I’m sure most of you know what hummus is. It’s a Middle Eastern chickpea/garbanzo bean paste that has been all the rage for a minute now. Gochujang, on the other hand, is not so well known. It is a Korean red pepper paste.
It’s basically the new Sriracha.
Except better, because it has such a depth of flavor while still maintaining its heat.
I predict Gochujang will be on the tip of everyone’s tongue soon, and by then you can feed your inner hipster and say, “Oh, Gochujang? Yeah, I knew about it before it was popular. Have you had Gochujang hummus before? No? Oh man, you’re missing out.” Say this as you sip your extra-hoppy IPA and adjust your non-prescription eyeglasses.
