Six Simple Sauce Recipes

Six Simple Sauce Recipes

No matter the dish or the chef, it’s a hard-to-learn truth of cooking that a sauce can make or break a main course, so it’s always a good idea to have several recipes in your back pocket. Thankfully, PinchofYum has curated a list of sauce recipes that will compliment your various served dishes, regardless of flavor profile.

Roasted Red Pepper Sauce

This sauce is ideal for complimenting your next sangwich and bringing it to new, savory heights, and it does this while only requiring five ingredients. Fresh garlic, lemon juice, and roasted red peppers build a flavor base and then almonds and olive oil are added to create a silk-like texture that is similar to magic green sauce. This red pepper sauce is colorful, saly, and zesty enough to be placed atop a variety of Mediterranean dishes like vegetarian bowls or fries, as well as the following dishes:

  • Sandwiches.
  • Burgers.
  • Eggs
  • Salads.
  • Grilled chicken.
  • Grilled vegetable

Basic Garlic Butter Tomato Sauce

This sauce is a one-pot wonder that can definitely give a breakfast sandwich a much-needed flavor explosion, but it’s not for those who dislike seeds and tomato skins, as the recipe incorporates a lot of them. You start with approximately two cups of cherry tomatoes, olive oil, minced garlic cloves, balsamic vinegar, and butter. For a thinner product, it’s suggested that you add water to the pot, and it’s always a good idea to add fresh basil as well. It’s suggested that this sauce be placed on:

  • Breakfast Sandwiches
  • Flatbread
  • Pasta
  • Garlic Bread
  • Ravioli
  • Sandwich wraps

Honey Mustard Sauce

Leave the branded squirt bottle on the grocery-store shelf and begin making your own honey mustard sauce that’s catered to your particular taste with just five ingredients and five minutes of preparation and mixing time. This recipe produces a creamy, smooth dipping sauce that doubles as a simple, yet delicious dressing. It only requires you to whisk together organic honey, mayonnaise, dijon mustard, white distilled vinegar, and cayenne pepper.

  • Roasted sweet potatoes
  • Chicken tenders
  • Baked tofu
  • Colorful salad
  • Sandwich wrap
  • Baked potatoes

Chipotle Cashew Queso

This recipe goes beyond recipes that are mexican-inspired or tex-mex while being simple to make and vegan-friendly. You’ll need just five ingredients: chili powder, salt, chipotle peppers, cashews, and diced green chiles. It’s a great idea to simply dip a chip into your mixture or drip it on top of a sheet pan fajita gathering, as well as the following:

  • Roasted corn
  • Quesadillas
  • Grilled chicken
  • Rice bowls
  • Nachos
  • Fajitas

Cilantro Vinaigrette

Unless you have the gene that makes you taste soap when eating cilantro sprigs, this recipe is perfect for a summary salad while just having a handful of ingredients. You’ll need cilantro (of course), garlic, vinegar, olive oil, and salt alongside a pinch of red pepper and a splash of water. These ingredients are placed in the blender and ready to serve atop

  • Chicken tacos
  • Roasted potatoes
  • Green rice
  • Quesadillas
  • Cobb salad
  • Sweet corn

Sunshine Sauce

With such an attractive name, this recipe lives up to the uplifting, golden expectation while also being an ideal, complimentary sauce that’s ideal for meal prep. To prepare, you’ll need vinegar/lemon juice, olive oil, salt, dried oregano/basil, and garlic. The beauty of this recipe is that it is quickly concocted with pantry-friendly ingredients, though it’s always made better by adding fresh herbs. Place this tangy, sweet sauce on top:

  • Scrambled eggs
  • Grilled Chicken
  • Roasted Potatoes
  • Sandwich wraps
  • Chicken Fingers
  • French Fries

The above six recipes are ideal for those looking for a last-minute addition to their meal or a meticulously-planned compliment to be served in its own dish, and it’s made all the better by not necessitating too many ingredients.
