Even if you make nothing else, a sauce is the one thing I always recommend for meal prepping over the weekend. It’s the small (but oh-so-mighty) component that takes just about anything you’re eating — be it chicken, steak, a side of roasted carrots, a Buddha bowl, or even dessert — from pretty good to really amazing. And the best part is that it doesn’t take much effort or many ingredients to put one together.

To make things easy, here are 53 sauce recipes (both savory and sweet!) to partner with anything you eat.
