What is Nomato Ketchup and why?

You might ask yourself this question as a reader when you can eat basically anything.

As I reported in previous blog posts, I cannot eat everything – at least not if I want to feel healthy. For example, I have to avoid nightshade vegetables and also watch out for histamine and certain types of acids.

Nevertheless, I missed ketchup and tomato sauce a bit. The AIP community had a solution: ketchup without tomatoes – that is, Nomato Ketchup. However, I modified the recipe a little with the addition of sweet potato. I also use allspice, so it is no longer AIP-friendly. On the other hand, it has no added sweeteners and balances the blood sugar.

Ingredients:

  • 2 tsp olive oil (Crete)
  • 2 tsp coconut oil
  • 2 large carrots (100 g), grated
  • 1 small to medium sweet potato (165 g), grated
  • 1 medium red beetroot (165 g), grated
  • 1 small to medium onion, finely chopped
  • 2 allspice seeds
  • 1 clove
  • 1 Tbsp. undiluted sea buckthorn juice
  • 1 Tbsp. brine of home-made preserved lemons (alternatively: lemon juice)
  • salt to taste
  • 2 cups (470 ml) water

Tip: If you tolerate acidity and do not have to watch out for histamine, you can also use apple cider vinegar instead of the sea buckthorn juice and the brine of preserved lemons.

On the plants are a bicoloured butterfly in two shades of pink with a brown body and a brown snail.

Method of Preparation:

  1. Heat 2 tsp coconut oil and 2 tsp olive oil in a medium saucepan and add the grated root vegetables with the chopped onion, allspice and clove. Sauté over medium heat until lightly caramelised and softened.
  2. Add 2 cups (470 ml) of water and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer for 1 hour. The vegetables should be completely soft.
  3. Remove from the heat and stir in the sea buckthorn juice and the brine from the preserved lemons. Season to taste with salt.
  4. Leave to cool and then process in a food processor until smooth. Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator for no more than four days or freeze.

Tip: If you vary the spices a little (for example, use green pepper instead of chilli) without processing the mixture further in the food processor after cooking, you will get a great salsa.

This ketchup is very tasty and healthy. Of course, you can vary the spices. I am still working on a curry mix without Solanaceae.

We like to eat the ketchup with soy sausages, vegetable fries and anything else you would eat tomato ketchup with.

If you thin it out a little with water or vegetable stock, you get a good alternative to tomato sauce. I could imagine that you could also use a little apple juice to thin it out.

By the way, I make a vinegar-free mustard on the fly by stirring ground mustard seeds and a little turmeric powder into homemade yofu and salting it to taste. Made in small quantities, I then use up this yofu mustard quickly. Fermented soy products and tempeh seem to work well for me. It may not be the same for every person.

Do you have certain dishes that give you comfort and cosiness? What are they?

Are you ready to shine a bright light of awareness on the path of beingness, today?

Much Love,
