Review: Naija Potent Peanut Sauce

Odeiga House - Naija Sauce Range - Potent Peanut Stew

The folks at Odeiga House sent us a couple of jars of their African and Caribbean cooking sauce to review. The sauce is available at Manchester's Unicorn Grocery and branches of Sainsbury's. The peanut sauce is a Gambian speciality made with tomato, garlic and peanut paste:



Whilst the sauce is typically used to make a stew of lamb or chicken, it makes a good vegan stew with mixed veg. The simplest way to use it is to make a covered casserole and cook it in the oven. The instructions are focused on microwave cooking, which we found a bit odd.


The resulting stew is quite curry-like, being rich and spicy. The spice heat is on medium to high end...it does live up to it's 'potent' moniker. The peanut flavour is not overpowering, but gives the stew a nutty taste. The stew is normally served with rice or cous cous.

The Good: Tasty high protein sauce
The Not-so-good: The Cooking instructions are not very clear
