If you haven’t tried it yet, Peri-Peri sauce is a popular African sauce made from a combination of African bird’s eye chilis blended with spices, lemons, onion, and garlic. While this dish isn't super spicy, it has a sour-spicy type taste and works well with kale and mustard seeds. Easy to make, it makes a great weeknight dinner or post-workout meal.
