As a kid I remember putting ketchup on everything- fries, mac and cheese, hot dogs etc. Now that my tastes have matured and I am more aware of the ingredients I put in my body, good old fashioned Ketchup is no longer on my staples list. The main reason I have cut it out is because of the high fructose corn syrup content. (An industrial product extracted through a chemical process making it far from natural)
I have developed a “cleaned up” and flavourful version that is the perfect replacement! This healthy ketchup recipe goes great with burgers, yam fries, breakfast scrambles and more. You can find this recipe in my Dressings, Dips & Sauces eBook along with 50 different healthy versions of your favourite salad dressings, condiments and dips so that you don’t have to sacrifice the flavours you love!
