Plant-Based Cranberry Sauce

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes
Servings 4


  • Pot
  • Sharp paring knives
  • Wooden spoon
  • Measuring spoons


  • 2 red onions thinly sliced. I used a mandolin.
  • 1 red chilli deseeded and finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove crushed, then finely chopped
  • 250 g fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 225 ml vegan bouillon
  • 1 tablespoon plant-based vegan Worcestershire sauce
  • 100 g caster sugar


  • Put the cranberries, garlic, chilli and onions in a pot and cook for 15 minutes until the mixture starts to soften.
  • Stir in the sugar or your alternative sweetener, stock and cook over a low heat until the liquid has been absorbed.
  • Stir in the Worcestershire sauce, taste, then season.
  • This sauce is the base for the onion tart, but it can also be used as a sauce for your Christmas nut roast.
