Sometimes all it takes is one ingredient to elevate an otherwise ordinary dish. That ingredient could stand alone or be part of a whole–like Herbs de Provence to roasted poultry or green mango to a West Indian fish curry. When you’re eating it, you just know. I’ve discovered that everlasting ingredient for possibly every Asian dish I plan to make from now on. Black Bean Chili Paste. It’s so freaking good I could spread it on toast and eat it for breakfast! This is Chinese Stir-fry Noodles enhanced with the best chili bean paste I’ve ever had.
