Ketchup-like tomato sauce

If you are following the Low FODMAP diet, it’s best to avoid anything ready-made, including condiments. Store-bought ketchup often contains onions, garlic and high-fructose sweeteners.Difficulty 2


  • 60ml water
  • 60ml red wine vinegar
  • 120ml tomato paste
  • 2 tbsp garlic infused oil
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground allspice
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper


Combine all ingredients in a pan and bring to a simmer over a medium heat. Stir until the sugar is completely dissolved. You can serve your homemade ketchup straight away or keep in a jar for up to two weeks.

We made this recipe for the family Christmas meal, so we added a dash of cinnamon. I left out the allspice in my first try (it’s not available everywhere), but I noticed that it makes all the difference.
