This healthy low sugar ketchup recipe comes together in about five minutes, making it a convenient alternative to the store-bought variety!
Ketchup or catsup?
I prefer the former.
My biggest problem with conventional (and even 'healthy') store-bought ketchup is obviously the sugar content.
I've never been a huge ketchup fiend, but I do enjoy a little on a burger, meatloaf, and fries.
One of my childhood friends would eat the sweet condiment straight from the packets, she loved it so!
The Best Ketchup Partner
This recipe comes about due to my current fixation on fries. Oh, fries, how do I love and crave thee right now!
I bake my own fries by mixing some sliced russet potato with avocado oil and pink salt. Bake at 425 for about 25-35 minutes until golden and crispy, and you've got yourself a scrumptious snack or dinner side.
I love dipping my fries into this healthy alternative to sugary ketchup, and this recipe comes together so fast! In addition to burgers and fries, I've also used this atop a grain-free meatloaf I make, and it works very well.
Even my candy-loving kids are crazy for this recipe, so I hope you enjoy it too if you try it!
