Ivorian Tomato Sauce Recipe

I like this recipe because it is a mild condiment to enjoy with poulet braisé, poisson braisé and attiéké. I also like this sauce because it comes from Grand Bassam, my dad’s region of the Ivory Coast.

Ivory Coast Tomato Sauce Recipe

This tasty sauce can be enjoyed with poulet braisé.

Country of Origin: Ivory Coast (Côte d’Ivoire)

Serves: 7


5 tomatoes, pureed

2 onions, pureed

1 Tbsp vegetable oil

1 Jumbo cube (or Maggi shrimp seasoning cube, if Jumbo is unavailable in your area), crushed


1. Combine all ingredients, except the Jumbo cube, in a deep saucepan.

2. Let the sauce cook for 30 minutes (or until the oil separates) over low heat, stirring regularly.

3. Add the Jumbo cube and mix well. Let the sauce cook for 5-10 minutes more, stirring regularly.

4. Let cool and serve with poulet braisé or other meat of your choice, Ivorian salad and attiéké.

Editors Note: This sauce is also good with spaghetti.
