Doenjang soybean paste is a core ingredient in Korean cuisine, with salty and rich, fermented flavours. Doenjang soybean paste is made from fermented soybeans and is similar to Japanese miso – though doenjang has a coarser consistency and stronger taste, which works well in thick soups and stews like Korean jjigae.

Doenjang soybean paste is commonly used together with gochujang - a red chilli soybean paste. Together they bring a kimchi-like hot, warm spice to Korean dishes. Serve doenjang soybean paste as a condiment with bi bim bap, or even just with a bowl of plain rice.

Ingredients: water, soybeans, wheat flour, salt, soybean paste (Doenjang), fermented soybeans, spirit, fermented soybean powder, L-glutamic acid, maltodextrin, onion mix. Contains allergens: soya and gluten (wheat)
