Tomato Free AIP Ketchup

  • Author: Michelle
  • Total Time: 1 hour 5 minutes
  • Diet: Gluten Free


  • 1 1/2 cup carrots, chopped
  • 3/4 cup beets, chopped
  • 1 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 1/4 cup apple sauce
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper (omit for AIP)


  1. Add water to the base of a pot or deep pan, and place a steamer basket over the water. Add the beets and carrots into the steamer basket and cover. Bring to a low simmer and steam for 25-30 minutes or until completely soft. Set the carrots and beets aside.
  2. Carefully reserve 1/3 cup of the water used to steam the carrots and beets. This helps retain the red color in the ketchup. Set aside.
  3. Heat the avocado oil over medium heat in a pan and saute the diced onion for 4-5 minutes or until lightly translucent.
  4. Allow the onion, carrot, beet, and water to cool before adding to a blender. Add the remainder of the ingredients to the blender and blend on high until fully smooth.
  5. Transfer to an airtight glass container and allow to chill before serving.
