Roasted Tomato Chili Sauce

The Roasted Tomato Chili Sauce is excellent for dipping barbecue meat and Lao sticky rice The Thai and Lao method would be to barbecue the vegetables over an open fire or coal. In my video, you'll see that I've broiled the vegetables in an oven. The roasted tomato chili sauce is the gourmet version of the Classic Thai / Lao Hot Sauce.

Vegetarian Recipe: Roasted Tomato Chili Sauce:
3 chilies
2 garlic cloves with skin
¼ of a whole onion
¼ of whole red pepper
1 tomato
2 sprigs of cilantro
2 sprigs of green onions
2-3 tablespoons fish sauce

Place chilies, garlic with skin, onion, red pepper and tomato in a roasting pan. Broil under high heat for about 15-20 minutes. Remove from oven. Remove chilies and garlic from the pan and flip over the other vegetables. Broil again for another 15 more minutes. Remove from the oven and allow vegetables to cool.

In a Thai / Lao Mortar & Pestle Set, add garlic without the skin, and add chilies. Pound with a pestle until chilies and garlic are smooth. Add onions and pound until smooth. Remove skin from red pepper, cut into pieces, and pound until smooth. Remove skin from tomato, cut into pieces, discard the core, and pound until smooth. Add chopped cilantro and green onions. Add 2 to 3 tablespoons of fish sauce. Mix the ingredients until all are incorporated.

Welcome to Thai & Lao Vegetarian Recipe

I create the Thai & Lao Vegetarian Recipe in order to group all vegetarian recipes into one blog. I must stress that these recipes are not vegan because most Thai and Lao dishes include fish sauce as an ingredient.

My main blog is www.thai-laos-food.blogspot.com but because Blogger does not have a category feature where I can group my food recipes, I decided to create another account with Blogger.

Now you can view all the Thai and Lao Vegetarian Recipes from this blog.
