Homemade BITCHIN' Sauce Recipe

I love Bitchin' Sauce. A sparky 16-year old vegan named Starr creates several flavors, and all of them are amazing. But lately, store shelves have been empty. Luckily, the list of ingredients is transparent and pure--it reads like recipe. Until stores reopen, try this cheap and easy homemade BITCHIN' Sauce recipe.

Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup almonds soaked if possible--see recipe notes; substitute walnuts or cashews; Nut free? See recipe notes for options
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup yeast flakes optional--it's still great without if you don't have any
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice substitute lime juice or other vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar substitute other vinegar or more lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp. tamari substitute soy sauce of choice or Coconut aminos for soy free
  • 1-2 garlic cloves
  • 1 Tbsp. onion powder
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 1/4 tsp. smoked paprika
  • 4 ounces canned jalapenos substitute green chilis or chipotle peppers (or 1/4 tsp. chipotle pepper powder or cayenne)
  • 14 ounces canned stewed tomatoes

Instructions
 

  • Blend all of the ingredients except for jalapenos and tomatoes until creamy and smooth. Once it's smooth, add jalapenos and tomatoes and pulse until only small chunks remain. It's okay if you don't want chunks--puree until smooth.

Notes

Why soak?I soak nuts, legumes and grains whenever possible for maximum nutrient availability and digestibility, I buy in bulk (saves money), soak for 12-24 hours and then dry and store in freezer. Then they are always ready to go. Learn more about the importance of soaking nuts and beans.
Nut-free? If you are nut free, substitute riced cauliflower, steamed potato, pumpkin or sesame seeds, tofu or a can of white beans. Depending on your choice, you may not need the 1/2 cup of water. Add water at the end if your Bitchin' sauce is too thick.
Sticky Blender Solution: Did you know that your blender will wash itself? Yep. Just fill it 2/3 water and a drop of dish soap. Blend until clean. This recipe is inspired and dedicated to Bitchin' Sauce, made in Carlsbad, CA. Support small businesses doing great things!
