Worchestershire Sauce

Being a vegan cook is alot of fun but it sometimes has its frustrations. This is usually due to common ingredients of your favorite recipes not being vegan. For me recently, that was the case when I needed Worcestershire sauce for a recipe. The original contains anchovies and fish sauce which are not vegan, and because it has such a unique and distinctive taste its a hard ingredient to replace. 

The good news that this doesn’t have to be a problem as you can easily make your own vegan Worcestershire sauce. I found this simple recipe online, tweaked it a bit and it is amazing. It’s taste alot like the original and works perfectly in any recipe that calls for Worcestershire. I use Braggs Soy Seasonings in my version which gives the sauce its rich deep taste and color. I added to it apple cider vinegar, spices and dehydrated vegetable which I buy in bulk.

Delicious vegan substitute

Vegan Worcestershire sauce is very easy to make. Just combine all the ingredients in a medium size saucepan. Heat to simmering, let cool and pour into glass jars. It’s stored in the refrigerator and will lasts a month or longer. Be sure to shake the bottle before use as some of the ingredients will settle.

The end result is a delicious, deeply flavoured and coloured sauce that does perfectly the job of the original. You can use it as seasoning in dishes, to season and marinade tofu, tempeh or seitan or as an ingredient in recipes. After making, it should be kept refrigerated and used within a month. Also, the spices and soup mix settle so make sure to shake it well before using.  Enjoy!
