A few months ago I became sick of both liking ketchup a lot while not liking the 20 calories per serving (and corn syrup) in the ketchup I usually buy. I reduced it to around 7 calories a serving (complete nutrition below). This is an easy, cheap, and low carb and no sugar added recipe. It also tastes great. Enjoy!

This makes about 1.5 cups of ketchup, if you water it down to the levels I do (some days I stretch it more). Depending on your desired thickness or spice, you can alter the levels of water, vinegar, and spices. The more vinegar you add, the tangier it will be, resembling Arby’s sauce.

2, six ounce cans of tomato paste
.75 cup water
.75 cup white vinegar
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp salt substitute (Morton’s Lite Salt)
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tsp mustard powder
1 tsp coriander
Stevia to taste

Empty into a large bowl. Whisk or blend.
