White Kimchi Cold Noodle Soup (Dongchimi Gooksu)


Dongchimi Noodles

Dongchimi Gooksu

Naomi Imatome Yun
This recipe for dongchimi noodles (dongchimi gooksu) can take between 10 minutes and 3 days to prepare. If you buy the dongchimi (the best way I can describe it clearly is to call it white radish water kimchi) ready-made or you already have it in your fridge, then this recipe takes about 10 minutes. If you are starting from scratch, then it takes about 3 days for the dongchimi to reach the correct flavor. It's worth it though, as the end result is a tart, refreshing bowl of cold noodles.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes
