  • Author: Allison


You’ll find yourself craving this easy gochujang-style paste over and over again. It’s at once spicy, sweet, salty, and bursting with umami!


  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1/4 cup chickpea miso
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 12 tbsp tamari (start with 1 tbsp and add more to taste)
  • 4 medium garlic cloves
  • 1/21 tsp chili flakes (depending on how spicy you want it to be)


  1. Place all of the ingredients in an upright blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Transfer to an airtight glass jar and store in the refrigerator, where it will keep for at least two weeks
