Doenjang-jjigae – Fermented Soybean Paste Soup — MODIFIED… Deliciously

so a few weeks ago, we made this soup.
it was pretty good.
last night i decided to make it again — with some modifications…
you know how i like to modify things…
so . . . . that’s what i did…
IT WAS AMAZING!!!!
SO MUCH BETTER THAN BEFORE!!!
🙂
yum

Recipe:

Ingredients:
1 sweet potato – peeled and cut into 1/2 inch cubes
1 large chicken breast – cut into bite size pieces
1/2 onion – cut into 1/2 inch pieces
1 medium zucchini – cut into 1/2 inch cubes
1 cup snow peas ((these are the flat peas normally used in asian dishes…not to be confused with snap peas, which are delicious too… but i don’t know if they’d work here))
1 red chili pepper chopped
5 cloves garlic, minced ((roughly 4 1/2 tsp)
2 1/2 cups water
**
1 – 20 oz can pineapple chunks
5 tbsp soybean paste
1 green onion stalk – chopped
1/2 cup cashew pieces (dry roasted, not salted)
2 inch bundle of rice noodles… i know that’s not very specific, but honestly – i just grabbed a handful, i think it was 2 inches in diameter and then i broke them in half…
1/2 cup chicken broth – or water
**

combine first 8 ingredients in large pot.
make sure that the water only just covers the ingredients. (if it takes less than 2 1/2 cups that’s fine…)

bring to a boil (should take about 10-15 minutes), add in the soybean paste, green onion, pineapples, and cashews and stir well. cook for another 10-15 minutes… stir occasionally. . . and then add in the rice noodles and broth (or water)… the rice noodles don’t take too long to cook – so let it go for about another 10 minutes so the flavors mix together well

serve and ENJOY!!!

I am me. that's really all there is to know. I am still figuring out exactly all that entails, but I think it takes a lifetime to do so...
