Basic Gluten Free BBQ Sauce
Because I have Celiac Disease, which means I can't eat most grains, I have had to come up with some creative ways to cook in the kitchen. I have to make a lot of things from scratch because mainstream products aren't gluten free and specialty items are so expensive. So, I choose to make my own!
Here is my recipe for gluten-free BBQ Sauce.
1 can, 6 oz. tomato paste
1 tsp. minced garlic
1 tbs. gluten free vinegar (nothing with malt, or that has had malt added after the distillation process)
1 tbs. mustard (I like Dijon)
1 tsp. chili powder
2 tbs. honey
2 tsp black pepper
2 tbs Worcestershire sauce (Lea and Perrins is GF in the United States, but not abroad- take note)
Mix tomato paste with about 3 ounces of water (half the can). When fully mixed then add the rest of the ingredients. You can add more or less water to achieve the proper consistency. Freezes well for up to 6 months and can be stored, opened, in the fridge for up to a week.
