Githeyo Mirus Sauce


Make a batch of this scotch bonnet pepper sauce and keep it in your fridge. It’ll make all your meals feel yummier and punchier, we promise. And there’s so much you can do with it; use it in your sandwiches, salads, marinades, stir fry dishes, the list is truly endless.

Makes: ¾ cup


  • 1 small onion
  • 2 scotch bonnet peppers (or 3 if you want it super-hot)
  • 2 large garlic cloves
  • 1/3 cup grated carrot
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tbsp. vinegar
  • 1 tbsp. lime juice
  • 2/3 cup water
  • ½ tsp. salt



  1. Dice the onion, slice the scotch bonnet pepper, mince the garlic and grate the carrot.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a pot and add the onion and scotch bonnet pepper. Fry until the onion becomes soft and then add the garlic and cook until it gets soft. (It might be a good idea to have some windows open when you cook this as the scotch bonnet pepper will make you cough a bit. Try not to breathe the pepper fumes in too much.)
  3. Add the carrot, vinegar (we used white vinegar, but you can use whatever vinegar you have on hand), lime juice, water and salt to the pot. Cook the mixture on low heat for 15 minutes.
  4. Let the mixture cool down and then transfer to the blender and blend until you get a smooth paste.
  5. Transfer to a glass jar and store in the refrigerator. It should keep well for around 2 to 3 weeks
