Whole30 Paleo Barbecue Sauce
There are a variety of ways to make a barbecue sauce. However, the majority of store-bought barbecue sauces are very high in sugar. The dates in this recipe make a great natural substitute! This barbecue sauce can last up to 4 weeks in the fridge. I recommend storing in a sterilized Mason jar. This sauce is very versatile as it can be used as a marinade, a dipping sauce and even on a pizza base.
- 170 ml Balsamic Vinegar
- 120 ml Water
- 160 g Tomato Paste
- 8 pitted Medjool Dates
- 2 tbsp Dijon Mustard
- 2 tbsp Coconut Aminos
- 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
- 1/2 tsp Onion Powder
- 1/2 tsp Himalayan Salt
- 1/2 tsp Black Pepper
Heat a saucepan over medium-low heat.
Add all ingredients, stir gently then, bring low simmer for approximately 5 minutes.
Pour the BBQ sauce into a high powered blender.
Blend on high speed for approximately 2 minutes.
This recipe is great because it can be easily modified. If you love a fiery kick, why not add 1/4 tsp of cayenne pepper? Adding 1tbsp more of vinegar makes the sauce extra tangy.
