DIY Ketchup.

I figured it was time to ketchup a little on my blogsite…


Featured here are lovely roasted yams with very specially homemade ketchup. This was one of the first recipes I created when I first became aware of clean eating. When I learned to read labels, I realized that there were a lot of things in commercial ketchups that I no longer wanted to put in my body (high fructose corn syrup, sugar, white vinegar, refined salt…). It’s always nice to have a quick and easy way to make the clean foods or condiments we don’t want to give up. Ever. And who wants to give up ketchup? No one. So here is my recipe for DIY Ketchup that I am so happy to share with you.


6 oz. (one can) Organic tomato paste
1 tbsp. Maple syrup
1 1/2 tsp. Balsamic vinegar
1/2 tsp. Himalayan salt
1/4 tsp. Onion powder
1/4 tsp. Garlic powder

Mix all ingredients together, transfer to a resealable container, and store in the refrigerator.



Hope you all enjoy!

  1. Hey I’m excited to try this out! Do you think it would be possible to substitute the Balsamic vinegar for Apple Cider and the Maple syrup for something like Stevia? I’m following a Candida Diet cleanse and I have to restrict those 2 items from my diet for the time being.

    • The balsamic vinegar and maple syrup work together to cut the acidity in the tomato paste and give it a caramel flavour. I’m sure the apple cider vinegar would be fine but I’m not sure about the stevia! It might be ok, just w/ a slightly different taste. 🙂
