No Tomato BBQ Sauce (Sugar-Free)

No Tomato BBQ Sauce (Sugar-Free)

There are plenty of ways to make a great BBQ sauce at home that is delicious and also healthy for you. This is my easy recipe for sugar-free, no-tomato BBQ sauce that is sweet, tangy, and even spicy if you want.


- Extra virgin olive oil - Onions - Garlic cloves - Anchovies - Allspice, nutmeg,    turmeric, paprika,    cayenne pepper,    pepper, salt - Dijon mustard - Red Tabasco - Apple cider vinegar - Monk fruit sweetener - Filtered water - Tapioca flour


Add the olive oil to a saucepan and sautee the onions on low heat until they start caramelizing. It can take about 20-25 minutes. Stir occasionally. They are ready when you begin getting brown bits sticking to the pan.

Sautee onions


Add the garlic, anchovies, and spices. Stir well, and cook for a few minutes. Add the mustard, apple cider vinegar, tabasco, and sweetener. Stir well, and after a few seconds, add one or two tablespoons of water to deglaze the pan.

Add spices


Add water gradually while the sauce is cooking and thickening on low heat. When you add 3/4 cups water, turn off the heat, let the sauce cool down, then transfer to a blender (or blitz with a hand blender) and blend until a smooth consistency.

Blend sauce


Transfer the creamy sauce back to the pan. Bring it back to a boil on low heat, and add the tapioca flour mixed with one tablespoon of cold water.



Simmer on low heat for a few minutes, and taste. If necessary, add more salt, Tabasco, and sweetener.



Store in a glass jar, in the fridge, for a few days.
