Sauces

Sauces are absolutely essential to making tasty recipes. For example, Chimichurri Sauce can be used to enhance the flavor of any grilled meat. But, it can also be mixed in with Pasta, instead of Pesto. Or, it can be used as a base for gourmet pizza, in the place of tomato sauce. And that’s just one sauce!

If you’re here looking for Middle Eastern or Mediterranean recipes, you may be more interested in my Tahini Paste recipe. With it, you can make Tahini Sauce, Hummus, Homemade Granola, and even Tahini Fudge! Do you see what I mean? These versatile Sauces can be used in preparing various delicious recipes.

So once you find a sauce you might want to try, think of ways to use it in your favorite recipes. Alternatively, do a quick search on my blog to find other recipes that have it listed as an ingredient in the recipe.
