Why buy a vegan Worcestershire sauce when you can make it at home without so much extra added sugar and nonsense? The key to this version does come from one slightly unusual ingredient, but that's what puts this recipe over-the-top! This beefs up any seitan dish, and also helps mask any gluteny flavor.



Ingredients

 1 cup apple cider vinegar
  cup balsamic vinegar
  cup soy sauce
 1 medium onion, chopped
 3 cloves garlic, chopped or crushed
 2 tbsp brown sugar
 1 tsp black peppercorns
 1 tsp fresh grated gingeror 1/2t ground
 ¼ tsp dried thyme
 ¼ tsp dried oregano
 1 tsp orange zest
 1 tsp dijon mustard
 1 orange, juiced
 2 tsp tamarind paste
 ½ tsp whole cloves
 ½ tsp liquid smoke

Directions

1

Bring all ingredients to a boil then lower to a simmer for about 15-20 minutes, or until the liquid has been reduced by about 1/2. Cool to room temperature, then strain through a fine mesh into an airtight container. Store in the refrigerator for up to 1 month.

Porky PowderBy JenI've been trialing all kinds of ingredients to create a seasoning that would make a great base for seitan "pork" styles like chops and tenderloin. This one hits all the right notes for me - a little sweet, plenty savory and of course umami-packed!
Vegan Fish SauceBy JenUse this simple vegan fish sauce as you would traditionally to enhance the flavors of any dish. This recipe gets its fishiness from kombu, umami from shiitake mushrooms, and has a little bit of sweet, sour, and savory to balance everything out.
Steak SeasoningBy JenSimple and versatile, this steak seasoning can be used to "beef" up any of your seitan dishes. You can even make a quick broth using about 1T per cup of boiling water, plus about 1/2-1T of soy sauce/liquid aminos per cup.
