  • 1 cup kimchi (see notes)
  • 1 tablespoon juice from kimchi (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil, plus more for drizzling
  • 1 teaspoon gochujang (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 8 ounces angel hair pasta
  • 2-3 ice cubes
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 mini cucumbers or 1 English cucumber, julienned
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
  • 1 package (about 0.35 oz) seaweed snacks, cut into thin strips
  • 2 Nellie's Free Range Eggs, soft- or hard-boiled


  • Fill a large pot about 2/3 full with water and bring to a boil.
  • In a large bowl, add kimchi and finely chop it with kitchen shears.
  • Add juice from kimchi, toasted sesame oil, gochujang, and sugar. Wearing cooking gloves, mix well with your hands, gently massaging the kimchi.
  • Add angel hair pasta to the boiling water. Cook al dente per the instructions on the package. Transfer to a colander and rinse cooked pasta with cold water to cool it down.
  • Add pasta and ice cubes to the bowl with kimchi, then toss to combine. Add salt to taste.
  • Divide kimchi mixed noodles between 2 serving bowls. Drizzle with more toasted sesame oil and sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds. Top each bowl with cucumber, seaweed, and a soft- or hard-boiled egg before serving.

Nellie's Notes

For kids with a low spice tolerance, rinse the kimchi in a mesh strainer with cold water before step 2, then squeeze the washed kimchi with your hands to remove excess water. After mixing in the pasta, season with soy sauce to taste in place of or in addition to the gochujang.

Angel hair pasta is similar in texture to Korean soba noodles and can be used in this recipe for a result similar to the to the traditional dish.
