They run the gamut from traditional sausage ragu to Thai peanut, gorgonzola chive butter, all-American barbeque, coconut lemon, parmesan leek, cheesy cashew garlic, and Meyer lemon spinach. Every recipe is accompanied by a quick-reference chart showing the best base combinations of protein and vegetable. The struggle to make imaginative, flavourful weeknight meals is over. With a few of these sauces stashed away in the freezer, a great meal can be topped off in minutes.
