So, what is coconut paste?

Coconut paste is a rich, creamy and versatile ingredient that's made from blending ground coconut flesh with water. This tropical ingredient is a staple in many Asian and Caribbean cuisines, and it's beloved for its fragrant aroma and nutty, slightly sweet flavor. It's often used as a base for curries, soups and stews, and it can also be used as a thickener in sauces and desserts. Coconut paste is also a great vegan and dairy-free alternative to cream or milk, making it a popular ingredient in plant-based cooking. Its smooth texture and complex flavor profile make it a must-have in any kitchen.
