Do you want to know how to make gluten-free, vegan and homemade Worcestershire sauce? Then I’m going to show you a substitute recipe for this Worcestershire sauce that many people know as Perrins sauce because of the original brand, called Lea & Perrins. This brand was the first to market it back in the 19th century, although the original Worcestershire sauce is not vegan, since it contains, for example, anchovies.

Vegan Gluten Free Worcestershire Sauce Ingredients

Let’s take a look at the ingredients in our Worcestershire sauce, which are gluten-free and vegan.

Apple cider vinegar: adds a healthy touch to the vinegar we need.

Tamari – We use this ingredient to make our gluten-free Worcester sauce. In the event that you do not mind whether or not it contains gluten, you can use soy sauce.

Coconut sugar: we can use another sweetener without problem, but if we want it to be a healthier recipe, coconut sugar is the best option.

Garlic powder.

Onion powder.

Ground ginger.

Ground cloves: it will give us a lot of flavor.

Mustard: Ideally, use ground mustard seeds or dry mustard. However, as I did not have it at the time of the recipe, I added mustard sauce.

Tamarind paste: it is optional, although it will also contribute to flavor.

Ground black pepper: to taste, although it gives it a very appetizing spicy touch.
