So, what is soya bean paste?

Soya bean paste, also known as soybean paste or soy paste, is a traditional ingredient widely used in Asian cuisine. It is made by fermenting soybeans with salt and other ingredients, resulting in a thick, savory and umami-rich paste with a complex flavor profile. Soya bean paste comes in various forms, ranging from light-colored and mild to dark and robust. It is a versatile ingredient that can be used as a base for soups, stews, marinades, and dipping sauces, adding depth and complexity to any dish. Soya bean paste is also a good source of protein and minerals, making it a nutritious addition to any diet.
