Fresh Summer Tomato Sauce

The lush tomatoes of late summer can hardly be put to better use than in this lush sauce. Adapted from Pasta East to West.

Coconut-Peanut Sauce or Salad Dressing

This luscious mixture is as welcome on raw salads as it is to embellish cooked noodle, grain, or vegetable dishes. Adapted from Vegan Express.

Tahini-Yogurt Sauce

This cool sauce of tahini and nondairy yogurt is good in pita sandwiches, over tempeh, and as a dip for raw vegetables.

Vegan Sour Cream

Here’s an easy preparation that is also quite useful. I especially like this as a garnish for Southwestern-style dishes and cold soups. Adapted from Vegan Soups and Hearty Stews for All Seasons.

“Duck” Sauce

This instant sauce is perfect for spring rolls and dumplings. A little goes a long way.
