This Vegan Ketchup recipe is easy and cheap. Plus, there’s no high fructose corn syrup or other nasty ingredients. It’s just delicious, healthy ketchup.
The world’s most popular ketchup (starts with an H) is made with high fructose corn syrup and corn syrup. These are the 3rd and 4th ingredients on the label so that tells us they’re primary ingredients. Unless it’s organic, we can assume it’s made with GMO corn, as well. And “natural flavoring” is always a mystery ingredient.
This ketchup recipe only takes a few minutes to prepare and only contains real ingredients. We include 1/2 tbsp organic sugar to cut the acidity of the tomato paste and make it a little sweeter, but you can omit that if you want to. You can also substitute stevia or another non-sugar sweetener.
This recipe makes a full cup (8 oz). If you eat ketchup on everything, you may want to make a double batch so it lasts longer.
