Fire up the grill – but first, make this tangy, real-food barbecue sauce! All of the familiar flavor with none of the added sugar.


3 tbsp Olive Oil, Extra Virgin
1 tbsp Tomato paste, canned
1/2 medium Yellow onion (grated or finely chopped)
1 tbsp Chili powder
2 tsp Garlic powder
2 tsp Fennel seed
1 tsp Cumin (ground)
1/2 tsp Cayenne pepper
397 gm Whole tomato, canned
2 tsp Apple cider vinegar
2 tsp Salt


  1. 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.
  2. Add a couple of tablespoons of water and simmer for 5 minutes.
  3. Grind the spices and add them to the saucepan together with the tomatoes and the vinegar. Add salt.
  4. 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.
