KC Style RawBQ and Hunan Style RawBQ Sauces and Kabobs

by Loran Van Benthusen

This recipe also involves some time and preparation, which is a matter of becoming intimate with your food which I think is important for us all to do in this society of convenience. Both of these sauces are made from a fresh tomato sauce base and are slightly fermented just by the process of cooking them slowly in the dehydrator.

Raw Tomato Sauce

1 ½ cup fresh tomatoes chopped

3 dates pitted

Blend the tomatoes and dates in high speed blender until very smooth and transfer to a shallow bowl or container. Place in your dehydrator @ 105 degrees for 4 to 6 hours, stirring occasionally. The sauce will thicken and slightly ferment. When it is is to a tomato sauce consistency it is done. This is the base for the next steps and can also be used in an endless number of dishes using tomato sauce. (ie. pizza sauce, spaghetti sauce, ketchup, etc.)

Raw Ketchup

1 ½ cup raw tomato sauce (from above)

½ tsp dried garlic

½ tsp dried onion

1 tbs coconut nectar

½ tsp lemon juice

¼ tsp sea salt

KC Style BBQ Sauce

1 ½ cup raw tomato sauce (from above)

1 tsp dried garlic

1 tsp dried onion

1 tbs coconut nectar

¼ tbs molasses

½ tbs liquid smoke

½ tsp smoked paprika

¼ tsp chipotle peppers dried

½ tsp ground mustard

½ tsp black pepper

1 tbs apple cider vinegar

½ tsp lemon juice

¼ tsp sea salt

1 tsp parsley dried

Combine all the ingredients except the parsley in a high speed blender and blend til smooth. Pour the sauce into a bowl add the parsley and place into dehydrator for 2 to 4 hours @ 105 degrees stirring occasionally. This reduces and thickens the sauce.

Hunan Style RawBBQ Sauce

The difference in this sauce is that instead of using dates for the tomato sauce I used dried apricots.

1 ½ c tomatoes diced and peeled

3 apricots.

Blend the tomatoes and apricots in a high speed blender and dehydrate just like above to get the tomato sauce.

1 ½ cups tomato sauce

1 ½ tsp dried garlic

1 tsp dried onion

1 tbs tamari

¼ tsp ground ginger

1tbs ume plum vinegar

½ tbs coconut nectar

½ tbs orange juice

1/8 tsp of dried red pepper flakes

Combine all the ingredients in a high speed blender and blend til smooth. Pour the sauce into a bowl and place into dehydrator for 2 to 4 hours @ 105 degrees stirring occasionally. This reduces and thickens the sauce.

Now we have our two sauces, we can make our kabobs. You can use just about any vegetable or fruit that you want. I used the following veggies, fruits and fungi on little wooden kabobs:


Melon, cantaloupe, honey dew or any firm melon will do.

Baby portabella mushrooms, but any type of shroom will do.

Zucchini squash


Red Bell Pepper


Basically any type of fruit, veggie, fungi will do as long as you can get it onto a skewer. I usually put the shrooms on whole or halved and the peppers sliced. As for everything else, just peeled and cubed and the melon balled. I usually arrange the various things onto the kabob in a sweet and then savory fashion(ie..mushroom, pineapple, pepper, jicama, zucchini etc..)

So now we have our Sauces and Kabobs, time for the marinade.

Kabob Marinade

¼ cup Tamari

2 Tbs Olive olil

Mix marinade into a shallow baking dish or container long enough to accommodate the kabobs. Place the kabobs one by one into the marinade just enough to cover them and then place them onto dehydrator sheets and dehydrate for 2 hours @ 105 degrees turning them once.


At the end of 2 hours take the trays of kabobs out of the dehydrator and brush on the prospective sauces onto the kabobs on both sides. I then sprinkle the KC kabobs with a little parsley and the Hunan kabobs with sesame seeds. Dehydrate the kabobs for another hour and eat. They are best straight out of the dehydrator warm, but refrigerate well too.
