  • Add all ingredients to a medium sized bowl and whisk to combine. Makes about 2 1/2 cups or 18 ounces, the same amount in an average bottle of store bought barbecue sauce. Store in the refrigerator up to a week.
  • Use this recipe for Instant Pot BBQ Jackfruit, on veggie burgers, BBQ tofu or tempeh or even with these Easy Baked Tofu Nuggets.


  1. Look for a ketchup without high fructose corn syrup. 
  2. For Gluten Free, use gluten free tamari instead of the low sodium soy sauce.
  3. For the vegan Worcestershire sauce, I usually buy Annie's brand. If you can't find it, you can leave it out.
