Vegetarian Chili Paste
This is a very good vegetarian chili paste (on the left). We use it all the time and happily recommend it. It contains no shrimp or shrimp paste or any preservatives or MSG. It can be used as a seasoning/flavouring for most any Thai vegetarian dish and we use it specifically in vegetarian/vegan versions of Tom Yum soup. It is the same manufacturer as the Chili Paste that we use for non-veg Tom Yum (on the right).
It is not spicy at all (1% dried chili) and can even be used straight from the jar as a dipping sauce. Almost 30% soy sauce so works well as a seasoning.
