Hello everyone and welcome to another new episode of Nikoli's Kitchen! In today's episode, Wing Sauce is getting a little bit of a "glow up" and I talk about forcing myself to make the changes necessary to lead to a better life. I also talk about some format changes for the show going forward specific to the recipe breakdown.


Featured Recipes for this Episode

2 c Red Hot
1/2 c minced garlic
12 T unsalted butter, cut into chunks
1 tube 4.5 oz Cento tomato paste
1 C fresh basil, chopped
2 T fresh sage, chopped
1 c white wine
1 T olive oil
1 c chopped red onion
1 c chopped red pepper
1-2 t Salt 
1-2 T ground black pepper
1/4 c dark brown sugar

Drizzle olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat.
Add your onion and pepper and begin to saute, adding a sprinkle of salt and stirring periodically.
After 4-5 minutes or so, add your white wine.
Cover and reduce heat to low. Cook for 15-20 minutes or until the onions and peppers are very soft.
Remove the cover and return heat to mid. Cook until most of the liquid is gone, stirring periodically.
Make a space in the middle of your saucepan and add the basil, garlic, and sage. Stir to combine and cook for about a minute to start perfuming the base.
Add your tomato paste and cook for another minute.
Add the red hot and dark brown sugar.
Bring to a simmer, stirring everything together so it is well-combined.
Remove from the heat and add your butter.
Use an immersion blender or transfer this to a blender and blend until smooth.

Yield: Approx 4 cups
Calories per Serving: 66 calories per 2 T serving

Alternate recipes: Change the ratio for pepper to include some hotter peppers to your taste. You could easily add a jalapeño or habanero to this and it wouldn't drastically alter the recipe either.
