BBQ Sauce (Yields 2 cups)

  • 8 oz can tomato sauce

BBQ Ranch

  • Add the mayo into a mason jar. Here is my recipe for homemade mayo (1 cup of light olive oil, 1 egg, 1/2 teaspoon mustard powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 tsp lemon juice) Add all your ingredients to a mason jar and use your immersion blender to mix together until thick and creamy. In a separate bowl add in all of your seasoning and mix together.
  • Transfer the seasoning mix to the mayo. Add in the coconut milk and vinegar. Here you will add less or more depending on the consistency you like. Put the mason jar lid on and shake. Add 3 tbsp of the BBQ Sauce and mix together with a spoon until combined well.

BBQ Sauce

  • Add all the ingredients to a blender and turn on high speed and mix together for 30 seconds. Transfer BBQ sauce to a sauce pan and heat over low heat until warm (not boiling)
  • Transfer to a mason jar and store in the fridge for up to 4 weeks.
