This is a strongly flavoured sauce. Good for barbecues and for flavouring plain tofu.

1/2 onion finely chopped
1 clove garlic finely chopped or crushed

1 tsp sea salt
a few twists of fresh black pepper
1/4 tsp black onion seeds (optional for a nice onion flavour)
1/8 tsp smoked paprika (this stuff is strong — less is more!)
1/2 tsp mixed herbs or other dried herbs of your choice (thyme works well)
1/4 tsp mustard flour
1 tbsp rice flour

250ml water or stock
1 tsp extra virgin olive oil (or your preference)
2 tsp tamari sauce
1 tsp tomato purée
1 or 2 shots of Jack Daniels depending on preference
2 or 3 shakes of Tabasco sauce if you like a bit if a chilli kick

Gently fry the onion, garlic and onion seeds until soft. Add the JD and cook for a couple of minutes stirring frequently. This burns off the alcohol and intensifies the flavours as it reduces. Add the water or stock and the rest of the ingredients and bring to the boil stirring constantly and de-glazing aggressively as you go. Simmer gently for 5 or 6 minutes. If you want it to be thicker, simmer and reduce for longer. It also thickens a little more as it cools. Adjust seasoning if necessary.
