Vegan Ketchup

Vegan Ketchup PinThis 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.

Smokey Green Hot Sauce

Smokey Green Hot Sauce PinThis Smokey Green Hot Sauce is a delicious and spicy way to save money. Hot sauce is freaking expensive!

We were spending $10 a week on hot sauce and salsa since we started using them as flavorful and healthy toppings for many of our dishes. A regular 16oz jar of salsa or a 6oz bottle of hot sauce goes for $3 to $5. This recipe makes about 24oz and costs less than 4$ to make!

This smokey green hot sauce is a good topping for your Easy Tofu Scramble, Boiled Potatoes, Baked Potatoes, Vegan Chili or any other dish that needs a little extra spice. You can also use it as a dip for your Corn Tortilla Corn Chips.

If you want to make it extra spicy, add one or two small habanero peppers during Step 1. It might induce a little sweat when you eat it, but it’s absolutely delicious!

Vegan Gluten Free Chocolate Cake

Vegan Gluten Free Chocolate Cake PinThis vegan gluten free chocolate cake is moist, chocolatey and delicious. There is no way you can tell this cake is both gluten free and vegan. It ranks right up there with the best chocolate cakes I’ve ever had.

If gluten isn’t an issue for you, you can probably use regular flour, but that’s not how we made it so we can’t attest to how it’ll turn out.

Using top-notch ingredients is important for any recipe, but none more-so than when baking. You can literally taste and see the difference so spend the extra money and buy high-quality, organic ingredients for your baking recipes. Especially if you’re going to feed them to non-vegans.
