Gochujang (Go-Chu-Jang) is the Korean version of a red chili paste, it is like a slightly sweeter version of Sriracha. This Korean sweet and spicy sauce has become a new favorite condiment of mine. Watch out though, you might find it hard to put down. This sauce has inspired me to incorporate it into many dishes. Gochujang Dipping Sauce is a great raw veggie dip or fabulous with anything else you like to dip or sauce up, from Chicken Tenders to burgers! Try it on just about anything you like a little sweet and spicy kick with.
Oh Sweet Gochujang
Sweet and spicy go nicely together in this creamy dipping sauce. Gochujang sauce has a very subtle sweetness that pleases the palate for those who like at least a little kick in their dipping sauce. I love to enjoy gochujang straight on avocado toast, but this dipping sauce recipe gives you the pleasure of enjoying the flavor with fresh vegetables, an alternative to standard spreads to accompany sandwiches or with anything else you like to dip for an added kick.
