Healthy Barbecue Sauce Recipe

Ooh baby. Back when we were kids, adults used to call barbeque sauce the food killer, because it took away the flavour of everything and replaced it with the sweet, yet tangy and smoky magic delight we all know as barbeque sauce.

The more we were told we weren’t allowed it, the more we had it. So here it is, in all it’s miraculous glory - a healthy barbeque sauce.

  • 1 cup of tomato sauce (see our recipe here)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp molasses
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 tsp allspice mix
  • 1/4 tsp Himalayan sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
How to make:
