Do you have any idea how long it has been since I had any BBQ? Do ya? Well it has been a long time, and that is all you need to know. I have had serious withdrawals not having this stuff. I mean as a vegetarian what do you BBQ? Well I am finding out you can do wonders with BBQ sauce. Teek me a while to realize that and then to find recipes to fit into my new regime. But alas, I found a very do-able. This delicious gem comes from Post Punk Kitchen And let me tell you, this rocks. Now she does suggest to add some water to thin it out. Take her up on that suggestion. It is extremely thick and is not pourable (I made that word up). But add a bit of water and you will be good to go.
2 small cans (12oz total) tomato paste
1/2 cup tamari or Braggs
1/4 cup blackstrap molasses
2 Tbs brown sugar
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
a few chipotles in adobo (we skipped this part)
1 tsp liquid smoke
dash of cocoa powder (we used about 1/4 t)
Mix the tomato paste, tamari, molasses, brown sugar, nutritional yeast, chipotles in adobo, liquid smoke, and dash of cocoa powder in the bowl. Stir with fork till completely blended.This tends to make a fairly thick sauce. Thin with water as desired.
