Easy Whole30 BBQ Sauce

  • Total Time: 10 mins
  • Yield: 2.5 cups

Ingredients

3/4 cups balsamic vinegar

1/2 cup water

(1) 6-ounce can tomato paste

8 pitted medjool dates

2 tablespoons dijon mustard

2 tablespoons coconut aminos

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon onion powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper


Instructions

Heat a sauce pan over medium low heat. Add all ingredients, stir to combine, and bring to a low simmer for 5 minutes. You don’t want it to boil, just get warmed through. Heating will allow the flavors to marry and soften the dates.

Transfer the BBQ sauce to a blender, and blend on high speed for 2 minutes. (Careful blending warm liquids in blenders! I love my Vitamix, it can blend hot liquid without issue.)

I like my bbq sauce thick so it really sticks to the meat I grill. If you like yours thinner, add water and blend until desired consistency is reached.

Store in an airtight container or wide mouth pint mason jar. Will keep in the fridge for at least 4 weeks, or frozen for 1 year.
