This Korean-inspired soup features a balanced salty-sweet-mildly spicy broth. It gets its heat and a dose of umami from gochujang, a Korean fermented chili paste; look for it in red plastic tubs or squeeze bottles in the international aisle of most grocery stores. If you can't find gochujang, Asian-chili garlic sauce is a reasonable substitute. Sprinkle the soup with toasted sesame seeds before serving and, if you like, offer steamed rice on the side.




Don't forget to trim the noodles after soaking and draining. Cellophane noodles are usually extremely long. If not trimmed, the strands will clump in one knot in the middle of the pot.

Love, love this soup! The first and last picture shows sesame seeds in the soup but there are none listed in the recipe ? Please advise the quantity was left off. Thanks!

Hi Aimee -

The sesame seeds are an optional ingredient listed in the headnote of the recipe (the introductory note about the recipe at the top of the page). Since it's a garnish, you can use however many sesame seeds you would like!
