Vegan Adobo Sauce

I've looked high and low for a good adobo sauce recipe. It's surprisingly easy to enjoy this classic sauce.

Adobo (also known as Adobar) sauce is Spanish in origin, and commonly used as a slow cook marinade. Traditionally this is used as a meat marinate, but it is also a serving sauce and can be used for a number of different faux meat vegan dishes, and other sides. It is also surprisingly good for dipping bread.

Why not given this version of a classic a try?

Vegan Adobo Sauce

  • 1 T oil
  • 6 ancho chilies, finely chopped
  • 1 t thyme
  • 1 t paprika
  • 1 t oregano
  • 4 finely chopped garlic cloves
  • 2 cups vegetable stock
  • 2 t cornstarch mixed with 3 t of cold water
  • 2 t rice vinegar
  • 1/4 t salt
  • 1/4 t pepper


Heat the oil in a medium saucepan until hot.

Add the chilies, thyme, paprika, and oregano along with the garlic to the pan. Saute fora about 2 minutes.

Add the vegetable stock and bring to a boil.

Slowly stir in the cornstarch mixture to the stock, and stir for about 2-3 minutes. The sauce should start to thicken.

Finally, stir in the vinegar, salt & pepper.
