Unique 5-ingredient Korean dish

Jap chae: Korean no-cook kelp noodles with vegetables

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup thinly sliced onion
  • 1 cup sliced shitake mushrooms
  • ½ cup julienned carrot
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 (12-ounce) package kelp noodles
  • Salt (or soy sauce if that doesn't count!)
Directions:
  1. Place the onion and mushrooms in a large mixing bowl and toss with salt until mixed well.

  2. Set aside for at least 15-20 minutes to marinade and soften.

  3. Add the carrot and sesame oil. Mix well.

  4. Add the noodles and toss to mix well.
Ani's Note: Jap chae is one of my favorite Korean noodle dishes, and it's traditionally made with rice noodles. This recipe was inspired by my mother, who pointed out how similar kelp noodles are to rice noodles.

Mom helped me figure out how to season my noodles with pretty much the same ingredients as the cooked version.
