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!
Noble Made Smoky BBQ sauce leans more toward savory than sweet with a delicious smoky flavor and a thinner consistency. The simple ingredients list is also sure to be a crowd-pleaser.
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!
