5 Essential Condiments

1. Soy Sauce
Add a few drops to brothy soups or steamed vegetables. Stir into mayonnaise for sandwiches.


2. Tomato Paste

Squeeze into sauteed onions and cook for 30 seconds before adding other ingredients to a stew.


3. Grainy Mustard

Whisk into oil and vinegar to make a salad dressing, or mix with stock and cream for a luscious sauce.


4. Harissa

Rub this fiery Tunisian chile paste on meat before roasting, spread on grilled cheese, or stir into seafood stews.


5. Anchovy Paste

Add to salad dressing, marinara sauce, or ragus. Or use in place of Asian fish sauce in Thai curries.
