    Gochujang Mackerel Rice Bowl

    Canned Mackerel costs slightly more than Canned Tuna, but both are really handy items to stock in the pantry. My husband says Canned Mackerel smells bad, but I love it. Canned Mackerel makes delicious Rice Bowl dishes. ‘Curry Mackerel Don’ and ‘Miso Mackerel Don’ are just a few example. Here is another Rice Bowl dish …

    Vegan Nikuman (Soy Protein Buns)

    My daughter asked me to make a Vegetarian version of Nikuman (Steamed Pork Buns). I challenged myself to make a Vegan version using Soy Protein.

    Agedashi Tofu with Gochujang Sauce

    The other day my daughter cooked a Korean dish called ‘Tteokbokki’. The sauce was too sweet for me, but I thought that the sauce would be good with ‘Agedashi Tofu’ (aka ‘Agedashidōfu’). I made a similar sauce that is much less sweet. The spicy & garlicky sauce is totally different from the traditional Japanese sauce …

    Gochujang Chicken

    I heard someone tried to cook my ‘Baked Hot Chicken Wings’ using Gochujang for the sauce. Gochujang is a Korean sweet & spicy chilli paste. Gochujang version of ‘Baked Hot Chicken Wings’ sounded very interesting and I tried to cook it. I liked the sauce I made, and the Chicken Wings were delicious, but I …

    Spicy Pork & Potato Soup

    This is a very simply soup. Naturally you can add other Vegetables and Mushrooms. To add the spiciness, I used Gochujang (Korean Spicy Miso). I am not very good with Chilli, but 1 tablespoon, which seems a lot to me, was a good amount that created enjoyable spiciness. Makes 2 Servings Ingredients 1 to 2 …

    Gochujang & Sesame Salad Dressing

    This is my Korean inspired salad dressing. Fresh salad vegetables such as Lettuce and Cucumber, and cooked vegetables such as Spinach and Carrot, are all suitable with this dressing sauce. Taste the sauce and alter the flavour to suit your taste. You may wish to add extra Gochujang, but 1 teaspoon is maximum for me. …

    Spicy Beef Udon with Gochujang

    Gochujang (Korean Spicy Miso) that I bough to cook a Korean dish has been sitting in the fridge for nearly a year. I wanted to use it up, so I cooked this ‘Bulgogi’ inspired stir-fried Beef Udon for my lunch today, and it was so delicious. I must write down how I cooked it. If …
