Our Favorite Veggie Bowl Sauces
If there is one thing that has made eating plant-based easier, it’s the variety of sauces that Andrew and I add to our dishes. This applies to many different recipes, but for salad and veggie bowls, a.k.a buddha bowls, hippie bowls, power bowls, the sauce is a game changer. It keeps things fresh and you can get really creative. A veggie bowl comes in many forms, but generally refers to a bunch of veggies either roasted, grilled or sauteed and served over rice or noodles, alongside beans, lentils, avocados, nuts and seeds. Or it can be just veggies. So many styles and options. We eat them for lunch mostly, but once a week we make one up for dinner.
We’ve been cooking plant-based with Andrew’s mom a lot recently and she told us our use of different sauces has taught her so much about a simpler approach to plant-based cooking. This weekend, a friend also told me she’s been wondering about the veggie bowls we post and asked me for some sauce ideas. So, we decided we should finally share some of these recipes.
So, to spice up your veggie bowls, here are a few of our favorite sauces you may want to check out! Use these as a jumping off point to make your own variations as well.
