Spicy Cold Bibim-myeon with Konjac noodle

Updated: Dec 21, 2021




Have you tried Konjac?


Konjac, aka 'glucomannan(glu whaat?!) is a herb that grows in parts of Asia. It's starchy corm (not corn), a tube-like part of the stem that grows underground. The corm is used to create high fiber dietary supplements, jellies, and flour.


You would have seen them on the supermarket shelves next Udon Noodles and so on.

Yup Konjac originated in Asian countries but is becoming quite popular in the West. Why? It is a great dietary supplement for weight loss and cholesterol management (safe for vegans as well).




You can find these in major supermarkets or Asian grocery stores.


So,,, how do I cook and eat Konjac?


Simple answer: You can use them like any other noodle you buy at the store.

Boil them, fry them, put in soup, stew etc.


Today, I would like to share a very simple recipe for Korean style 'Spicy Cold bibim-myeon with Konjac noodle. All ingredients can be purchased from a Korean grocery store or most Asian grocery stores.


Ingredients: 1 packet of Konjac, green salad or lettuce, cabbage, cucumber, carrot, red onion, egg and any other vegetables as preferred



Sauce: Gochujang, ACV (Apple Cider Vinegar), Organic stevia(See my post about Oragnic stevia), Sesame seeds, Sesame oil



Instructions:

1) Drain water from the Konjac noodle packet and put in the hot water to boil for about 2-3 min.

2) Drain and rinse the noodles with cold water until the 'unpleasant scent' is removed.

2) Boil one egg for 10 min and put it in the fridge to cool it down

3) Keep in the fridge (this dish is best when served cold) while making sauce and prepare other ingredients

4) Make sauce: combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well to make Chogochujang sauce

Gochujang 2 tsp, ACV 1 tsp, Organic Stevia 1 tsp, Minced garlic 1/2 tsp

5) Julienne the cucumber, carrot and thinly slice other vegetables.

6) Add the noodle in the bowl (if not in the bowl already), top up with sliced vegetables and the sauce. Cut the egg in half and place on top.

7) You can add about 1 tsp of sesame oil and sprinkle sesame seeds on top for extra flavour.

8. Mix (bibim) everything together and enjoy!
