There’s nothing like drenching whatever delicious vegan food you’re eating in more delicious vegan stuff, #amiright? Below are 20 vegan condiments, sauces, dressings, and spreads that will help you get the most out of life:
Tofutti Better Than Cream Cheese

Lemon Twist Hummus Olive Tapenade Hummus
Roasted Garlic Hummus
Roasted Pine Nut Hummus

Tuscan Garden Hummus
Wow, that’s 13 ways! And yes—they’re ALL vegan.
Follow Your Heart Salad Dressing
Follow Your Heart has perfected the art of vegan salad dressing—it’s so good, and there’s an option for everyone:
For the tradtional: ranch, honey mustard, balsamic vinaigrette, and Caesar
For the upper class: tamari miso, citrus poppy seed, lemon herb, and French Dijon
For the dauntless: spicy Southwestern ranch, balsamic barbeque, creamy garlic, and miso ginger
And for the … uh … miscellaneous: Italian vinaigrette, bleu cheese, and Thousand Island
Tofutti Sour Supreme
I was scared to go vegan at first because I thought I’d have to leave sour cream off my Mexican food, but thanks to Tofutti, I never have to live without it—no one does … we’re safe now.
What other condiment can you put in guacamole and lemonade and get an equally delicious result? I can’t think of one. Sriracha enhances pretty much every food group besides cupcakes.
El Paso Enchilada Sauce
You can use enchilada sauce to spice up burritos, tacos, flautas, and chimichangas, and it even turns pizza, casseroles, lasagne, rice, and dips into Mexican cuisine.
And you can also use it to make enchiladas.
Vegenaise is—dare I say—amayozing. It tastes just like mayo but without the suffering caused by the egg industry. Vegan mayo doesn’t require that hens be locked in cramped cages or sheds or that male chicks be killed shortly after birth. Vegenaise Gourmet also comes in a variety of whimsical flavors like chipotle, roasted garlic, pesto, barbeque, horseradish, tartar sauce, and Sriracha!
Gone are the days when your sandwiches had reason to act smug and entitled around your mayo-less vegan tacos, meatball subs, and sushi. Thanks to the flavors that Vegenaise offers, you can put “mayonnaise” on everything you eat. Everything.
No words can do this stuff justice, so let’s just have a moment of silence and move on.
Cholula Hot Sauce
Not only is it a really fun word to say, Cholula also makes anything you put it on taste fun.
Annie’s Naturals Organic BBQ Sauce
A little-known secret that I’d like to share with you is that no meat, whether plant-based or animal-derived, tastes like barbecue right off the bat—ya always gotta add barbecue sauce! So you might as well put it on some seitan instead of someone’s ribs, right?
Trader Joe’s Goddess Dressing
I’ve eaten a lot of condiments in my day—almost double the recommended amount, and I have to say—this one is my favorite. I enjoy this dressing most on garden salads, in pasta salads, and in a tall glass with a straw.
Eden Foods Organic Tamari Soy Sauce
It’s common knowledge and pretty much a hard fact that soy sauce goes great with vegan sushi, but it’s also super-versatile for cooking, if you’re into that sort of thing.
Earth Balance natural Peanut Butter
Yep—peanut butter is vegan, despite the word “butter.”
Annie’s Naturals organic Ketchup and Mustard
All ketchup and mustard is vegan, but if vegan is the goal, then vegan and organic is the dream.
Sabra Pico de Gallo Salsa
Tomatoes, onions, and cilantro are the only guests I ever invite to my fiestas, and my fiestas are always SO FUN.
Kite Hill ‘Cheese’
OK, cheese isn’t technically a condiment, but this is so good I had to include it! The people at Kite Hill make creamy, soft, rich, fresh “cheese” out of almond milk—so they win.
Trader Joe’s Tahini Sauce
Tahini sauce is a ground sesame seed paste that goes great with pitas, falafel, vegan shawarma, dolmas, fries … it’s basically the ketchup of the Middle East.
Annie’s Naturals Organic Vegan Worcestershire Sauce
One of my FAVORITE things to do is pronounce “Worcestershire” as “war-sester-shyer” (correctly pronounced “woo-ster-sher” IRL) just to see if anyone corrects me. So, yes—this stuff makes for a delicious meal AND a great social experiment, the two main things we all look for in a sauce.
If you’re not familiar with it, nutritional yeast is seasoning that tastes like cheese. It’s a complete protein, meaning that it contains all nine of the amino acids that the body doesn’t naturally produce (in just 2 tablespoons), but the only thing I’m really interested in is the flavor.
You can use it in fancy recipes or just sprinkle it on top of stuff—popcorn, mashed potatoes, scrambled tofu, mac and “cheese,” pizza, spaghetti …. If you can dream it, you can cheesify it.
Earth Balance Buttery Spread
It’s like butter—but BETTER. Observe:
Animals on factory farms are denied everything that is natural and important to them, and many spend their short, miserable lives in cramped sheds or cages or on feedlots—often enduring intense abuse—until the day they’re slaughtered. Together, we can make a big difference for animals by leaving meat, eggs, and dairy products out of our food.
