This is no regular Whole30 ketchup.

No, this is the Whole30 ketchup ofhope. Of Promise.

This Whole30 ketchup recipe means bang bang shrimp and In N Out animal style-inspired burgers and meatloaf. This Whole30 ketchup recipe makes all of those other recipes possible.

And you know what else about this Whole30 ketchup recipe? No dates, sister. No dates, no blending, nada. In fact, I’m sort of anti-dates in a Whole30. For me, they’re total candy, and I found myself noshing on them in the early days of my last round, clearly just staving off that sugar dragon in the laziest of ways. Oh, and speaking of lazy? I’m anti-dates in a sauce because,lazy. Dates in sauces mean blending, more dishes, more hand-washing (Uh, dates are sticky), more justmore.

So this Whole30 ketchup recipe is sweetened a different way–my favorite way, in fact! With the almighty coconut aminos.

What makes this recipe so good

  • It tastes just like “regular” ketchup but is free of added sugars and Whole30 compliant.
  • This Whole30 ketchup recipe includes no dates, meaning no blending!
  • It comes together super easily and keeps in the fridge for a long time.

The thing about coconut aminos is that they’re sweet! They’re sort of salty, but not very. I never entirely replace salt with coconut aminos, but I absolutely love using them to give a recipe a natural sweetness and depth of flavor.

And they’re absolutely perfect in this Whole30 ketchup recipe. It works like this: stir some stuff together, let it simmer, and… you’re done. Easy, easy, easy.

Variations

  • Stir in a bit of my Whole30 sriracha recipe for a spicy take on this Whole30 ketchup.
  • Blend the whole batch with a couple of cloves of garlic for a delicious, garlicky ketchup.
  • Whisk in about 1/2-1 cup of my Whole30 mayo for an awesome and easy creamy dip.

Can you eat ketchup on Whole30?

Yes! And also no. You can have compliant ketchup, like this Whole30 ketchup recipe, or a store-bought version like Tessemae’s. If your ketchup has any type of sugar listed in the ingredients, it’s not compliant. You can check out my Whole30 food list here to make sure you’re avoiding even the sneakiest of sugars!

Which coconut aminos should I buy?

My very favorite coconut aminos are from Big Tree Farms. They’re affordable and super delicious, thick, and rich. I have a bottle in the fridge at all times and a bottle in the pantry as a backup. I don’t play around with coconut aminos, y’all. They’re key in my Whole30 egg roll in a bowl recipe and my Whole30 lettuce wraps, too.

Can I skip the coconut aminos?

No! Please don’t. The coconut aminos give this Whole30 ketchup its sweetness and richness, and you’d be missing a lot of both without it.

How to Make It

Stir together all ingredients in a medium saucepan over low heat; whisk well.

    I’m making this for the first time right now. I think if I make it again I’d use 4 tbs of coconut amino instead of 5. Easy recipe to make and I’ve really been missing my catsup!Whole30 Ketchup Recipe (No Dates, Paleo, Vegan) (14)

      That’s a great question, Emilie, but unfortunately I don’t know the answer! No one on our team really has experience with the dos and don’ts of canning so that’s not something we test with our recipes. Maybe someone who cans things regularly will see this comment though and be able to weigh in!
