Bean paste stew, 된장찌개

Bean paste stew, 된장찌개

I am putting up a photo of the food I made last week!

된장[Duenjang], the paste is made of fermented soy beans. It’s supposedly very good at increasing your immune system and fighting cancer.
It seems as though a lot of fermented food is excellent for fighting cancer, like Kimchi (김치).

You can add any veggies you want but I prefer putting ones of different colours such as red hot peppers, zuchini, carrots, radish, onions etc. I also added tofu, ginger, garlic, black pepper, pork meat and of course the bean paste(3 big spoons).
It is so flavorful and spicy that it gives you so much appetite. Korean people eat stew at almost every meal with rice (you could also eat it with noodles or sliced rice cake).
If you want to try making this dish and wonder about something, please message me 🙂
