Healthy Pre-Packaged Sauces, Spreads, And Sprinkles That You Have To Try!

Healthy Pre-Packaged Sauces, Spreads, And Sprinkles That You Have To Try!

I do love making a meal or snack from scratch, but sometimes I just don’t have time to be whipping sauces or blending spices. That’s when I turn to my kitchen arsenal of pre-fab goodness to take pastas, salads, sammies and more from tepid to tantilizing in moments! Check out some of my fave plant-based mother’s little helpers below!

  1. Delicious & Sons Organic Basil & Lemon Aioli

    I don’t know who Delicious is, but let’s just say they are aptly named cuz this spread is soooo good! I tried it yesterday warmed over vegan gnocchi (more on that yumminess later!), and loved the taste so much I used the aioli today in my tempeh spinach sandwich. I get the distinct impression that this spread elevates almost anything to artisanal tasting goodness.

  2. Vegan Magic Parmageddon

    I am a big fan of nutritional yeast and vegan parms, but I'm super loving this one as it doesn’t contain any nuts making it school friendly and the perfect addition to my LO’s pasta lunch. The perfect topping for pastas, salads and grain bowls.

  3. Agora Melizanosalata

    Apologies to my non-toronto friends, but this one is a local treat only. If you get the chance to stop by the queen west cafe, make it a must to pick up this delicious dip made of eggplants, garlic, walnuts and parsley - dip it with some house made pita or toss it with some warm pasta for an authentically greek tasting treat.

  4. Manitoba Harvest Hemp Heart Toppers Maple & Cinnamon

    These beauties top up the nutritional value of my son’s weekend waffles, yoghurt bowls, and granola. With 10g or protein and 10g of omegas per serving they’re an easy way to make sure treats are healthy and tasting good!
