As much as we like soups, there comes a point in the dead of winter when you just do not want soup for a while. When your inner self wants to rebel a little and make-believe it’s warm and sunny outside and you want some – gasp – cold noodles.
Dr. Tae Yun Kim takes this concept to a whole new level. With her limitless creativity, intuition and Ki energy, she creates food that appeals to body, mind and spirit.
While you might say ramen is bad for you – Dr. Kim just smiles and makes food that not only tastes great but is also good for you. There are many healthy versions available nowadays. And for us gluten-free folks – not to worry, you can make these with not only ramen noodles, but different kinds of rice noodles or sweet potato noodles.
This culinary Masterpiece started out with the Korean pepper paste (yes, also available in gluten-free now), garlic, apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, organic brown sugar or honey, chopped parsley and cilantro, grated or finely chopped Asian pears and Asian radishes, sesame seeds and a touch of sesame oil. Dunk the cooked in drained noodles, and serve. Add any cooked and cooled meat or chicken to this, and any chopped veggies and/or fruit.
Proportions are difficult to tell, because some like it sweeter and some like it hotter and some prefer more lemon juice than others. Key is try until you love it! 🙂
Now go enjoy!
