Suggestions on calming down heat in red sauce ?

Made a red sauce that is too spicy for my kids? How can I save it or use it?

Hey Lara! Some cream or butter should tone down the spice.

Should have added, but be dairy, gluten, egg, nut and soy free

I would make another batch of the sauce and dilute the spicy sauce.

Sugar will to a great extent counteract it, and the kids might approve, but I wouldn't really recommend it.

Or cook some potatoes in the sauce.
Then remove and serve them to adults.
Then taste sauce and see If it is tamed enough forctge childrens taste.
The potatoes will (as in patates bravas) have absorbed some of the heat.

Some olive oil will let the heat dissipate across your palate (and theirs) more readily, diminishing its perception.

Try oat milk or, if you can find it, oat cream/yogurt. It will act like the dairy and neutralize the heat. Coconut yogurt might work too, but test it on a small batch to ensure you’re not making coconutty sauce!
