Use homemade sugar free tomato sauce on your bun less burgers, with meats, pies and pastries, as well as low carb chips or fries.
Making your own home made sugar free ketchup is so easy to make, tastes delicious and is healthy to boot. You won’t need to buy store bought versions ever again. The flavors in this recipe are divine. Rest assured this recipe is going to become a staple in your house.
WHAT TOMATO SHOULD I USE
You can use sugar free tinned chopped tomatoes or a sugar free passata in it’s place. The recipe also requires tomato paste to thicken the sauce and make it richer. Again, make sure you check for additives such as sugar in any tinned tomato products.
DOES HOMEMADE SUGAR FREE TOMATO SAUCE HAVE CARBS?
Tomatoes do contain natural sugar so if you ate a lot of them you could be pushing your carb limit. Tomato sauce or ketchup is always going to be high in carbs because of this. Because this is a condiment and served on the side of foods, you would be hard pressed to consume a huge number of carbs. If you had 1 tablespoon or 1 serve of this delicious sauce, it contains less than 1 net carb, which is a lot less than the amount you would consume by using a store bought sugar laden brand.
HOW TO STORE YOUR SUGAR FREE TOMATO SAUCE
Because this sauce is cooked off and vinegar is used, it helps your sauce/ketchup to last longer. It should remain fresh in an airtight jar in the fridge for about two weeks. The recipe also freezes really well, so make it in batches to defrost for another time.
