Smokey, Tangy Homemade Tomato Ketchup

Tomato ketchup is a great accompaniment to almost everything. I made some baked tofu ‘chicken’ the other day for my dinner and wanted to get some extra veg into my meal. I decided to experiment with a tomato sauce and ended up with this – a delicious, smoky, tangy tomato ketchup. It was so delicious, and I have made it at least once a week since.

I’d really recommend making this, especially if you have tomato ketchup a lot. It’s so much nicer than the shop brought kind, especially as you know exactly what’s gone into it. I’ve since had it with a BBQ and the smokiness was fab with my veggie burger. Check out our black bean and sweet potato veggie burger for a delicious summer meal.

: Approx. 600ml

By:

Ingredients
  • 750g tomatoes, chopped
  • 5 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tbsp tomato paste
  • 3 tbsp liquid smoke
  • 3 tsp sea salt
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp chipotle paste
Directions
  • Step 1 Heat your olive oil in a large, heavy bottomed saucepan over a medium heat.
  • Step 2 Once you oil is hot, add in all remaining ingredients and stir to combine.
  • Step 3 Bring the mixture to a boil and then reduce heat to simmer, stirring frequently.
  • Step 4 Keep simmering until the tomatoes have broken down and the mixture has reduced, simmering until it has met your desired consistency.
  • Step 5 If you prefer your sauce smooth, using a blender or stick blender, blend the mixture to make it smooth. I did this to about half the mixture, but kept it a bit chunky.
  • Step 6 Remove from the heat and leave to cool.
  • Step 7 Keep refrigerated until needed.

Coleslaw. A traditional accompaniment to most British BBQs. Creamy and tangy, I used to love it before I turned vegan. Although I was always slightly wary by just how much mayo there used to be.
