*BBQ Sauce Note: I use 1/4 cup Organicville brand BBQ Sauce and 1/4 cup of my homemade BBQ Sauce, recipe below.
BBQ Sauce Recipe:
1 garlic clove, minced
3/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup water
3 Tbsp. coconut sugar
2 Tbsp. molasses
1 tsp. apple cider vinegar
1-2 Tbsp. vegan Worcestershire sauce
1/2 to 1 teaspoon liquid smoke
3/4 tsp. onion powder
1/4 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. paprika
Add garlic to a saucepan and sauté with a drop of oil for a few minutes. Then add in the rest of your ingredients and whisk to combine. Adjust seasonings to taste. Cook on medium heat until the sauce begins to simmer, whisking occasionally. Once simmering, turn the heat down so the sauce stays at a low simmer; continue whisking occasionally. Simmer for about 30 min or until the sauce is desired thickness and the flavors have come together. Adjust seasonings as needed.
