Homemade BBQ Ketchup -“ideal for sweetpotato fries”


A huge inspiration by avantgardevegan and his bbq marinade for his bbq jackfruit tacos. So we decided to recreate a ketchup for our beloved sweet potato fries and it turned out great.

I dont know how it is for you but I always have been more of a ketchup person rather than mayo, although the Yin & Yang Mayo from the coleslaw stuffed Kumpir as amazing as well.

Other than regular ketchup this version has way less sugar as well as a strong flavor due to the dried sage in it.If you wonder how and where to get one: well, sage basically grows everywhere, you take a bunch and hang it over a dry space and let this rest for about one week.

I personally have a grinder for spices which is super useful but for this, as you are blending it anyway, you can also just throw in the whole leaves.

Hope you enjoy this recipe.
