I use a lot of hot sauce, soy ginger to flavor stir fires/meats; wondering what else people use that's relatively healthy and quick

Hoisin and worchestershire.

Five-flavor spice mixed with soy sauce really sparks up the taste of meat.

I know this is not by definition a sauce, but this homemade version of Green Goddess dressing is great on salads, as a dip, etc.  Avocado, herbs etc, just keep the olive oil at two tablespoons if low-cal is also on your menu.  Double or triple the recipe and give to friends who will think you're a healthy kitchen god(dess):

Dijon based (as oppose to solely tumeric) Mustard goes a long way towards adding flavor with very few calories.

Depends on your target for cuisine and "healthy" diet: calories, sodium, fat, carbs, acidity (though I have failed to see substantial evidence), raw/paleo (similar to acidity).


Common aromatics are a good starting point: Ginger (as you are using), Onion, Garlic, Carrots, Celery, Peppers, etc.; you can experiment both with the portion of the plant you utilize (e.g. using garlic scapes instead of cloves) as well as the method of preparation (e.g. raw, roasted, pickled,...).

Often simple spices like plain black peppercorns will go a long way for flavor when complimenting sauces.
herbs as was mentioned above (e.g. Basil) and spices as appropriate to the cuisine and flavor palate you are attempting to match.

Alcohols (usually wines) can certainly add some depth of flavor when making a reduction for a sauce.
