Teresa's October blog

As the season slowly transitions from fall to winter, we also may be interested in changing some parts of our life. How about your kitchen? Specifically, the food you cook in your kitchen.

With my recipe, you can brag that you don't need these ↑ anymore

Recently I have been enthralled by an easy-going reality show about a Korean couple running an AirB&B in their home in one of the Jeju Islands. Like most of the other hostel owners, this couple starts cooking for others. I was inspired to recreate one of their dishes: spicy noodles with veggies.

This is the "light version." I personally like mine more red with more spice.

This is something you can whip up if you want something quick that will warm you from the inside out!

You need:

1 pack of ramen noodle (without the sachet)

2 handfuls of okra

2 handfuls of spinach

1 egg

2 tablespoons of gochujang

A splash of sesame oil

A dollop of honey

(As you can see, there is no exact measurements. Just use your heart as a guide.)


Wash your hands!

Oil your pan.

Stir fry the okra and spinach for about 5 minutes.

Put the veggies in a separate bowl.

Boil water for the noodles.

Cook the noodles until al dente.

Mix the gochujang, sesame oil, and honey.

Mix all the veggies, noodles, and sauce.

Fry an egg.

Place the fried egg on top of the noodles.

Feel free to add cucumbers and sesame seeds!

Enjoy! These pictures are from the Internet because this dish is too delicious for me to not gulp down the noodles within a second of it being placed in front of me.
