Protein-Rich Vegan BBQ Sauce


Barbeque and nut butter aren't your usual combo, but there's no reason they shouldn't be! This version reduces sugar, adds protein and omegas, and tastes better than store-bought. The shrimp shown are sautéed right in a pan, as the sauce has enough smoky, rich flavor that you can skip firing up the grill.
