Plant-Based Barbecue Sauce is a healthy alternative to store-bought. It only has a few ingredients and takes a few minutes to make.
I'm keeping it short and sweet today. After all, there's only so much I can write about barbecue sauce.
You can do some fun things with barbecue sauce.
When I was a kid, I used to eat it on broccoli. Weird, I know. But I promise there are other, less strange things you can do.
You could coat vegetables and grill them. Such a great summer recipe! Okay, I admit, that's pretty similar to pouring it on broccoli. But it's definitely more delicious.
You could also make Barbecue Jackfruit Sandwiches. That's why I made this particular batch. Stay tuned for the recipe!
I don't know about you, but if I'm going to make my own sauce instead of buying it from the store I want it to be two things.
This barbecue sauce is both!
There are only a few ingredients in the sauce, making it incredibly healthy. Many store-bought sauces have added sugar and preservatives. The more we can avoid those, the better off we are!
This barbecue sauce has only six ingredients. All whole foods. All healthy.
And that's it! Just a few good-for-you ingredients.
So maybe I have you convinced that this sauce is healthier than a store-bought sauce. But honestly who is going to make their own sauce if it's a huge hassle? Not me.
The good news is that this sauce can cook in as little as 10 minutes. If you want, you can let it cook down for longer, but in 10 minutes is all you really need.
Seriously. 10 minutes for an easy healthy sauce. There's no excuse not to make it.
Step 1. Add all ingredients to a food processor. Process until smooth.
Step 2. Transfer the mixture to a small saucepan and bring to a simmer. Reduce the heat to low, cover and let simmer for 10-30 minutes. The sauce will thicken. You can let it cook until it reaches your desired consistency.
The sauce will keep in the fridge for several weeks.
Enjoy with your favorite barbecue recipe!
