Soybean Paste (Doenjang)
Doenjang (된장) is an assertively flavored, thick brown paste made from fermented soybeans and salt. It's one of the essential ingredients in a Korean home cook's pantry, along with other staples like soy sauce and gochujang, the sweet-spicy fermented red chile paste. It has the "funky" quality of fermented food, and a pungent smell similar to that of a ripened blue cheese.
How to cook with Doenjang?
Doenjang finds its way into all kinds of Korean dishes, but among the most well-known is doenjang jjigae, a quick and comforting Korean soup of little more than water, doenjang, cubed tofu, and any mix of cubed squash, potato, onion, and other vegetables. Doenjang is also one of the main ingredients in ssamjang, a very popular condiment used in Korean barbecue-style lettuce wraps and as a dip for raw, crunchy vegetables like cucumber and carrot sticks.
