Sacha-ish Savoury Chili Condiment (formerly Project Lava) is developed in collaboration with Pay Chen, who is a familiar face and voice on TV and radio stations across the country, and writes about food and lifestyle for some of Canada's premier publications. Pay is Taiwanese-Canadian, and Sacha-ish is inspired in part by her some of her favourite food memories of hot pot where dipping sauces like shāchá jiàng were always a feature at the dinner table.
Expect earthy, salty-sweet, umami packed flavours that will add some depth with a little tangy, spicy twist to whatever you're making!
As with all the products we make at Zing, we're not reinventing the wheel. This is not a traditional recipe for Sacha sauce (which, for the record: doesn't need an "update") but is inspired by it's flavours, some of Pay's favourite food memories, plus ingredients and techniques popular across other regions of South/South East Asia to create something familiar, but new.
Try it with: use Sacha-ish to coat your favourite protein (or to top a steak!), as a dip for everything from chips to dumplings, for the best veggie stir fries and noodles, in your eggs, or as the ultimate sandwich spread! Some of our test kitchen users even used it as a vegan nduja!
