Smile Found amazing vegan sauce

Hey guys,

I recently became a vegan due to some health issues, and I've been absolutely devastated since Sriracha isn't vegan :(

Absolutely heart broken, I have been eating all my food without the delicious spicy-tanginess of Sriracha. However, I recently discovered a sweet alternative! It's this korean based sauce that has a spicy, yet smokey taste that is just as yummy as Sriracha! Best part: It's perfect for gluten-free eaters and vegans like myself. Give it a try!

The good news for you, my broken hearted friend, is that Huy Fong brand Sriracha sauce IS, in fact vegan!!

What in Sriracha makes none vegan?

Because the brand Huy Fong is vegan here in Sweden.

Ok, I'll bite; what's the sauce? Are you talking about gochu-jang?

I was assuming so but it's not in the least smoky

And not all brands are gluten free

I have heard of this gochu-jang, but can't seem to find it. How is it packaged, or brand. or is in bulk or tubs?
Thanks, Eric Austin Tx.

If you have an Asian market that has a Korean section you should be able to find gochujang (paste) and gochugaru (ground chili).

Would you please explain to me the difference between "ground chili paste" and "ground chili"?

Gochujang is a fermented paste made of ground chile peppers, soybeans, rice, salt and a sweetener.

I'm pretty sure "jang" means sauce in Korean

Gochugaru is just dried ground chile powder
