Easy Barbecue Sauce Recipe

18 servings

We created this easy barbecue sauce recipe because most of the bottled sauces we found were high in sodium and loaded with sugar. This is a sugar free barbecue sauce recipe, although it does contain a little molasses. It is a no-cook sauce, so it is super fast to make. We love it on black bean burgers, or with our spicy roasted potato recipe.

2 oz dates, pitted and quartered
9 oz water

1/2 tsp garlic powderhomemade barbecue sauce
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp cayenne
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp chili powder
1/8 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp allspice

12 oz tomato paste
1 oz prepared mustard
1 oz molasses
2 oz balsamic vinegar
1 tsp liquid smoke flavoring

Put date pieces and water in a blender and set aside to soften while you prepare the other ingredients.

Into a small dry bowl, measure the garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne, black pepper, chili powder, cinnamon, and allspice.

In a medium straight-sided bowl, weigh tomato paste, prepared mustard, molasses, and balsamic vinegar. Remove from scale and add liquid smoke and bowl of spices.

Blend dates and water on high until smooth. Add to other ingredients and mix well with a whisk. Cover and refrigerate.

Comments: This simple homemade barbecue sauce is thick and spicy, with a smoky taste. If you thin it with a little water, you can simmer it for a few minutes with chunks of tempeh, seitan, or tofu for a delicious and quick entree. Or simmer it with cooked beans.
