The past few days we can really feel the days are getting shorter now. The mornings are darker and the evenings after work the sun is setting much earlier. Soon it will be time to turn the clocks back in the states. Luckily these shorter days here are still fairly mild temperature wise. We are able to get away with a light fleece or light scarf and sweater while being out and about.
Today we got home from our touristy weekend and decided that we needed to warm our souls. What better way than to make some soup! Soup is just so comforting in the fall and winter months. Did we mention this soup is not just any soup… Hands down its one of our all time favorite Korean soups. Think of this soup as Korean comfort in a bowl.
Doenjang Jjigae 된장찌개
We simply cannot help ourselves, we see this savory little number on any menu and ordering it becomes a MUST!
It’s sweet, its spicy, it’s just perfect, not to mention it’s incredibly good for you too.
We’ve been told that most foreigners are turned off by the smell and sight of the traditional soup. We really must be an exception to the rule.
So what is the soup made of? Mom, Dad, are you ready for this? Fermented Korean soybean paste.
ENJOY YOUR DOENJANG JJIGAE!
