I’m on bag three of the kelp noodles. Bag 1 was okay, but it was too crunchy for my liking. The room-mate liked it, and we ate it all. With bag number two, I had decided that I was going to deal with the crunchiness, but then I put the leftovers in the refrigerator, and when I got them out the next day, the noodles were soft. Was it the refrigerator, the marination, or the vinegar? No idea. Tonight, I did not want to wait until tomorrow, so I decided to try a new trick that works with other vegetables. First I marinated for about 2 hours, but nothing changed. Then, once I had the whole thing put together, I put the bowl in the dehydrator at 125 degrees for 20 minutes. Voila! Soft noodles, and the vegetables came out softer too. This dish tonight tastes quite a big like Korean japchae (which is what I was trying for)
Next time I make it (maybe Thursday), I am going to pay attention to amounts so I can post a recipe. Tonight, I must eat this up! Yumm!
