Directions

Bibim-naengmyeon (비빔냉면) is a very healthy, quick, cold, spicy noodle dish that tastes great on a hot summers day (it tastes pretty good on any other day as well!). The dish is made of cold noodles mixed with strips of carrot and cucumber, a hard boiled egg, and covered with a sweet and spicy sauce.

This is a lunchtime favourite in my house as it doesn’t take long to prepare and tastes divine. It’s also pretty healthy and so ticks all of the right boxes! The cold, slightly chewy texture of the noodles is a perfect contrast to the spicy sauce that covers them and although the sauce is quite hot it never becomes over powering.

Steps

1
Done

Hard boil the egg in a pan of boiling water for approximately 10 minutes.

2
Done

Fill a large pan with water and bring to the boil. Add the noodles to the boiling water and cook for about 5 minutes. Test a single noodle to make sure it is the right consistency. It should be chewy but not hard in the middle.

* It's best to use a large pan to cook these noodles as their high starch content do make them prone to stick to each other.

3
Done

When the noodles are cooked, drain them and rinse 2 to 3 times in cold water until the water turns clear. Pop the noodles into a bowl and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.

4
Done

Slice the cucumber and carrots into thin julienne strips. Once hard boiled, peel and slice the egg in half.

5
Done

In a bowl combine all ingredients for the sauce and mix well. The sauce should be fairly thick but still runny. Add a little more water to thin it down a little if this isn't the case.

6
Done

Split everything between 2 serving bowls. Start by placing the noodles first with the cucumber, carrot and egg on top. Finally cover everything with the sauce and add the ice cubes.

7
Done

Mix everything well with the sauce and enjoy!
