If you ask me, onions spend far too much time in a supporting role, so we’re changing that with a simple sauce that packs big, bold flavor. It comes together with three basic ingredients (salt, pepper, and oil are freebies) to create a flavor-packed sauce that is just the right balance of smoky, sweet, and tangy.

How to Use This Sauce

This sauce is incredibly versatile and pairs well with just about everything in your meal plan, whether you spoon it over a grain bowl, spread it on a sandwich, or use it as a marinade or topping for sheet pan tofu. The sweetness of the roasted onion and charred, smoky undertones make it a natural pairing for everything you pull off the grill. It also seamlessly blends into your regular salad dressing.

Or you could grab your favorite soft cheese, a sleeve of crackers, this sauce, and call it dinner. We won’t tell!
