Vegan South Carolina BBQ Sauce Sloppy Joe (Gluten free, Vegan, Citrus Free)

This meal was super simple, although had a few steps, and suprised me with how tangy and wonderful it was! I will definatly be using this sauce in many many ways, such as a glaze for potatoes baked in the oven, or over grilled tofu....

The sauce was taken from The Happy Herbivore - who has excellent recipes and you should definatly check out.

2/3 cup yellow mustard( for a kick, I used jalapeno mustard)
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup white distilled vinegar
1/4 cup water
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp molasses( I didnt have molasses so I used maple syrup)
1/2 tsp garlic powder
cayenne powder as desired (start with 1/8 tsp)

1. whisk all ingredients together in a sauce pan
2. bring to a boil
3. once boiling, reduce to low
4. cook uncovered 5-10 minutes (until thickness to your liking- this took me closed to 15 minutes because I like my sauce thick)
6. store in an air-tight container in the fridge
