These grain bowl sauces are designed for prepping on weekends and drizzling on everything from quinoa to roasted vegetables throughout the week.
Batch-prepping sauces and dressings is the ultimate power move for any home cook. A bowl of rice and vegetables may not be much on its own, but add a fun sauce, and you’ve got yourself a complete meal.
I like to keep one or two sauces/dressings stashed in the fridge during the week, which really speeds things up when you’re throwing together quick lunches and weeknight meals like salads and grain bowls.
The seven make-ahead grain bowl sauces rounded up below are inspired by global flavors and can be drizzled on everything from salads and roasted veggies; to farro, rice, and quinoa bowls; to soba noodles and beyond. Let me know which one’s your fave!
