DIY: Smokey BBQ Sauce

  • 1 glug of olive oil
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • a few cloves of minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon tamari
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 tbsp yellow mustard
  • 1/3 teaspoon ground chipotle spice (smoked paprika would also work)
  • a few dashes liquid smoke (I use a vegan variety)
  • 1 (6-ounce) can tomato paste
  • 1 1/4 cups veggie broth
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • a couple dashes of hot pepper sauce
  • 2 tbsp honey OR 1/8 -1/4 teaspoon stevia extract
Sautee onion and garlic in oil until soft and fragrant. Add in other ingredients and simmer about 20-30 minutes until it thickens into a nice sauce. I like to blend at the end so flavours combine even more and there are no bits of onion, but this is optional. Make sure to taste at the end and add extra sweetener/hot sauce/smoke until its perfect for you.
**If the mixture doesnt thicken to your liking, just add a little cornstarch mixed with water

  1. Homemade sauce is just so much better, and I’d say gotta have that honey!
