Sauces elevate pretty much all vegan dishes. This is because a lot of plant-based meat substitutes and veggies are naturally what some would call…bland. I think this is why a lot vegan dishes get a bad rep. You can add this super easy 5 ingredient Korean chili sauce into your repertoire to elevate many of your dishes.
The main ingredient in this sauce which packs a lot of punch is the Gochujang, also known as Korean chili paste. The taste of this paste is pretty hard to describe, but I’ll give it my best shot.
It’s a thick, sweet, savory, and spicy paste made from rice. Many people describe it as somewhat funky, but I disagree. I think Gochujang has the perfect umami flavor, and I can’t get enough of it.
This easy 5 ingredient Korean chili sauce can be used to coat cauliflower like in my Fried Korean Cauliflower recipe. This would also be a great addition to any tofu dish, udon noodles, or any veggie dish. Absolutely irresistible.
