I come from a Hungarian family, and we put this stuff (paprika paste) in everything. Soups, salad dressings, meatloaf, beans, meat seasoning/rub type things, and sandwiches.
I never really cared about it, but since becoming a vegetarian, I’ve realized its P O T E N T I A L
IT MAKES EVERYTHING TASTE GREAT. YOU ONLY NEED ONE PEA-SIZED SQUIRT AND EVERYTHING TASTES DELICIOUS. I MISSED SANDWICHES AFTER GIVING UP MEAT BUT NO! I EAT SANDWICHES WITH THIS STUFF, RADISHES, TOMATOES, LETTUCE, AND CARROTS AND IT’S BETTER THAN MEAT SANDWICHES! SO GOOD! I’VE EATEN FOUR TODAY!
It comes in regular and spicy!! The spicy tube has a flame on it, or it will say ’csipos’ to tell you it’s spicy! There’s also another tube that looks really similar but is orange and instead of just having paprika in it, it also has red peppers and spices and is the base for Hungarian goulash, which I have slowly started vegetarianizing for my personal enjoyment.
THE BEST PART? THE TUBES ARE ONLY LIKE $3!! I live in Canada, and I find them in Polish/Italian/other ethnicity specialty stores. They last FOREVER because you only need tiny amounts! AND (at least the red one) is both vegetarian and vegan!! Really, we’re covering all our bases!! You need to refrigerate it after you open it, but it lasts forever.
