Silky and creamy texture with sweet and spice will definitely brighten up your day with this non traditional spaghetti dish.
Gochujang, Gochujang or red chili paste is a savory, sweet, and spicy fermented condiment popular in Korean cooking. It is made from gochu-garu, glutinous rice, meju powder, yeotgireum, and salt. The sweetness comes from the starch of cooked glutinous rice, cultured with saccharifying enzymes during the fermentation process.
Mounting vegan butter adds to the silky texture. Are you brave enough to try this spicy spaghetti? Watch reels here
Cook noodles as directed in package. I could have cooked the noodles more in my situation. Use a timer, sometimes i get to over confident with this part and I end up with extra al dente noodles. I guess it is because I have been using Angel hair lately which only takes 3 minutes.
I consider it like my yoga practice, treat each one as if you were a beginner.
Prep aromatics, saute onions, garlic, shiitake in a pan, release the flavors of onions and garlic roughly around 7 minutes up until you notice some nice browning. Time to throw in Gochujang, be careful with this, it is strong and spicy, stir in for a couple of minutes or so. Throw in oat milk, feel free to adjust consistency and do not be to strict on measurements, these are merely guides.
Give it a little taste. Cut the spice with some maple syrup, find that sweet umami spot.
Stir in noodles
Combine noodles and sauce and give it a good mix to incorporate all the flavors. Mount with vegan butter and do your final adjustments. This wont need a lot of salt because the gochujang is very strong in flavor already.
Serve with love.
Familiarize your self in incorporating Gochujang in your cooking. It is packed with flavor and its strength can be managed by adding maple syrup or lemons. Experiment and learn, do not take anything personally and do not be attached to the fruits of your labor, just offer it up with the best of your skill and intention and set it free, but let the skills and lessons remain.
For this one, my noodles could be cooked a little more, and i could have used less Gochujang.
Stay mindful and insightful in the kitchen y'all
