Must-have sauces and pastes

I am "going vegan" along with Kenji (although I'm doing this through the end of March)... and I have a whole bunch of ethnic recipes I want to try. I would love to learn how to use the various sauces and pastes of the world, whether I purchase them or make them myself. What I would like to know is - what are your favorite/go-to/must-have sauces and pastes? Thank you in advance for your input!
