Gochujiang Peanut Noodles

Updated: Apr 25, 2021

The newsflash is: gochujang and peanut butter. Did you hear me? Let me say it again.

Gochujang and peanut butter. Gochu..what?? Gochujang is a Korean red chili paste made from chilis, fermented soy beans, salt and sticky rice. It has been around for centuries and is taking the culinary world by storm. Experts say it is going to be the next srircha. It has got a sweet smoky heat that adds an earthy richness to almost anything you add it to. This is one for the chilli lovers. This is the perfect summertime meal – easy and bursting with flavour. Hungry friends, meet this vegan gochujiang peanut noodles! If you like quick and simple dinners then this recipe is calling your name! These spicy, slurpy noodles are so easy to throw it barely counts as a recipe. It is a Korean-twist on Thai peanut noodles and Japanese ramen. Personally, I love what happens when two or more cuisines meet, combining flavours, textures, and ingredients to create something quite special!



Just recently a noodle restaurant opened up about 4 minutes from our house and I’ve been hooked on their new-ish spicy Korean mushroom noodles. Now I’m not calling this a copycat recipe, but it was definitely inspired by that restaurant menu item and it has a lot of the same flavours. It is kind of crazy delicious if you’re into that spicy Asian noodle bowl type of thing which I’m definitely 100 percent into. I am dreaming of summer BBQ’s. And guys, I am 110% dreaming of this fusion dish, which takes all of 10 minutes to whip up and is hands down one of my favourite go-to recipes on this blog. I have yet to make it for a BBQ, but the endless combination of fresh produce and refreshing, lighter fusion flavours make it an instant recipe-requested hit at any event your little heart desires/requires. And right now, my heart desires a lot of summer BBQ’ing before the summer whisks itself away again.



Then there’s the peanut sauce. You guysss, I’m a sauce person. I love sauce. All the sauce! Extra sauce! I can’t always say this is the best idea, but in the case of this recipe, have the extra sauce. So serious. In fact, I highly recommend making extra. You can thank me later.
