Gochujang Tofu
"Go Chu Jang, a traditional Korean red pepper paste has a sweet and spicy taste and goes so well with any protein, veg or non veg. Gochujang generally contains red chili powder, fermented soybeans, rice wine, glutinous rice, and salt. This tofu dish is easy and is so very tasty. Make sure you’ve squeezed all the water out off the tofu. I usually place a towel on the tofu for about an hour so that all the water gets completely soaked up."
