Our Favorite Ways to Enjoy MamaSezz Awesome Sauce

Quick Synopsis

Dubbed Awesome Sauce by the MamaSezz Heartbeet Gang during recipe testing (because it was so flippin’ awesome), our creamy vegan thousand island dressing is more than a salad dressing. It will give your dish the flavor boost you never knew you needed. Keep reading to get our favorite ways to enjoy this non-dairy sauce.

The Full Story

Attention all plant-based newbies - creamy dressings and sauces are not a thing of the past. Our vegan thousand island dressing (AKA Awesome Sauce) is delicious proof. And this mayo-free dressing isn’t just for sprucing up your greens (though it goes well with just about any salad or slaw). There are so many dishes to pair with this sauce it was hard to narrow it down to our 9 of our favorites listed below.

1. Quinoa Kale Salad

A wedge salad pairs great with vegan thousand island dressing but will it fill you up? Probably not. We like a little bulk with our greens, which is why we recommend pairing kale with the MamaSezz Quinoa Stack and topping with a healthy drizzle of Awesome Sauce for a protein-packed salad that deserves to be called a meal.

2. Healthy Vegan Big Macs

Big Mac and healthy don’t usually go hand in hand but hear us out. Skip the drive-through and grill up a Mama’s Burger instead (yep our veggie burgers are actually grillable). Then pair with lettuce, pickles, raw onions, and a dollop of Awesome Sauce. Voila, you got yourself a Big Mac, without the cholesterol. Feel free to really treat yourself and add some Mama’s Mac Sauce as well.

3. Dipping Sauce

Bust out your air fryer because Awesome Sauce and oil-free french fries are a match made in plant-based heaven. Our tangy creamy sauce is also delightful with oil-free falafel in place of hummus or tahini, or with your favorite fresh veggies. Go dunk crazy.

4. Potato Salad

Bring your next picnic to a whole new level with Awesome Sauce potato salad. Our vegan thousand island dressing is the perfect egg-free replacement for your mayo and will give the classic summer dish a refreshing tang.

5. Pasta Salad

Again, move over mayo, there’s a new picnic salad condiment in town and it’s awesome. Give your favorite pasta salad recipe a whole food plant-based upgrade by pairing with Awesome Sauce and using whole grain pasta.

6. Tempeh Reuben

Yes, tempeh Reubens are a thing and they’re dang delicious, especially so if you top with our Awesome Sauce. Trust us, you won’t miss the mayo (or the meat).

7. Plant-Based Breakfast Sandwich

Kickstart your morning with a plant-based breakfast sandwich that’ll power your day. Toast two slices of your favorite whole grain bread and fill with one or two MamaSezz Veggie Sausages, a hearty scoop MamaSezz Turmeric Chickpea Scramble, and a large dollop of Awesome Sauce.

8. Whole Grain Pizza

Get in your favorite PJs, queue up Netflix, and make it a plant-based pizza night. Load up whole grain pizza dough with your favorite veggies like artichokes, olives, broccoli, onions and mushrooms (perfect for cleaning out your fridge), plus some crumbled MamaSezz Veggie Sausage, then bake on 400 until almost done, about 10 minutes or so. Drizzle Awesome Sauce on top then bake for another 2 minutes.

9. Baked Potato Topping

You don’t need sour cream to make that baked potato shine. Awesome Sauce to the rescue again! We love to add steamed broccoli bites to our baked spuds and pour a generous serving of Awesome on top for an easy and satisfying lunch. (Get more tasty and vegan baked potato topping ideas here.)

Key Takeaways

Like all our oil-free sauces, MamaSezz Awesome Sauce is hardly one-note! There’s a whole world of possibilities with this vegan thousand island dressing. But we get it. Sometimes a little direction is helpful, especially for the plant-based beginners out there. If this sounds like you, go with our tried and true favorites:
