Fire up the grill – but first, make this tangy, real-food barbecue sauce! All of the familiar flavor with none of the added sugar.
Olive Oil, Extra Virgin
Tomato paste, canned
(grated or finely chopped)
Whole tomato, canned
Apple cider vinegar
Carefully heat the oil in a heavy saucepan. Stir in the tomato paste. Add the onion and fry until soft and glossy over medium heat.
Add a couple of tablespoons of water and simmer for 5 minutes.
Grind the spices and add them to the saucepan together with the tomatoes and the vinegar. Add salt.
Bring to a boil, lower the heat and let simmer for another 15-20 minutes. Mix, using an immersion blender, until smooth and let cool. If you want a thicker sauce let it simmer longer, until it reaches the desired consistency.
