Favourite sauce recipes?
Posted Sunday, November 24, 2013 at 10:16 AM

Hi all,

What are everyone's favourite, go-to sauce recipes? I find that's often the hardest thing for me - especially during the week when I'm tired and don't have as much time.

It's easy enough to prepare the 'base' for a meal: brown rice, quinoa, or some other whole grain, then maybe lentils or some kind of beans. And then of course lots of veggies.

But where I sometimes run into trouble is figuring out what topping I want for the whole meal. It's easy to make one thing all the time and then get bored with it.

I tend to either go with some kind of marinara sauce or sometimes I'll make some variation on a tahini dressing (usually with tahini, lemon juice, garlic, etc).

What kinds of sauces does everyone like to use on their meals? Let's start a list that everyone can use when they need inspiration! Smile

I'm a LAZY cook. So I tend to eat stews with a lot of curry, hot peppers, and vegie broth. Or I will make "cheese" sauce for pasta with nutritional yeast and almond milk. And when I'm super tired, I'll just open up a can of fire-roasted tomatoes.

For quick meal when you are too tired to cook, Mexican style salsa from a jar tops a burrito filled with your choice of beans, left over chili, etc., spices up left over rice, & is an ingredient for making fresh guacamole as a topping for a tostada or a salad.

Salsa's a good topping for a baked potato too. I throw some beans on the potato, salsa and leftover veggies for lunch.
