  1. I just found this terrific new(to me)chile paste out of Thailand, a

  2. vegetarian chilli paste...cheng sim, comprised of soybeans, dried chili,

  3. red onion, garlic,salt, sugar, vegetable oil, in that order on the

  4. label, made by CAL Industries & Marketing Co. Ltd, in Bangkok, it is a

  5. really good chile paste, of course the first thing I did when I opened

  6. 8 ozs ... 3.49 Cdn

  7. taste first(discretion, etc!)then had a good taste...sweet to the

  8. tongue, hot to the back of the mouth, REAL hot when it hits the throat,

  9. and it lingers, and lingers, and half an hour later,was still

  10. there...most of the chile pastes that I have had before have had fish or shrimp paste incorporated into them, but for any vegetarians out there,

  11. this is the answer to hot vegan! So I had to try it out on a

  12. recipe...cant remember if I posted this one before, but here it is :
