If you’re looking for an awesome barbecue recipe, then why not try a vegan version? With the wide variety of soy products that are now on the market, it’s not hard to find an incredible sauce or side salad that will have your guests asking for seconds later. Most people don’t realize just how versatile these products are. Once you try one, you’ll wonder how you ever cooked without them!
What makes a good vegan BBQ recipe? One of the best things about vegan ingredients is that they are as natural as possible since they come straight from the earth. Some of the most popular ingredients include vinegar (which is great on pickles and onions), soy sauce, tomatoes, spices, vegetables, corn, garlic, cumin, lemon juice, and more. If you’re itching to break out the natural flavors in your kitchen, there are several delicious vegan-friendly BBQ recipes for you which include all of the wonderfully rich taste you love so much.
In addition to making an incredible pulled barbecue, another fantastic idea is a mouthwatering original called Worcestershire sauce. Worcestershire sauce is a mixture of various seasonings including apple cider vinegar, dried mustard, dry mustard, hot mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and bacon drippings. While it may seem complicated to make, it is very easy to make, and it is a fantastic way to add depth to any barbecue recipe. It goes great with hamburgers, hot dogs, and corn on the cob, as well as various other dishes.
Another great thing about vegan recipes using Worcestershire sauce is that it is completely dairy free. Most of the sauces mentioned above are based on animal-based proteins such as bacon grease or lard. You’ll be happy to know that most vegan recipes, including Worcestershire sauce, are completely free of dairy products. So, if you’re a non-vegan looking to add that missing “pinch” to your diet, this is the way to go.
To make your BBQ sauce, simply start with a couple of cans of tomato paste. You’ll want to keep a container of this paste at the ready so you can just grab a couple of cans whenever you need it. The best thing about this condiment is that you can add different flavor profiles to it. You can add tomato, garlic, herbs, Cayenne peppers, and even curry flavors to it. You can cook it up in five minutes, which is plenty of time for parties and other quick grill meals!
Next, you will need to gather some main ingredients. In this recipe, I use mustard seeds, onions, celery, and green pepper to give this bbq sauce a little extra kick. If you don’t have these ingredients, feel free to purchase them from a health food store. Then, grab a package of nutritional facts papers, such as the serving size for an average-sized adult, and a measuring cup. This is extremely important for creating the correct consistency.
Now, depending on how you want to create your marinade, you will either need to purchase or make your barbecue wing sauce. There are several marinades that you can choose from, but I find that the barbecue wing sauce with tomato is my favorite. You can simply follow the recipe below, or create a slightly different one if you wish. Simply adjust the amounts of liquid, spices, and lemon juice as appropriate.
After you’ve made your homemade barbecue wing sauce, simply add it to your baked potato, and you’re all set! As you can see, creating a vegan bbq sauce is as easy as creating a vegan recipe. You don’t have to worry about all of the unnatural ingredients in traditional recipes, and you can use things that are more nutritious for your diet. To me, this is one of the biggest benefits of being a vegan; there is no need to completely give up everything that makes a meal. With a little creativity, you can create a vegan diet that is tasty, delicious, and full of nutrition.
