Rough Rider Vegan Barbecue Sauce Recipe

Rough Rider Vegan Barbecue Sauce

Makes 1 cup

  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup agave nectar
  • 1/4 cup light molasses
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons liquid smoke
  • 3/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon granulated onion or onion powder
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.
