  • Yield: 9 servings 1x


Ready in less than 30 minutes, this healthy Homemade Ketchup enhances the flavour of fries, burgers, meatloaf, and more. It’s also low FODMAP, Paleo, and refined sugar-free.


  • 1 cup strained tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp coconut aminos
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • ½ tbsp garlic-infused olive oil
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper
  • A pinch of ground allspice


  1. In a small saucepan, whisk together all the ingredients.
  2. Set the sauce pan over medium-high heat and bring to a low boil; reduce heat to low (I turn my burner dial down to minimum) and simmer for 20 minutes, whisking occasionally, or until the ketchup is to your desired thickness.
  3. Remove from heat, and once it’s cool enough, taste the ketchup and adjust the ingredients to your taste.
  4. Allow to cool for about 10-15 minutes before applying to food; cool to room temperature before refrigerating.
  5. Enjoy with fries (like my Air Fryer French Fries), burgers (like my Juicy Turkey Burgers), meatloaf, scrambled eggs, or anything you usually eat with ketchup.
  6. Store fully cooled ketchup in an airtight, glass container in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks.


  • Makes 1 and 1/8 cups, which is nine 2-tablespoon servings. If you think you might use more ketchup within 3 weeks, double or triple the recipe using the tools in the top right corner of the Ingredients section of this recipe card.
