So, what is soy bean paste?

Soybean paste is a savory condiment made by fermenting cooked soybeans with salt, water, and a type of mold called koji. It has a rich, earthy flavor and a thick, smooth texture that makes it a versatile ingredient in many Asian cuisines, particularly in Korean, Japanese, and Chinese dishes. Soybean paste is often used as a base for soups, stews, marinades, and dipping sauces, and it can also be spread on vegetables or meat for grilling or roasting. It's a great source of protein, fiber, and minerals, and it's a popular vegan and vegetarian substitute for meat-based sauces and broths.
