Keto as a Way of Life
Keto Ketchup Recipe
Ketchup is King of the Condiments.
Unfortunately, you can’t really find a low carb version of it out there anywhere. So people on Keto are just SOL.
Since Rebecca likes it on her eggs and I like it on everything else, we decided to get in the kitchen and start tinkering with recipes.
After some trial runs and testing out different ingredients, we’ve landed on a Keto Ketchup that we really like. I really just took an old Ketchup recipe that I developed years ago and retooled it. My old recipe had brown sugar in it, so that wouldn’t do for Keto.
The good thing about converting this recipe to Keto is that I used my original in a number of different BBQ Sauce recipes. I’m looking forward to using this as a base for some new Keto Sauce recipes to post for you later…. and also so I can use the sauce on the grill! I’m not not completely altruistic, afterall.
Hopefully, you will enjoy it too.
It’s really easy to put this together and I only have a couple minor recipe notes for you on this on
We tried a few different sweeteners with this Ketchup Recipe and ultimately landed on confectioners Monk Fruit.
- Erythritol gave the ketchup an unpleasant, tinny aftertaste.
- Golden Monk Fruit, which I tried because it’s so much like brown sugar, left a few granules in the finished ketchup. While it tastes great, there’s a slight texture issue. Even after it sets for a while, it doesn’t fully dissolve; though it IS much less noticeable after sitting overnight. If this is all you have, it’ll work.
- Confectioners Monk Fruit: This provided the perfect amount of sweetness and texture. It also didn’t require any cooking, so everything can be mixed together cold and you still end up with a very smooth texture in your final product.

We looked all over the place for a lower carb tomato paste. I just don’t think such a thing exists. We also weighed the possibility of making our own. That’s such a long process, though, we didn’t feel like it was worth it.
The plain old Huntz 6oz cans of tomato paste did the trick for us in this recipe. You can easily find those in any grocery store.
You know what goes great with Ketchup?
Grass fed beef!
More specifically, meatloaf.
We’ve tried Butcher Box and we LOVE their beef. Our next recipe will be a meatloaf that we use Butcher Box beef and our homemade keto ketchup.
I can’t wait to share that with you and for you to try it!
