If you like Kimchi and ‘Takuan’ (Japanese Pickled Daikon), the combination of Kimchi and ‘Takuan’ must be irresistible. ‘Kimu-Taku Rice’ is very popular in Japan and I love it. Today I mixed the Kimchi and ‘Takuan’ with Udon Noodles. Udon Noodles can be replaced with other noodles of your choice such as Somen, Capellini, Soba, Rice Noodles, or Egg Noodles.
1 serving Noodles *Today I used Udon Noodles
1/2 Spring Onion *finely chopped, save some for topping
1 Egg *cooked in your favourite way, find ‘Onsen Tamago’ recipe
1 teaspoon Sesame Oil
1/2 teaspoon Toban Djan (Chilli Bean Sauce) or Gochujang (Korean Spicy Miso) *optional
2 tablespoonfuls Kimchi
3 to 4cm ‘Takuan” (Japanese Pickled Daikon)
1 teaspoons Soy Sauce *plus extra
Toasted Sesame Seeds
- Combine Sesame Oil and Toban Djan (Chilli Bean Sauce) or Gochujang (Korean Spicy Miso) in a mixing bowl, add Kimchi, ‘Takuan’ and Spring Onion, season with Soy Sauce, and mix well.
- Cook Noodles according to the instruction, rinse under cold water, and drain well. Add to the bowl, and mix to combine.
- Cook an Egg in your favourite way. I cooked it in the microwave. It took 50 seconds. Find the method here.
- Place the ‘Kimu-Taku’ Noodles in a serving bowl, add the Egg, sprinkle with saved finely chopped Spring Onion and Toasted Sesame Seeds, drizzle with Soy Sauce over the Egg, and enjoy.
