Super Quick BBQ Sauce

I made these Pumpkin-Chickpea burgers with Cumin and needed some sort of sauce to go with it; sort of – complement the flavor and give it a little wetness.  Sloppiness.  While dry sandwiches are edible, people don’t normally go for a Good, Dry sandwich.  (Unless you’re THAT person.)  Think about it.  The key component of a BLT is: Mayo.  Grilled cheese?  Gooey.  Melty.  We add tomatoes and pickles to burgers.  And, top it off with condiments.

After making these burgers, I decided my sandwich needed some kick.  A little… sloppiness.  I tossed around 4 ingredients in a bowl (including water!) and came up with this Quick BBQ Sauce.
