    What would you substitute for the anchovy paste? Some of us have a seafood allergy and it’s actually becoming more prevalent. I make organic vegan Worcestershire Sauce because of my allergies. I can eat all of the beef and pork all day; poultry and seafood, I have problems. Recipes that call for chicken broth, I use beef or pork broth.
