You can try using creamy tofu instead of cream. I have heard of people using Greek yogurt with great success, but I have yet to make anything that tastes good.

Fat free half and half is a good substitute for heavy cream.

I love doing sauces that use chicken broth, and maybe a little white wine. Add some onions and garlic, maybe some lemon juice.

Also, just cooking tomatoes and other vegetables in a little olive oil (adding a bit of water if you need to) can make a good sauce that is pretty healthy. The tomatoes kind of make their own sauce. The other day I did tomatoes and spinach with garlic in a little olive oil, it turned out awesome.

I’m commenting to follow along too.  I like to use a lot of soy-based sauces.  Just yesterday we made a marinade with olive oil, soy sauce, a splash of lemon juice, chili powder, pepper, and garlic, and we used it on some chicken breasts.  I prefer the low-sodium soy sauce for marinades because it doesn’t overpower it with saltiness.

Have you tried doing salsa, chimichurri, and pesto? I don’t make a lot of them myself (except salsa), but that’s what I think of when I think non-cream sauces. I would do peach or mango salsa on fish, pesto on chicken, and chimichurri on beef/red meat.

You can make a sauce out of most thing.  I normally would add some corn starch to sauces to get to the thick consistency of sauces without having to use cream…
