Finished BBQ Sauce

This is my first attempt at making BBQ sauce from scratch and I decided to use a recipe from Bryant Terry’s Vegan Soul Kitchen. It was a pretty simple; mix together all ingredients in a food processor then cook mixture on stove top till you get your desired consistency.

Thoughts about this goal
I think was a good first attempt but it was lacking some flavor. It had a pretty mild flavor with a slight kick from the chipotle chiles at the end. This batch of BBQ sauce was made for a friend’s birthday dinner (I marinated tofu in the BBQ sauce and then baked it). I think next time I will use some liquid smoke and add more spices. Making BBQ sauce was easier than I thought it was going to be, so I will be probably be doing it again soon.

Why is this goal on my list?
I thought it was be fun skill to have in my bag of culinary tricks. BBQ sauce isn’t that expensive or hard to find but homemade tastes amazing!
