Tomato-less BBQ Sauce - Phase 2 Favorite & Metabolism Revolution

I originally wrote this recipe for use in Phase 2 of Fast Metabolism Diet (by Haylie Pomroy), but realized that people everywhere can use this. Super easy to make, it keeps a while in the fridge, and you can customize it to your taste. You wont miss the tomato!


Tomato-less BBQ Sauce

2 bell peppers, any color
1 large onion, halved

Roast these on the grill, or in a 475 degree oven until charred and soft. Let cool.

Remove the seeds from the pepper, and put the pepper an onion in a blender. Add to it:
2-3 garlic cloves
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
3 T vinegar or lime juice
2 T chili powder
2 tsp paprika
2 T hot sauce- your favorite
3-4 T xylitol or coconut sugar*
1/4 - 1/2 cup water


Blend until smooth. Use as you would any other BBQ Sauce.

For those on FMD, this is technically all phase. 

*coconut sugar is only p4 for FMD

  2. I wonder if this would taste anything like ketchup without the chili powder?

    1. I dont think it will taste like ketchup but would be a good alternative for that. Maybe make some jicama fries in p2, and use that as a dip, along with a bunless turkey burger...?

  4. Carolyn, THANK YOU! I made this today and can't wait to use it in several different recipes. I am finally learning to branch out with my FMD options and I know this will be a staple for both me (on FMD) and my family (not on FMD). Looking forward to trying your other recipes in the future. :). Charlie

    1. It's really impossible to say, it depends on the size of the peppers and onions, and how thick you make it.

  7. Does this taste strongly of peppers? I don't like peppers but I'm wondering if the other flavors cover them enough for me to enjoy this! I've been searching for phase 2 sauces!

  8. HI Carolyn,

    Can your sauce be frozen? If not, how long will it last in the fridge?

    1. I'm not sure about freezing it. I rarely freeze anything. I've kept it a couple of weeks in the fridge but honestly, most times, we use it all at one time

  9. Any idea as to how long the veggies need to roast in oven? Trying to decide if I make tonite or tomorrrow. Thanks!

    1. It really depends on the size of the veggies. I would check them after 20 minutes or so

  10. Carolyn, is there a different sweetener option you have tried? maybe stevia. i have a doggie I almost killed with xylitol. not allowed in my house anymore

    1. I have not tried Stevia with this. Truvia may work. Monk Fruit is also approved but I've not used it

  11. Carolyn, Have you ever adapted this as "pasta" sauce? Do you think this is doable? What would your suggestions be?

  12. Caroline - what vinegar do you use with this? White or apple cider? Sounds yummy!

    1. I never use white vinegar for cooking because it's made from corn. I only clean with it. You can use any other vinegar you want.

  14. Carolyn, this is Brenda knight and I am in the process of making this...I have my peppers and onions roasted but I have a question...do you now take the peel off the peppers after roasting them and before adding them to blender or just throw it all in there? thanks...and as you know, I enjoy your recipes tremendously...
