Easy InstantPot BBQ Sauce (Vegan, Sugar & Oil Free)

Updated: Aug 30, 2018

I love BBQ sauce! But it is getting harder and harder to find ones that are either vegan (no anchovies please!), or that don't contain high fructose corn syrup. So I decided I would make my own, and try to keep it as simple as possible while still being delicious. I use this sweet, smokey & tangy BBQ sauce on my plant based BBQ ribs, my famous bean burger and even in my southwest spinach salad.

Here's what you will need!

  • 6 oz can of tomato paste

  • 2 cups of water

  • 1 tbs apple cider vinegar

  • 1 tbs molasses

  • 1 tbs maple syrup

  • 2 tsp liquid smoke

  • 1 tsp soy sauce

  • 1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes

  • 1 tsp smoked paprika

  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder

  • 1/2 tsp onion powder

  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper

  • InstantPot


  1. Add all of the ingredients into the instantpot

  2. Give it all a good stir with a mixing utensil

  3. Set the instantpot for 10 minutes on the pressure cook setting

  4. quick release
