Gochujang Miso Tahini Sauce

Creamy, nutty, spicy + umami – this is delish!  I love it with everything from Botanical Bowls to a dip for crudites, roasted veg and dressing for fusion-style salads.  Food with benefits ~ gut-healthy fermented miso + gochujang!

    Spices, herbs and foods that are grounding, warming and calming with earthy rich tones and flavours.  These foods help the body relax are generally rich in anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial nutrients.

Gochujang Miso Tahini Sauce


MIX, whisk, stir – all ingredients together in a bowl.    Add water until you get a dipping sauce-style consistency. If you want a thinner sauce add more water; if you need it to be super smooth, blend it.


TASTE and adjust – spiciness with more gochujang; add acidity to balance the savoury umami flavours with rice vinegar.


SERVE over greens, roasted vegetables, grains + greens, salads, Crunchy Bean sprout Salad or veggie burgers. Use as a dip for crudites.


STORE in a glass jar in the fridge.

SWAP tahini for nut butters – you will need more liquid


SWAP rice vinegar for lime juice or apple cider vinegar


SWAP Gochujang for other chile paste – the flavour will vary quite a lot.  If you like spicy, umami foods and have never had Gochujang it is definitely worth trying.
