Barbeque Sauce

A Healthy BBQ Sauce!

I was checking the ingredients on our favorite sauce and was taken back…ingredients I can’t even pronounce. This is a much healthier alternative and super tasty. It actually gets a bit better if you make it and wait a day before you use it. Adjust the spices to your liking and let me know what you are putting it on! YUM!


  • ½ cup water
  • ¼ cup tomato paste
  • 3 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp. pure maple syrup
  • 2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • ¼ tsp. red pepper flakes
  • 2 tsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • ½ to 1 tsp. liquid smoke (adjust to your taste)


  1. In a medium saucepan whisk together ½ cup water, tomato paste, vinegar, maple syrup, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, onion powder, salt and pepper flakes.
  2. Bring sauce to a boil on medium high and continue boiling for 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in oil.
  3. Makes about ½ cup.

I usually triple the recipe and store in a mason jar in the fridge for a week or two…usually gone before then!!
