I think sauces can make any meal taste great! Store bought sauces can be expensive, full of low quality ingredients and it’s easy to run out of them. So this is why I love making my own at home. Today I’m making 3 delicious fat free sauces that can be paired with just about anything. I don’t usually make fat free sauces like this, but since summer is coming and i’ve been working on leaning out a bit, being able to dump a bunch of delicious sauce on my food without a ton of extra calories is really helpful.
Let me know what you think of the sauces in the comments down below!

I've been wanting to make more oil-free sauces/dressings, so thanks!
(I think the Ginger Garlic Dressing might end up being my fav)
Can't wait to try these! I never thought of adding vegetable broth. Thanks for sharing.
Love these recipes, thank you for sharing! I’m always looking for quick and tasty dressings and sauces! And so healthy! I cut out all refined oil but I still use a tsp of sesame oil occasionally, it’s so delicious and I can’t find an equally yummy sesame alternative..👍🏻🌱🌎🦋🍄☮️
I love jicama diced, with salted black beans, corn, doced cilantro, and lime juice, chilled. Its great by itself or on bowls.
I love these sauces will give them a try for sure thank you
Love the idea of roasting my red pepper in my air frier!❤
I’ve been looking for a grater like that, and it’s so helpful that you shared the rasp you use! Do you have an Amazon store where you highlight all the kitchen tools you use?
jicama with a squeeze of lime juice – yum
again – thanks for the written recipes
Thank you for these! Oil Free + Sauce = A good combo. I buy those frozen veggies you used with the red pepper sauce all the time. I know what I'm making first 🙂 Big fan of you! Thanks for the awesome content and detailed video notes. Molly
Thanks, I needed some sauce recipes
Praise the LORD for creating vegetables like pulses!
Thank you, Derek and Crystal, for your wonderful creations and for always being so inspiring. I will try these sauces today. I am sure they are delicious. How nice to be whole food plant based. So nourishing and health giving. Many blessings and love from Florida.
I've never found jicama here in the UK.

Just what I needed . More like these please
Great sauce video Derek😏
Salt is the main taste-modifying agent here…
I bought fresh basil and mint recently and it takes my salad game to the entire new level 😀 Will try the last one for sure!
Thank you so much for doing sauce recipes without vinegar! I despise vinegar, so like 99% of sauce recipes are not good for me. 😊
I would add peanut butter to the first one, cashew nuts to the second one and hemp seeds to the last one 😁
I loove your work 💕😇
They all look so yummy!! Jicama is delicious with a little fresh lime juice and Tajín sprinkled on. Yum yum
I can't imagine any salad or dressing without good organic extra vergin olive oil from Itsly or Greece. Oil makes the vegetables softer and easier to eat. I cook in Mediterranean / Italian style, therefore I am not afraid of EVO oil. Of course, I use also a lot of seeds, nuts, avocados, fatty fish and full fat organic dairy products. I am lucky to have great quality resources of these products here in central Europe.
1'47" it's better to peal the skin off, ginger is often sprayed with growth inhibitors to prevent them from sprouting. These chemicals are better not ingested. Besides that: great video 👍
Omg vegan recipes, , very healthy and delicious recipe.
Thanks You for sharing
Oh yeah!!! First sauce/bowl sounds perfect!!! I’ve been wanting an Asian inspired dressing that wasn’t a peanut butter and soy sauce combo. OMG! ❤
What airfryer temp for the roasted red peppers?
great videos recently – keep them coming please!!!
Nice dressing, but cilantro taste bitter for me it's a in some people Genetic SNP thing in our DNA
Yummy stuff. Thanks for sharing. I like jicama and cilantro. Etc.
I'm very familiar with jicama, raw carrots are my favorite food since I was a kid and I think it tastes like a boring white carrot
Best (non-sweet) fat free sauce: bean cooking liquid very flavorful, thick and delicious, change my mind
Aunt Jemimas pancake and waffle syrup in fat free so I should drench my food in it
MORE SAUCES!! Please this is probably my main hangup in vegan cooking. I dont k ow how to season things. Somethones I end up just eating plain, dry-ass quinoa peas and tofu or something. A video on how to season and sauces would be great
Thank you. I'll try the parsley and mustard one.
I appreciate you sharing. I love your sauces they are great. I have tried Jicama I love it.
