Spicy Orange Habanero Sauce

  • Author: Jess Pryles



2 carrots

1/4 white or yellow onion, peeled

5 habanero peppers

zest & juice of 1 orange

1 clove garlic, peeled

1/4 cup vegetable oil

2 teaspoons agave nectar or honey

1/4 cup white vinegar

1/4 cup water

12 teaspoons salt, to taste


  1. Peel and chop the carrots into 1″ pieces.
  2. Place a medium sized saucepan full of water over high heat and bring to boil. Add the carrots and onion and boil for 5-7 minutes. Add the peppers and boil a further 5 minutes.
  3. Drain, then add the carrot and onion to a high sided container for blending. Place the peppers on a board and remove the stems and seeds, then add to the container. You may want to use gloves for this stage to avoid chili fingers!
  4. Add in the orange zest & juice, garlic, oil, agave, vinegar, water and salt. Blend until smooth and velvety.
  5. Taste the sauce, and add more salt if necessary. If you prefer a thinner sauce, you can add additional water 1/4 cup at a time until you reach a desired consistency.
  6. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to two weeks.
