Ingredients

  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 3/4 cup minced onion
  • 1 clove garlic crushed
  • 1 tbs soy sauce
  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp dry mustard
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tbs honey

Instructions

  • In a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, sauté the onion in the olive oil until softened (3-4 minutes).
  • Add the crushed garlic and cook for another minute. I use a microplane to turn the garlic into a puree so I don’t end up with little chunks of garlic in the sauce.
  • Add the remaining ingredients. Stir together, and simmer over low heat until thickened (about 20 minutes).
