How to Make Vegan Worcestershire Sauce

Worcestershire sauce is a very useful ingredient in a variety of recipes. However, there are only a few vegan brands on the market, they are expensive ($0.52 to $0.82 per oz) and are not readily available. Also, only one vegan brand has a gluten free option, and it is $1.53 per oz!

This vegan and gluten free Worcestershire sauce takes just 20 minutes to make, tastes fantastic, and only costs $0.11 per oz! It takes quite a few ingredients to get just the right flavor, but this Worcestershire sauce is really easy to make. Here is what you will need:

Dulse is a seaweed, and it substitutes very nicely for the traditional anchovies:

Add all the dry ingredients to a small bowl, then stir them together. You can find the recipe for Magickal Seasoning Blend here.

Add all of the liquid ingredients to a small saucepan, and whisk to combine:

Add the dry mixture to the liquid, and whisk until all the clumps are gone:

Bring the sauce to a boil:

Reduce the heat, and simmer for 5 minutes:

Remove from the heat, and allow to cool:

You will need a 15 oz or bigger bottle to hold your Worcestershire sauce. Use a funnel to pour your sauce into the bottle:

My bottle wasn’t quite big enough, but that extra bit is going right into a big pot of “beef” broth! (Be sure to subscribe if you want to get notified when I post the broth recipe!)

You now have amazing vegan and gluten free Worcestershire sauce!

    1. Hi! Great question! I am not sure, but have some in my fridge from over six months ago, and it is still good. It is vinegar-based, so should last for quite awhile.

I love hearing from you! Please leave a comment!
