Basbaas Foods


Sauces to Take Your Tastebuds on a Trip

From Hawa Hassan — author of In Bibi’s Kitchen and star of Food Network’s Spice of Life — our African-inspired sauces and condiments hit all the mouth feels: sweet, salty, acidic, spicy, and savory. Using a blend of fresh herbs, dried fruit, peppers, and spices our products are versatile, delicious, and plant-based.



Every order of Basbaas sauce contains one, two or three of each variety.

Basbaas sauces and condiments are inspired by heirloom recipes that embody the bold flavors of Africa with a uniquely American twist—dried fruits, herbs, and other flavors create a spicy, sweet and tangy offering.

The variety pack contains an equal number of jars of the Tamarind Date Sauce and Coconut Cilantro Chutney.

Basbaas is hand-crafted in small batches in the USA and the products are all-natural, gluten-free, no added sugar and vegan.

Our Story

Since 2015, we’ve been bringing the everyday flavors of the Continent to eaters everywhere. Our products started with the tastes of Somalia, the country our founder Hawa Hassan calls home.

As an immigrant, refugee and the second eldest of ten, Hawa moved to Seattle without her family at the age of 7. During her family's 15-year separation, Hawa treasured memories of being her mother’s helper, huddling around the stove, looking after the babies, cooking Canjeero, Bariis and Suugo. When she and her mother finally reunited, they relished cooking traditional recipes together.

It's this magical connection of love and culture that comes to life in Basbaas Sauce.
