Smokey Garlic Ketchup (vegan friendly)

#Vegan Smokey Garlic Ketchup

The base for this ketchup comes from one of my favourite books The Homemade Vegan Pantry – which provides great basic recipes and also explains the science behind store cupboard staples.

I was surprised how incredibly easy and fast it is to make ketchup – I’m a complete convert to the homemade version.


The Basic Ketchup

1 1/3 cups tomato paste

2/3 cup water

1/3 cup apple cider vinegar

1/4 cup sugar

2 teaspoons sea salt

Adjust the following items to taste, or add your own combination of flavours

2 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed

1 1/2 teaspoon paprika

1 teaspoon chilli flakes

Splash of Ale


Sterilised jar

Bowl and spoon (or food processor)

Funnel (not necessary but handy)


Put all of the ingredients into a bowl or food processor.  Stir/mix well until combined, and the sugar and salt have dissolved.

Funnel the liquid into the sterilised jar and keep in the fridge.


  1. Thank you for the follow. Love the details you have put in the ‘about’ section. My idea of an idyllic life 🙂 Also, the garlic ketchup sounds fab. Have to give this garlicky boy a try.
