Syn free BBQ sauce/marinade (slimming world friendly)

Its finally Summer!!! YAY!!!!!!! well its a bit too hot for me right now but that's me being a Brit complaining about the weather.

This recipe is for a fat free and slightly hot BBQ sauce I love this cold instead of ketchup (save your syns for something else!) or you can use it as a BBQ marinade for chicken or pork or anything really and then put it on the BBQ or in the oven.

It's very tasty and quick to make and if made like this will save in the fridge for a few weeks . I usually just keep it in a pyrex jug with some clingfilm over the top and as said saves you using your syns on ketchup but also means you can have lovely sticky BBQ chicken drumsticks or thighs (skin removed) also very good with lean pork chops or salmon fillets or quorn sausages well try anything you like its syn free!!

BBQ sauce

1 onion (peeled and chopped)
4 tsp mild chili powder
1 carton (500g) passata (sieved tomatoes)
4 tbsp splenda (or equivalent)
8 tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 tbsp worcestershire sauce
1 tsp dry mustard powder
spray oil
salt and freshly ground black pepper

Spray a pan with the spray oil and add the chopped onion, Fry on a low heat until onion is soft.

Add the remaining ingredients apart from salt and pepper, Bring to the boil them simmer for 10 minutes until thickened, Taste to see how much salt and pepper is needed and season to taste. If you want a smooth sauce then blend or leave the onion in it so its a little chunky whatever you prefer.

Serve hot or cold
