The Best Vegan Sauce Recipes

From Japanese chili oil, to a creamy Italian vegan 'carbonara' – to fiery Buffalo sauce - you can get creative with your veggie-friendly dishes. Whether you're vegetarian, vegan – or taking the Meatless Monday thing on a little test drive – the sauce you use can make or break your dinner.

Homemade All Purpose Tomato Sauce

This southern Italian classic is naturally gluten-free and oh so comforting. I've been known to use this as a pizza sauce, a dipping sauce for fried zucchini sticks – and the best sauce for eggplant parm (when I'm indulging in Parmesan cheese).

Duck Sauce

Homemade duck sauce is the perfect balance of sweet, savory and tangy for egg rolls and wonton strips.

Hot Sichuan Chili Oil

Chili oil is a blend of spices that powers up stir fries, noodle dishes, and anything else.

Vegan Bolognese Sauce

Bolognese sauce is a meaty vegan version of tomato sauce with mushrooms, onion, carrot and bell pepper, and the secret is getting the texture right by pulsing a portion of it in a blender and adding it back to the tomato sauce.

Restaurant Style Teriyaki Sauce

Easy vegan sauce with soy sauce, mirin, garlic, sugar and cornstarch.
