You have your vegan burgers and sausages ready to grill, but what would a plant-based BBQ be without the sauce?! Luckily, many BBQ sauces are already vegan, and Americans don’t need to make a special trip to the health food store to stock up. But two sneaky ingredients to keep an eye out for, and avoid, are honey and anchovies. We’ve listed a few of our go-to sauces for you to try out below!
Sweet Baby Ray’s has a few vegan BBQ sauces to choose from, but their Original flavor is a classic that is widely available in the US. This sweet sauce is a perfect consistency – not too thick, but not runny either!
If you are looking for an easy-to-find sauce with a kick, you’ll want to try Stubb’s. Their Spicy Bar-B-Q sauce is tomato-based, with habanero and black pepper coming in hot!
This Asian-inspired BBQ sauce can be used in place of any barbecue sauce or ketchup and will give your burger that little sweet and sour kick you are looking for!
You know you’re in for a sweet and tropical treat when the second ingredient is pineapple juice! Need we say more?
With a mustard base, Carolina Gold offers a bold and tangy flavor. Plus, with “hidden” veggies, this is another ingredient list that we can get behind!
