1, 2, 3 and you have yourself a delicious Vegan BBQ Sauce, ladies and gents!

I first used this homemade sauce to marinate tempeh I got from nowhere other than Trader Joe’s, of course. I broke apart the tempeh to small bits and used about 1/2 of the sauce to mix it with. Let this sit overnight and sauté with a light oil spray when ready to eat. Mu husband says it taste healthy, but all I taste is a bbq sauce made from fresh ingredients and not ridden with a large amount of sugar. 🙂 Let me know what you think, and enjoy!
