    Vegan Courtney's Note:

    From the book "Real Vegetarian Thai." It's one of my new favorites--I put a tablespoon of it in just about everything I stir-fry. If you're not a spicy fan, you can turn down the heat by adding less of the chili sauce.

    • 1/2 cup white vinegar

      EDIT: I refrigerated the remainder of this sauce overnight and it had the consistency of jelly the next morning...this would be an awesome variation on cream cheese and spicy jelly! Can't wait to try! This sauce is AMAZING! I was on the hunt for a sweet and spicy thai-style sauce like you get as a side with different appetizers at most thai restaurants we've been to and this was just about it! I liked that you could reduce this to be more of a sauce or you could leave it thin and use it for dipping. Easy, easy, easy and I always have the ingredients on hand. Served over thin sliced chicken breast, matchstick zucchini and white rice for a DELICIOUS meal. DH and I both agree that we'll always need a batch of this on hand...what about reduced well then served over cream cheese? Yum!

      I loved this sauce but modified it ever so slightly by using garlic chili sauce by Lee Kum Kee instead of regular chili sauce. I wasn't patient enough to let the sugar get really syrupy. This was a great sauce for my fried tofu. Yum!
