Japchae (Korean Sweet Potato Noodle Stir Fry) with Cobi Kanani of Veggietorials
Have you ever tried Sweet Potato Noodles? They are insanely delicious and naturally gluten free, and easy to buy online on amazon- so you can make this Noodle Stir Fry in no time! Cobi of Veggietorials taught me how to make this on the latest episode of my cooking show, (Watch the episode below) and I instantly fell in love with it. This Korean dish has many names sometimes called chop chae, chapchae, or Korean glass noodles. One of the best parts is that it is super easy to make and insanely healthy. Making it a meal you can add to your nightly meal rotation. Plus once you try these noodles you will be once again reminded how awesome being gluten free and discovering new foods is.
Cobi has been making vegan versions of her favorite foods for some time now, she loves to show you new twists on Asian Classics and has been doing a new series that is everything I want to eat called "Eating When I'm Board", in this series she shows you have to make huge platters of food in no time for friends, family or a dinner parties, and we all are in a little need of that.
Also Cobi and I did an amazing collaboration on her YouTube Channel called "Pizza Waffles" Yes they are vegan, plant based and gluten free! Plus they were so fun to make. So make sure to watch that video here.
