As I was finding recipes for ground pork, I came across this recipe: Kimchi Soup with Glass Noodles. It looked easy to prepare and there are only a few ingredients. I only had glass noodles missing in the pantry so I went to the grocery and found that the 80g Korean vermicelli is perfect for this recipe.
It didn’t take long to cook plus the serving size is perfect for me. The only oil used in this recipe is sesame oil which is aromatic at best. I thoroughly enjoyed this soup, it’s so flavorful and it’s perfect to eat while watching Korean series. Best eaten immediately after cooking 🥘
