Recipe Of The Day: Korean Soybean Paste Stew – Doenjang Jjigae with Buckwheat Soba Noodles

Last month I’ve shared with you this spicy comforting dish called Soondobu Jjigae. Doenjang Jjigae is pretty similar. To tell you in advance, my recipe is not the traditional kind. I wanted it to be full of vegetables and I also added my own twist – adding the Buckwheat Soba Noodles. Totally satisfying!

Procedure:

1. Slice all the vegetables in chunky pieces including the onions. Finely chopped the garlic and green chillies -if you want it spicy.

2. In a pot, fry the garlic and onions into the toasted sesame oil until the onions are translucent. This is the time where you also fry the fresh green chillies.

3. Pour 3 cups of stock and let it boil. Dissolve the doenjang paste into the stock. Let it boil again for 5 minutes.

4. Put all the vegetable into the pot and boil for 5 minutes.

5. Add the chilli powder, pepper and soy sauce to taste. Add the rest of stock if you want.

6. Pour in the rest of toasted sesame oil on top of the stew.

7. OPTIONAL: 2 big slices of chicken breast – I added chicken breast slices cooked in 1tbsp of toasted sesame oil, 2 gloves of garlic and pepper.
