  • 3. Serve on veggie burgers and don't forget your raw mayonnaise (yummy)!! Or serve this raw ketchup recipe on top of raw macaroni and cheese. :)

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

Raw ketchup recipes that have the right ketchupy texture aren't that easy to find.

This recipe is pretty easy and can be made instantly without any soaking or prepping. All you need is a blender.

Of course, you can serve this raw ketchup recipe on raw burgers or any other raw meal that calls for ketchup! The texture is really perfect, the first time I made it it turned out perfectly without any tweaking. After I refrigerated my leftover ketchup for a day, there was a little bit of oil separation, which I drained off. Other than that, I have no improvements to suggest.

Grab your blender and start making raw ketchup already!

Thank you so much. Raisins I do have. With this heat the sun is turning my grapes into raisins before I get a chance to pick them. Lol. Now off to get a "baking".

Hi Kahontiyo, It depends on the size of your dates, but I think 2-3 dates sounds perfect

Hi i was just wondering how many dates to use - you say 2 Tbs but is that equal to 2-3 dates?

Despite it being a little salty for me I had some in my romaine wrap today and it really made it delicious :)

Hi I'm not sure where I went wrong mine doesn't look like yours it's quite an orange looking colour it has the consistency of ketchup almost thou but it's extremely salty even thou I put less salt in then your recipe states :( oh dear just looked now and found the culprit apparently my pack of sundried tomatoes is only 89% the rest is salt is that normal I've never brought them before?

As you noticed, the tomatoes may have been the culprit. Flavor and consistency will vary depending on brand, flavor, etc.

Love this-have been missing ketchup since I had to go off garlic and onion. I use 3-4 medjool dates. 1 1/2 tsp sea salt. I don't find the olive oil overwhelming at all. I am trying to get up the nerve to add a bit of asafetida powder for just a bit of a kick.

Raw ketchup recipe

This. Is. AMAZING! I've been looking for a better 'ketchup' for the kids. Massive hit! I used raisins (no dates left as made your raw brownie last night). They love it - I would agree with Mike the olive oil comes through quite strong, but the kids love it! As do I - if I get to sample any!! Thanks soooo much for this!

Could I use something other than dates? I live out in the middle of nowhere plus we are in the dessert so no dates anywhere to be found. I want to try other recipes on your site as well but the dates keep me from it. Any suggestions?
