6 Best Simmer Sauces For A Delicious Weeknight Meal In Minutes

Simmer sauces are the ultimate kitchen life hack, just unscrew, unload and add your favorite meat, fish, legumes or veggies. After a couple of minutes of bubbling away, people are going to think you’ve been sweating over the stove for hours (that’s because these talented makers did so you don’t have to). Here are six simmer sauces (in no particular order) that we are not going to simmer down about.

From The Maker:

Maffé or Domoda are interchangeable names for the national dish of The Gambia (also known as the smiling coast of West Africa) — our Founders’ native land. Though peanut stew is a regional specialty in West Africa and the recipe and name will change depending on the country you are in, the Gambian version is especially esteemed.

The slightly sweet, spicy and tangy flavors of this sauce balance the rich and nutty peanut flavor. We use a generous amount of fresh ginger and garlic for extra boldness, fiery habaneros for a little heat, fresh lime juice for some tang, and a little sugar for a touch of sweetness. We then simmer, gently, in a rich peanut and tomato base, ideal for creating many unexpected and tasty flavors.

If you are new to African cuisine, this sauce is a perfect introduction. Simmer covered with spinach, black-eyed peas and okra for a vegan replica of a dish from The Gambia called Domoda Bissap. Add a dollop of Kaani sauce and savor it just like a local.

Thanks for reading! :) If you enjoyed it, share this page. It would mean a lot because it helps other people discover the makers.
