What is Worcestershire Sauce?
It’s a sauce that has bold flavor and is traditionally made with vinegar, fermented onion and garlic, molasses, spices, citrus, and anchovies.
How do You Make it Vegan?
Clearly, we don’t use anchovies in our homemade vegan Worcestershire sauce. In place of that salty fish, we use soy sauce and the brine from capers.
Additionally, we add warm spices, molasses, orange juice, and vinegar.
It’s so easy to make.
- All you’ll need to do is add the ingredients to a saucepan and bring the mixture to a boil.
- Reduce the heat to simmer and let it cook for five minutes.
- Remove it from the heat and let it cool, then use a siphon (if you have one) and pour it into a glass jar or a bottle with a lid.
- Refrigerate for one week to let the flavors marry.
How Long Will it Last?
This homemade vegan sauce will last one month in the refrigerator.
When to Use Worcestershire Sauce
Use it whenever you need a full-bodied broth, sauce, or dish.
For vegan cooking, it is a key ingredient in our seitan recipes. It adds a wonderful umami flavor that’s required in meaty dishes.
