This vegan Bibim Guksu (비건 비빔국수), also known as Spicy Mixed Noodles is a popular Korean cold spicy noodle dish consisting of thin wheat noodles that have been cooked and cooled, a delicious and flavourful spicy Korean sauce, and a mixture of fresh vegetables.

The sauce used in Bibim Guksu is often plant-based or vegan-friendly however, traditionally this dish is topped with an egg and sometimes animal products are often used, however, it’s easy to make vegan by omitting the egg!

How To Make Bibim Guksu (Vegan)

1. Start making bibim guksu vegan by cooking your wheat noodles according to package instructions. If have frozen edamame beans, feel free to boil them with the noodles together. While your noodles are cooking, prepare your vegetables by washing & dicing them.

2. Once noodles are cooked, drain and rinse thoroughly in cold water until noodles are cold.

3. Next, make your spicy Korean sauce by mixing together the sauce ingredients until smooth: gochujang (Korean red pepper paste), vinegar, soy sauce, toasted sesame oil, garlic powder and sugar (or agave nectar/maple syrup substitute)

4. Then, in a large serving bowl, add the noodles and edamame (optional), and sauce and mix well. I suggest adding a small amount of sauce at first and then tasting to see how much more you need as everyone’s preference is different.

5. Top the noodles with vegetables. Then, optionally top with sesame seeds, green onion and vegan kimchi. Mix well before enjoying!

    This was so refreshing after a hot summer day but still spicy enough for some fun! I just used veggies I had in the fridge (carrots, green peas, and spinach) and some rice vermicelli and this sauce was amazing on it! Really can’t go wrong with gochujang :3
