Rough Rider Vegan Barbecue Sauce
Makes 1 cup
|This recipe is even better when made with organic ketchup. Although any ketchup will work here, organic ketchup doesn't contain high fructose corn syrup and tastes great.|
In a medium saucepan, whisk together the ketchup, 1/4 cup water, agave, light molasses, apple cider vinegar, soy sauce, liquid smoke, black pepper, and granulated onion, whisking until smooth.
Over medium heat, bring mixture to a simmer. Reduce the heat to low and simmer, uncovered, stirring frequently, for 30 minutes. For a really thick sauce, simmer an additional 15 minutes.
Let the sauce cool completely and refrigerate until ready to use.
Variation: For a spicier sauce, add about 1 teaspoon ground chipotle pepper to taste.
