Gochujang (hot pepper paste) is a savory, spicy, and pungent fermented Korean condiment made from red chili, glutinous rice, fermented soybeans, and salt. Depending on the brand you have, it can vary in heat. It can be a pure concentrated gochujang paste or mixed with ingredients to make sauce which is not as hot. Gochujang can be used to make glazes and sauces that make the meal very flavorful and appetizing.
I used the paste with garlic, sesame oil and a bit of sweet to make a sauce in which chickpeas were simmered until they pick up the flavor. Add veggies of choice and serve in wraps, lettuce leaf wraps, tacos or over rice or cooked grains. Or Make a Bibimbap bowl with the gochujang chickpeas, rice, kimchi, some roasted veggies, sprouts and more gochujang. Make these simple Gochujang Chickpeas to try out this sauce!
