Koji sounds very interesting. It seems like you can use it with, well anything....
Dill pickles?

I've made a few fermented things, and generally enjoy them.

Probably the closest I've got to koji was with miso. If you take tofu, and slather it with miso, allow it to ferment a while (I did it on top of the fridge) the tofu becomes more like cheese, and takes on a good flavor.

Keep experimenting Bullwinkle!

I think pickling veggies is a traditional Japanese use for koji.

Also, I think you've already used koji.

From a google search "what is koji used for"...

-------
What makes koji so special is that it digests starches and proteins and breaks them down into sugars and amino acids. Because of this, it can be used as a starter (aka an ingredient that kickstarts the fermentation process) for a number of fermented Japanese food products, including mirin, sake, soy sauce, and miso.

The source of that text, and a lot more results...

and this from a google search of "shio koji pickles"...

-------
However, with shio-koji, you can eat pickles like salad. It is the very simple way. Place any vegetables in a plastic bag, knead it with shio-koji (10% of the amount of vegetables), seal and rest it in the refrigerator. After 30 minutes, the water comes out from the vegetables, and that makes moist pickles ready.
