Barbecue Sauce

From: Linda McCartney’s Home Cooking, p. 143

A Barbecue Sauce for marinating TVP burgers and sausages before grilling them over the barbecue.
I used this sauce for marinating some TVP “pulled chicken”, which I then fried in a pan- great taste!

The recipe gives you a large quantity of BBQ Sauce and as it is not cooked it will not keep well. Unless you are planning a big party, I would recommend only using one third or half of the ingredients to make a smaller batch.
We also found the sauce great to serve the TVP “chicken”- just drizzle over the TVP before eating.

Variations: As the tomato ketchup is quite sweet already, I only used 30g of sugar but found that this was still too much. Next time, I would add no extra sugar to the recipe. Depending on what you want to marinate, you can also reduce the amount of oil in the recipe to 3 tbsp.
For a smokey flavour, try adding 1/2 tsp of smoked paprika powder and use 1 tbsp of soy sauce instead of salt.
