“Soy allergy- what to eat?!”

  1. Hello- my 14 month old was diagnosed with a soy allergy... Since he was 12 months I basically stopped cooking with kangjang & dwaenjang, even gochujang. I feel so bad for my Korean husband! I also feel bad for my 3 year old who loves Korean food; but I cannot risk my 2nd born's health & possibly life just for food.
    What do allergic Koreans eat?? Is there some kind of recipe besides jajang pap (he's also allergic to eggs- so that means no to most noodles... And no shellfish, dairy or nuts). I hate him not being able to have Korean Food! If there are any ideas- I would greatly appreciate it! 😃

  2. Hi,

    For his other allergies try vegan stores, Loving Hut for example is great, they have to no dairy, eggs, shellfish, etc. As for a replacement for soy and soy paste here are a couple of sites that maybe helpful. You might try this site

    http://www.southrivermiso.com/store/pg/61-About-Miso-About-Miso.html

    It is for miso, but not made out of soy. Miso is basically bean paste anyway, so this should work.

    Hope this helps.

    Oh yeah, Loving Hut has a website and they deliver and have many stores. I am not sure where you live but there could be one nearby. They are where I get my ice cream made with coconut milk.

  3. Thank you so much for that link! We do shop at a variety of stores; Whole Foods & Trader Joes are some of the places. I will have to get some Of this misoto try! ;)

  4. Dangmyeon and somyeon, two types of commonly used Korean noodles, do not contain egg or soy.
