Vegan Barbecue Sauce

Time for summer and the grill…finally. Although the weather for our Memorial Day weekend is predicted to be cooler than average, it’s going to be dry which means we’ll get in plenty of outdoor time and will likely be firing up the grill more than once. Good thing I have plenty of BBQ sauce to go around.

For the Barbecue Sauce Face Off I wanted to create something with a lot of flavor in an effort to really saturate my tofu and tempeh which are, for the most part, flavorless. Some essential ingredients for a barbecue sauce are not Vegan, such as honey and worcestershire sauce, however, these are easily replaceable with organic sugar, agave and what I used, Annie’s Vegan Worcestershire Sauce. I went for a healthy amount of worcestershire and liquid smoke which really stands out after the sauce has been cooked through. The spices in my recipe can be adjusted to your liking, mine are generous because, well, I like my food to pack a punch.

Enjoy your Memorial Day weekend…for now I leave you with this:

Homer: Look kids! I just got my party invitiations back from the printers.
Lisa: [reading the invitation] “Come to Homer’s BBBQ. The extra B is for BYOBB.”
Bart: What’s that extra B for?
Homer: It’s a typo.
