You have to try this Whole30 Ketchup, especially if you are a condiment lover!

Whole30 Ketchup! So simple to make and a perfect addition to all those eggs! Paleo, sugar-free and full of flavor!

I have a MASSIVE obsession with ketchup (and now my Whole30 Ketchup!).  I am the person that squirts ketchup ALL over my eggs and scoops as much as possible onto my fries.  A friend of mine in college both had this love and probably took it too far at Denny’s a time or too. Oh college!  But now I am on a clean food path and times had to change!  When I realized that being on Whole30 meant lots of eggs in many forms, I knew I would need to make a compliant ketchup quick!!  Dates are the most beautiful sweet bundles of YUM in the world and I am so happy that are Whole30 approved.  I used them to sweeten this ketchup and was so surprised at how good it turned out.  We ate it this weekend with these Chicken Tenders and some sweet potato fries and it was perfect!  It’s obviously different than Heinz… but it’s more like a super tasty tomato dip… which I think is what ketchup is supposed to be!  Dips/ Sauces are my jam on Whole30 and save your life to have them on hand.   I also add this ketchup in my Clean Thousand Island Sauce that I love to use on burgers!

How Whole30 Ketchup comes together:

The best part about this Whole30 Ketchup recipe is how easy it is to throw together.    You just throw a couple of ingredients in a pan and let it simmer for a bit, then throw it in a blender until its nice and smooth and voila! Ketchup!  I used fire roasted tomatoes in this and it added the best flavor.  You can totally use regular ones though if you have them on hand!

    This is great, I am also addicted to Heinz ketchup and have never liked anything else. When you said it is like a tomato dip, my brain said “Oh! I could like that!!” Great job!

      Hi Julie! I used it for about 2 weeks after making it. I haven’t tried freezing it but I am sure that would work! If you try it let me know. Thanks! 🙂

    This is so easy to make. Just made it for the first time today. Started Whole 30 last week and was dreading not having any sauces or even ketchup to dip things in… So happy to have found this recipe!!!

    I have never been one to leave reviews for recipes and I have been an avid home cook for years. After starting my Whole30, I really feel an urge to let others know when recipes are great, because it’s normally a hit or miss. This was SO good. Easy to make and enhanced so many of my Whole30 meals 🙂

    This recipe is amazing! I was getting worried going into week 2 of whole30 and this seriously saved me! I used this ketchup recipe to make some whole30 sloppy Joe’s and it was just what I needed! I will continue to make this long after whole30 is over! Thanks so much!!!
