We’re sure we’re not alone in this, but we find weekday cooking TOUGH. There, we said it. And while we *wish* we had the discipline to meal prep every Sunday, realistically that’s not always the case. Which means we’re always (always) looking for a helping hand to get dinner on the table after a long day at work. Enter: Haven’s Kitchen packaged sauces. 

Why are we gung-ho about these sauces? Well, to start, sauce adds flavor and dimension to basically everything (even chicken breast). It’s a unifier that ties all of the elements together and the ultimate lifesaver for healthy weekday cooking. And, we’re not just talking about any sauce.

Haven’s Kitchen Sauces Are a Weeknight Dinner Hero

Haven’s Kitchen packaged sauces are what you wish you had made yourself. Here’s why we regularly lean on them for weekday cooking:

1. They’re made with quality ingredients.

The sauces are full of flavor from REAL ingredients. Take the Chimmichurri for example, it’s packed with fresh herbs, lemon zest, capers, white wine, and extra virgin olive oil. Plus, all of the sauces are non-GMO, vegan, and gluten-free. 

2. They satisfy all of our cravings.

Craving an Asian-inspired dinner? Or maybe you’re in the mood for something Mediterranean? Haven’s Kitchen has got you. They have six sauces — Tangy BBQ, Herby Chimichurri, Golden Turmeric Tahini, Gingery Miso, Red Pepper Romesco, Zippy Chili Harissa — so you never have to be bored with dinner again. If that’s not #winning, then we don’t know what is. 

3. They come in recyclable pouches.

Squeeze > pour. Because, who doesn’t want to squeeze sauce all over their plate? Talk about gratification! Their pouches are also more sustainable and 100% recyclable thanks to TerraCycle. Just request a pre-paid mail-in package and send back all of your used pouches so they can have a second life.

4. Haven’s Kitchen is a female-owned business. 

We love knowing where our food comes from and, even more, we love when it’s run by a women. Founded by Alison Cayne, Haven’s Kitchen is headquartered in NYC and the sauces are produced in Rochester, NY — though rest assured you can find Haven’s Kitchen sauces all over the U.S.!
