Vegan Japchae Noodles

You are in for a delicious treat!  Japchae: Glass noodles made from sweet potatoes; gluten free; beautiful chewy texture that is unlike any other noodle.  
Like a lot of starch dishes, noodles will pick up flavours of whatever you season them with.  In this case, japchae tastes like sweet soy – sesame sauce with vegetables.  It is truly amazing and can be served as a main or a side.  
This is a very easy dish to prepare, and the noodles can be found in most East Asian grocery stores.  
For 4-6 servings 
  • 1 bundle Japchae noodles 
  • 3 scallions, chopped
  • 2 carrots, julienned
  • ½ green or red pepper, chopped
  • 1 cup bean sprouts 
  • 1 block tofu, cubed into 1cm pieces
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • ¼ cup soy sauce  or tamari 
  • 3 table spoons sesame oil 
  • 2 table spoons brown sugar 
  • 1 table spoon black pepper
  • 3 table spoons sesame seeds (as garnish) 
  • vegetable oil for frying 

  1. Boil the Japchae noodles for 5-8 minutes, or until soft, drain and set aside.  
  2. In a large frying pan add a few drops of vegetable oil and lightly sauté carrots, pepper, garlic, and bean sprouts for a few minutes until they wilt.  
  3. In a large bowl, toss the sautéed veggies, noodles, sugar, sesame oil, soy sauce, and pepper.  
  4. Sprinkle with sesame seeds before serving.
