So, what is soybean paste?

Soybean paste is a staple ingredient in many Asian cuisines, especially in Korean, Japanese, and Chinese cooking. It is made from fermented soybeans and has a rich, savory flavor that adds depth and complexity to dishes. Soybean paste comes in different varieties, ranging from light to dark, depending on the length of the fermentation process. This versatile ingredient is used in stews, soups, marinades, and dipping sauces, and is often used as a substitute for miso paste. Soybean paste is also a good source of protein and can be a healthy addition to a balanced diet.
