No-Nightshade Ketchup by He Won’t Know Its Paleo


1 cup carrots, peeled and diced
2/3 cup red beet, peeled and diced
1/2 cup yellow onion, diced
2/3 cup water
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup honey
1 tsp sea salt
1/8 tsp clove
1/8 tsp allspice (use with caution for the elimination stage of AIP. You can easily eliminate the allspice and double the cloves.)


  1. Bring water to boil in medium sauce pan. Add beets, carrots and onion. Boil for 10-15 minutes, until tender.
  2. While vegetables are boiling, add remaining ingredients to blender. Strain and add vegetables to blender when they are through cooking.
  3. Carefully blend on high until liquefied.
  4. Return blended mixture to sauce pan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 30 minutes.

SUMMARY:  This ketchup blew us away, it was so good!!! We initially served it to family and friends it passed as the real thing, and when we told them it was homemade and didn’t contain tomatoes they couldn’t believe it! It simply is that good! So, if you’ve been missing ketchup, you’ve gotta make this!
