You all asked for it, so here it is. Clean eating healthy ketchup recipe that can be made at home and eaten to your hearts content. Well not literally, but you can definitely have it every day without worrying about your waistline and health.
I will be honest with you. This clean eating healthy ketchup doesn't taste like your usual shop bought version. The reason is because it is not made of tomato concentrate, distilled vinegar, high fructose corn syrup, all of which create the famous ketchup taste. What it does have is proper tomato passata, apple cider vinegar and maple syrup. All of these are much nicer to your body, easier on the digestion and healthier. The consistency and texture is very similar to usual ketchup, but if you want to make it thicker make sure you simmer it for even longer than mentioned in the recipe.
I personally am not the biggest fan of ketchup. The only time I eat it is with my sweet potato fries, the combination of these two is just amazing.

As you know I don’t do difficult recipes, so this is another one that take long , is vegan friendly, absolutely no dairy, no refined sugars and simple ingredients that can be bought in any of your local supermarkets. For this clean eating healthy ketchup recipe I have used spelt flour to help thicken it up, however feel free to use any flour (clean flour that is) which you have hanging around in your cupboards. Also if you don’t have maple syrup go for date syrup or coconut syrup, it will still work nicely. I would even try coconut sugar.
