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!

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.
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.
