A combination of a ground, mashed, or pureed ingredient and some type of liquid. Some types of ingredients produce their own liquid to make the paste, while others require some type of liquid be added. The ingredients are mixed until they form a soft but thick textured substance. The paste will hold its shape somewhat. Some pastes are produced by moisture being removed from the ingredient and then mashing or pureeing until it is soft but thick. There are many types of foods that can be made into paste, such as fish, seafood, vegetables, beans, and nuts.
