This Nashville Hot Sauce is made from cayenne pepper, vegan butter, white vinegar, plus a special seasoning mix. It has the right amount of heat and sweetness, comes together really fast, and is naturally vegan.
I’m a big fan of hot sauces and I already made different versions of this condiment.

What is the difference between Nashville and Buffalo sauce?
The difference between these two sauces are that Buffalo sauce is made with store bought hot sauce like franks.
Nashville is made with cayenne pepper and pepper that means it is prepared without a hot sauce.
How to make Nashville Hot Sauce
In a pot or casserole, melt vegan butter. Add cayenne pepper, garlic, onion powder, smoked paprika, brown sugar, white vinegar, season with a pinch salt and pepper.
Whisk it all together and keep stirring until the sauce beings to simmer.
Let it cool down a bit, then give into a jar or serve immediately over your favorite dish.
I like to serve it over vegan chicken cubes, that I fried before, delicious.
Store leftovers in the fridge for 2 weeks.
Tips and recommendations
You can use canola or grapeseed oil instead of vegan butter, but I really like the buttery flavor.
Need more spice? Add 1 Tbsp more cayenne pepper. But if you are sensitive to heat, I recommend you use less cayenne pepper and go for more brown sugar to create a milder flavor.
