1. Fresh Puttanesca 
This no-cook spicy tomato sauce is flavor-packed with anchovies, capers, green olives and crushed red pepper.

2. Smoky Eggplant Sauce 
Store-bought baba ghanoush and canned chickpeas flavor this easy sauce. It’s creamy, lemony and delicious.

3. Sun-Dried Tomato and Scallion Cream Sauce 
Umami-packed sun-dried tomatoes give intense flavor to this silky sauce.

4. Avocado Chimichurri 
This take on the classic Argentinean herb sauce includes chunky avocado. It’s great with grilled meats.

5. Yogurt-Tahini Sauce 
Blending spiced tahini sauce with whole-milk yogurt makes for an extra-creamy sauce. Serve it with lamb shwarma.

6. Spicy Tomato Sauce 
Paprika, cumin and ginger lend their aromatic alchemy to a simple tomato sauce.

7. Dill-Parsley Sauce 
This vibrant green sauce is terrifically fresh-tasting and versatile—have it with fish or pasta, or drizzle it over a Caprese salad.
