The coconut aminos give this Whole30 ketchup its sweetness and richness, and you’d be missing a lot of both without it. Stir together all ingredients in a medium saucepan over low heat; whisk well. Simmer until a bit reduced and thickened, about 20 minutes. Salt to taste.
It’s easy to find potato, tortilla, or plantain chips that are compatible with the Whole30 based on their ingredients. It is not easy, however, to consume those chips in a way that’s true to the spirit of the Whole30.
On the Whole30, Can I Have Yes, you can have almond flour, coconut flour, tapioca flour, cassava flour and other non-grain-based flours, but it’s context-dependent. You can use it in place of breadcrumbs in your meatballs, to dredge a piece of chicken, or to thicken a sauce or stew.
Unfortunately, most of the ingredients in a classic BBQ sauce are a no-go on the Whole30 diet, like ketchup, molasses, and brown sugar. Luckily, so long as you find some organic pork, you can whip up some pulled pork in your crock pot with The New Primal’s BBQ sauce.
How Is Whole30 Ketchup Sweetened?
Many recipes use dates as the sweetener in Whole30 compliant ketchup but I am unable to eat dried fruit right now, so I came up with a different plan. Coconut aminos are naturally very sweet and I used them liberally when I want a sweet flavor in an otherwise savory dish.
I use ketchup as the base for barbecue sauce, in homemade secret sauce for burgers (recipes for these will both be coming soon) and on occasion for dipping oven baked fries in (although I’m more partial to my Homemade Mayo -based sauces.) It’s also used to make classic dressings like Russian, Thousand Island and Crab Louis.
First of all, you control all the ingredients which means you can use organic tomato paste rather than conventional. Tomatoes are on the Dirty Dozen list and you want to avoid buying conventional. The only exceptions I make are when I’m eating out and can’t control where tomatoes are coming from; at home, every tomato product is organic.
