Worcestershire sauce is a delicious, tangy condiment that's full of flavor. It's especially good in "meaty" vegan dishes like stews, gravies, chili, shepherd's pie, veggie burgers and meatless loaves, seitan pot roast, et cetera; and, of course in barbecue sauces, V-8 juice or anything else tomato-ey, and Bloody Mary's, if that's your thing.
