Korean Doenjang Jjigae (Chigae) Recipe

(serves 4)



8 cups water

1½ cups dried baby anchovies, rinsed

5-6 tablespoons Korean soybean paste (doenjang or Japanese miso paste)

1 tablespoon Korean hot bean paste (gochugaru)

3 large potatoes, peeled and cut into bite size pieces

1 medium onion, diced

1 medium zucchini, cut into thick slices

6 fresh shiitake mushrooms, stems removed

1 small green chili, seeds removed and chopped

8 ounces soft silken tofu, cut into bite size pieces

1 stalk spring onion, cut into short lengths



How to make Korean soybean paste soup:

1. Boil water in a large soup pot, and add the anchovies. Let it come to a rapid boil over high heat for about 4-5 minutes. Remove anchovies from the stock.
