Mix all ingredients together.

Place your vegan sausages or patties (or mushrooms/skewers) in a large bowl, and pour the marinade over. We used "Fry's Braai Style sausages", but there are plenty of vegan options available these days.

Let them sit for about 30 minutes before putting them on the fire.
