Red Radish Kimchi and Noodles
Updated: Mar 7
I love kimchi, I love making kimchi, and I love coming up with different ways to use it. Napa cabbage kimchi and radish kimchi are two of my favorite kimchi that I love to make at home. The process may seem daunting to beginners who've never made homemade pickled or fermented foods but its actually pretty simple and can be done in 10 minutes or less. Personally, I would recommend that you try kimchi from either H-Mart or a Korean restaurant to see if you like it and then try using my recipes to make it at home.
Kimchi can be used in a variety of rice and noodle dishes as well as soups and stews. As a pasta lover and a home cook who has gotten pretty good at making different kinds of fried rice, I love combining kimchi with pasta and other vegetables when I'm in a meatless mood and have some of my homemade kimchi on hand.
Whenever I make my globe radish kimchi I usually use the whole batch in this recipe. Its perfect for people who love the salty and savory flavor, the hearty crunch of the radishes mixed with the sweet and spicy sauce, and the egg noodles that soak everything up. If you've made my red radish kimchi, like noodles with a bit of a kick, and are looking for something to make with the kimchi, this recipe is for you!
(Version with thick and chewy Hokkien noodles which are also know as lo mein noodles but with a different name)
(Above: version with angel hair pasta)
-one 7.1 0z. bag of Hokkien stir fry noodles or 4 oz. angel hair pasta or linguine if you don't have Hokkien noodles
-1 cup radish kimchi (see my radish kimchi recipe)
-1 cup chopped baby bella mushrooms
-1/2 cup chopped yellow onions
-1/2 cup of the juice from the kimchi
-3 tbs. margarine or unsalted butter
-2 tbs. sesame oil
-2 tbs. soy sauce
-2 tbs. sugar

Note: Hokkien and lo mein noodles can usually be found in the Asian/Hispanic foods aisle in most big grocery stores like Food Lion, Safeway, and Giant.
Cook noodles, drain, and set aside. Melt margarine or butter in a pan. Mix sesame oil, soy sauce, sugar, garlic, and sriracha in a bowl. Add radish kimchi, mushrooms, onions, the kimchi juice, and half of the sauce to the pan. Cook on medium high heat for 8 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Mix in noodles and the rest of the sauce mixture. Enjoy!
