Vegan Worcestershire Sauce Recipe

Traditional Worcestershire sauce has anchovies, making it non-vegan. However, some recipes that would otherwise be vegan, call for Worcestershire sauce. This recipe provides an option for vegetarians and vegans.

If you are familiar with Worcestershire ingredients, you probably know molasses is usually on the list. Instead, I used brown sugar in this recipe. I’m simply more likely to have it on hand. If you happen to have molasses on hand and don’t have brown sugar, substitute the brown sugar with 1/8 cup of sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of molasses.
