Ketchup is a great condiment when made right. My kids love it on hotdogs, meatloaf and with our homemade sweet potato fries (all made vegan of course.) I don’t like that a lot of them are loaded with preservatives and sugar. I found a recipe, that my family likes. The original recipe is here from I found that this recipe is great for the times we cooks can’t get to the fresh produce to make our items from scratch.


Homemade Ketchup

This is an easy ketchup recipe that is great for those that are unable to get to fresh produce to make ketchup from scratch. It still tastes great and contains natural vegan sugar.

I chose to use the tomato paste that has roasted garlic. I then omitted the garlic powder. I thought it would give it a little more punch of flavor. I also omitted the onion powder as it is an irritant to my stomach. You may wish to add this in if you want the onion flavor. The original recipe called for 1/4 teaspoon.
