Favourite pre-made dips and sauces for cooking
been very busy of late, too busy to even want to cook. So am looking for some easy, yet delicious options.
Wondering if anybody has any favourite ready-made, bottled sauces for cooking either meats or vegies? I live right near Trader Joes and Whole Foods so that would be convenient. The fresher, the better. Quick and easy is what I'm looking for. If it's baked, that's great too as I don't have to keep an eye on it as much.
Thanks ahead of time,
Patak's simmer sauces. I've seen them at the local supermarket and either Whole Foods or Trader Joe's may have them. Various Indian flavors -- just throw in meat, fish, and/or vegetables, toss it on the stove, and you're done.
From Trader Joe's, artichoke and merlot sauce. Light and tasty, goes well with pasta, chicken, shrimp, chicken sausage. Probably fish too, although I haven't tried that. I keep a jar in my pantry for quick dinners.
One of my Pantry MUST HAVES are cans of green thai curry. I get them at the Cambodian Supermarket in my neighborhood.
Just pout contents in the pot, add some thinly sliced chicken and cans of Bamboo Shoots and Baby Corn. Serve over Jasmine rice!
Left overs also keep good in the fridge and are good to take for lunch...
Trader Joe's Simmer Sauces are really good. I particularly like the curry sauces. They are in jars in the regular (non-refrigerated) grocery area of the store.
I also like their hummus (lots of variations) and their Tzatziki (cucumber/garlic/kefir dip) is really delicious. These are available in the refrigerated section of the store.
