Tomato Sauce or “Ketchup” is a staple in many recipes and a pain to make sometimes, when I am low on time. I am all for cooking a sauce when required – many require cooking out the sauce, most with onion, and are mostly too chunky to store in a squeeze bottle, unless strained first. So when short on time or if you just want a simple sauce to keep on hand, look no further!
This one is very simple, easy and takes 30sec to put together, provided you have all the ingredients, which are mainly staples in my house.
- 500g jar tomato paste
- 7 Tbs apple cider vinegar or red wine vinegar
- 2 tsp honey or coconut nectar (optional)
- 1 cup water (you can add more for your desired consistency)
- 1 tsp mustard powder
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp chilli
- 1 tsp smoked paprika
- 1 tsp salt
Stir all ingredients together until well combined and put into your favourite squeeze bottle. Keep in the fridge for up to 3 weeks. Always date your sauces so you know when to check them out. If it has mould, throw it out – duh! Luckily it only takes seconds to make. Yay!
