Korean Chilli & Garlic Noodles

Korean Chilli & Garlic Noodles

I'm not sure I could live without Asian noodles, they come in so many different shapes and sizes, made in so many different ways, exploring the multitude of options available is always great - a bit like trying out different pasta shapes. Like pasta, the noodle is only half the story and you need a good sauce to go with it.

I have a number of 'go to' noodle sauces - ones that I can throw together really quickly, generally from store cupboard ingredients and this is one of them.

Gochujang provides the base for this sauce and also the Korean vibe - it has a unique flavour and combined with garlic and sesame, it tastes fantastic.

This noodle sauce is versatile and goes with most things. Just stir-fry whatever you like, chicken, prawns, vegetables, cook your favorite noodles and combine everything with the sauce. Here I've just cooked some green beans for colour and texture. So for this recipe, I'm just giving you the sauce and you can add any other ingredients that you like.

Korean Chilli & Garlic Noodle Sauce
Serves 4

2 tablespoons gochujang
1 tablespoon light soy sauce
1 tablespoon black rice vinegar
2 teaspoons caster sugar
2 teaspoons sesame seeds
3 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
1 tablespoon sesame oil

1. Mix all the ingredients together and slather over your noodles.

Chefs Tip: The sauce is quite thick so it's good to add your noodles straight from the boiling water with a small amount of the boiling water. This will loosen the sauce enough to coat the noodles. Then toss in any stir-fried vegetables, meat of fish.

Duck confit recipe Somerset Foodie - Lecale Harvest
Confit Duck with Bacon and White Bean Cassoulet, Spiced Braised Red Cabbage

It's hard to find authentic confit in the supermarkets here so I was so excited to discover this version, made in Ireland and in vacuum sealed packs with a good long shelf life. It's stunning quality and just as good as any confit you'll find in France.

When it's cold and rainy this beef ramen recipe has magical reviving properties, it's like nestling into an enormous sheepskin rug in front of a roaring fire on the grimmest of winter days.
