Jajangmyeon (Zha Jiang Mian) without meat á la jr.

Jajangmyeon is a dish made in Korea and China, but it is called Zha Jiang Mian. It is common to make it with pork, but this version my son made as a vegan dish. You can buy fermented bean paste in Asian stores.

1 onion

10 small potatoes

1 squash

1 dl fermented bean paste

Oil for frying

1 clove garlic, finely chopped

1 cm ginger, finely chopped

1/2 spring onion, finely shredded + a little to decorate with when serving

1 tablespoon sugar

Egg-free noodles of your choice

Divide onions, potatoes and squash into 2 x 2 cm pieces and fry it golden brown in the oil. Make space in the middle of the potato mixture and pour in the bean paste. Stir and fry the pasta for a few minutes, before adding the garlic, ginger, spring onion and sugar. Stir everything together and add enough water to cover the vegetables. Cook under a lid for 10 min. and cook noodles according to the instructions on the package while you wait.

Put noodles on the plate, then jajangmyeon and a little shredded spring onion on top.

Tip: If you want to make this dish with meat, you can fry some bacon cubes first and add the rest of the ingredients as described in the recipe below.
