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?
