  • 1.5 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt (plus add some additional salt when you sauté your veggies - to taste)
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp canola oil
  • fresh veggies (I used spinach, green and red bell pepper, mushrooms, and shredded carrots)
  • 1/4 c red onions (or shallots)
  • 1 tbsp chopped garlic
  • ~1 tbsp gochujang sauce (or to taste! And make sure it is the SAUCE not paste since the paste is much stronger)
  • sesame seeds (for garnish)
  • vermicelli noodles (make sure these are the ones made from potato starch)


  • Mix your sauce ingredients and set aside: sesame oil, soy, sugar, and salt.
  • Add canola oil to your pan and sauté your onions until translucent; then add in your garlic and cook another 30 seconds or so.
  • Add in fresh veggies and sauté for a minute or so before adding in some salt.
  • Make sure not to cook the veggies too much since we want them to be crisp still and not mushy.
  • Then add in your cooked vermicelli noodles, and your sauce, and cook until the sauce has thickened and coated the noodles evenly.
  • Garnish with sesame seeds before serving and add your gochujang sauce in right before eating. I use the brand "chung jung one" and it's my favorite! (not sponsored lol)
