Homemade Ketchup

by Amie on January 27, 2010

Here is a fabulous recipe that I use to top my bean burgers and use as a dip with my veggie fries…this ketchup is a health alternative to the store bought, processed ketchup brands that are full of sodium, additives and HFCS!

Ingredients

  • 2 tsp. stevia
  • 1 (6 oz.) can organic tomato paste
  • 2 medium Roma tomatoes, diced
  • 1/4 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1 tsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp. dried cilantro
  • 1/8 tsp. curry powder
  • 1/2 tsp. brown rice miso paste
  • 1 tsp. of white balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp. nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp. flax seeds
  • Dash of sea salt and pepper, to taste

Directions

  • In a medium sized bowl, combine all of the above ingredients. Whisk together until fluffy texture.
  • You can also use a hand electric mixer; this will ensure a whipped ketchup consistency.
  • Enjoy!

Do you know the nutritional values by chance? Just curious how it stacked up. Although I have zero doubt that it’s healthier and tastier! What’s the diff in brown rice miso paste and white miso paste? I just figured out where to find the paste finally.

Heather,

I do not know the nutritional values…sorry but I hope you enjoy the homemade ketchup as it’s quite delish. Also, I love the brown rice miso in this recipe because the white is too sweet for this particular recipe. I love all miso pastes, there are so many to choose from and they’re all amazing; I’m sure you could use white miso in this recipe, however I opted for the brown to control the sweetness in this ketchup! Enjoy!

This sounds great. I love that it uses stevia for sweetening, and the flax seeds and nutritional yeast are such interesting add ins

Okay…does it really taste good? I’m a total Heinz ketchup girl, even though I know it’s not good for you….
