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!

Method

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 more acidity to balance the pungent umami flavours with rice vinegar.

 

SERVE over greens, roasted vegetable, 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.
