I have always wanted to taste worcestershire sauce, but it contains fish. I know there are some vegan alternatives, and I checked if vegekauppa has any on their selection, as we are planning to place an order anyway. While searching I started to wonder why not try to do it by myself, I bet there are tons of recipes on the Internet. So, here is one more, my variation of Martha Stewart’s Worcestershire.
I have to say that the end result was maybe a bit too sweet, as I added some sugar in the end to try to make the sauce thicker (which was unnecessary, the key was just to wait until the excess liquid evaporated). Although I don’t know how sweet it is supposed to be, as I have never taster worcestershire, so I don’t have anything to compare with. Edit: the sauce got same review in vegan sausage experiment: a bit too sweet.
Anyway, in the end I got some tasty nice brown sticky spicy sauce, and I don’t have any idea what to with it. Maybe eat it with some seitan?
