This is a vegan and gluten-free version of a popular Korean dish, japchae, which literally means «mixed vegetables». The main ingredient is sweet potato noodles. These special noodles have a unique and pleasant texture compared to traditional rice or wheat noodles. They’re boiled and stir fried with sugar and soy, making them both chewy and springy, with a balanced sweet and savoury flavour. This dish can be served both hot or cold, and works perfectly as a main dish, snack, or appetiser.
