minutes or until “al dente.” Don’t overcook. Using tongs, deftly grab the noodles from the water and place the noodles directly into the mixing bowl with the other ingredients. Add a dash of the starchy pasta water to the mixing bowl—max 2 oz. The heat of the wet noodles and the added pasta water will combine and harmonize flavors and textures of the ingredients.

Once mixed, this dish becomes bright and lively. Using chop sticks or gently using tongs, stir and combine noodles and all ingredients in the bowl until the vivid red sauce evenly coats the noodles and veggies. Be mindful not to break or smash the noodles.
