Maffé Sauce

West African fast food.

It's rare to find a jarred sauce that actually tastes great. Even harder to find one that's as different as this. When it happens I want to shout out the good news to everyone I know.

Maffe sauce is a regional specialty in West Africa, a blend of fresh ginger, garlic, peanuts, chiles, lime juice, and tomatoes. It tastes amazing. Made by Jainaba Jeng, a Gambian expat. "It's known by many different names depending on where you are," Jainaba told me. "It's one of those sauces you make on Sunday, then use in dishes all week long."

It's easy to add into your dinner rotation. Try simmering chicken, pork, fish, or tofu in the maffe and serve over rice, couscous, or pasta.
