Korean japchae (glass noodles w vegetables) made for the family a few weeks back. After several failed attempts, this one came out the way I wanted.

But this time, I finally got those two out of the way and made a flavorful dish that the entire family enjoyed. Also, we made a vegetarian version on behalf of Komobu, the vegetarian, and surprisingly the absence of meat didn’t make much of a difference.
