I love ketchup, I use it on a lot of things, but obviously it's not whole30, so I went online in search of a paleo/whole30 approved ketchup recipe and found one that looked decent. After I made it, I tasted it and realized it was incredibly bland and watery tasting (no salt and very little vinegar). So I modified it.


1 12oz. can tomato paste

1.5 c. water

1/4 c. pitted dates

6-8 tbs. vinegar (I used white vinegar, but you can use ACV if you really like it)

1.5 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. pepper

1/2 tsp. garlic powder

1/2 tsp. onion powder

1/4 tsp. allspice


Combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor until the dates are finely blended, then pour into a saucepan with a lid and simmer for 5-10 minutes (it splatters a lot, make sure it has a lid!)

I tried a different recipe for ketchup recently and wasn't very pleased. Will be trying this as soon as the other runs out (or I accidentally pour the whole jar into some recipe, ha). Thanks!

I'm using the recipe for Kickass Ketchup as a base -

But I don't like the spices, so instead I use cumin, chili powder, paprika, turmeric, and salt (about 1/4 tsp of each).  I like the color, consistency, and flavor that way.
