A Jerk Addiction – Awesome Jerk Sauce

This is a follow-up post from my Jerk-tofu recipe. If you’ve tried making the jerk-tofu, then now you should have a little pot of left-over marinade sitting waiting to be used!

Jerk Tofu and the amazing sauce..

Now, you don’t have to have made the tofu in order to make this sauce. If you don’t have left-over marinade, you can just add a few more spices/garlic cloves/ ginger chunks to this sauce, and you’ll get pretty much the same effect!
Or, take a look at the marinade recipe, whizz it up and just chuck it straight into the pot!
I honestly don’t know why it’s taken me this long to try my hand at Jamaican cooking. I’ve had several pleads to make this kind of food more often, so I think it’s safe to say it’s a hit!
If you try it, let me know what you think!

    Ingredients

    Instructions

    1. Chop up your carrots, onions and celery, and saute on a medium heat for a few minutes in the olive oil, until the onion starts to turn translucent. Between 2-3 minutes.
    2. Whilst the veg is sauteing, finely chop your garlic and ginger. Add to the veg and continue to saute for another minute.
    3. If you're using up the left-over marinade (Or if you've made a batch to add to this sauce) - pop this in the pan now, along with your spices. Turn the heat up a bit, and fry the sauce with the veg. This helps to take the raw "edge" off of the spices! Fry for a minute or two.
    4. Next, add the tins of tomatoes, the water, tomato paste and agave. Let the sauce simmer until the veg is cooked through, and thickened.
    5. Taste your sauce - is there enough garlic for your tastes? Enough spices? Is it sweet/salty enough? Season to your tastes! Serve with whatever tastes your fancy! Rice, chips, tofu, seitan.. the choices are endless! Enjoy!
