  • 4 Tablespoons tomato paste
  • ½ cup distilled white vinegar
  • 4 Tablespoons organic maple syrup
  • 2 (or more) Tablespoons raspberry jam (or other complementary WFPB jam flavors) we used St. Dalfour Red Raspberry Jam*


  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 Tablespoons dried minced onions
  • ¼ teaspoon sweet paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon dried ground mustard powder
  • ¼ teaspoon ground clove
  • ¼ teaspoon ground allspice
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt (+/-) *


  1. Place all the ingredients into a small sauce pan, stir well and cook for 10 minutes.
  2. Serve as a condiment on your favorite burger, as a dipping sauce with oven-baked French fries or fondue style with Vegan Cocktail Meatballs.


*Jam: We love St. Dalfour’s France All Natural Ingredient Jam as it is 100% fruit. Raspberry jam works perfectly.

*Amount of Jam: We enjoyed a tangy chili sauce with the meatballs which meant using less jam (2 Tablespoons); however, you can easily add more jam to create a sweeter sauce.

*Tips:  The viscosity of the sauce is largely dependent on how you use it. If needed add a Tablespoon (or more) of water to thin it out.

*Sea Salt: Please adjust the sea salt based upon your family’s sea salt preferences and/or based upon dietary needs.

*Makes:  Approximately 2/3 cup sauce

*Storage:  Refrigerate, use within 7 days.
