Raw Tomato Sauce (Ketchup) Recipe

Here is a great recipe for an amazing homemade tomato sauce. This sweet sauce is prepared in 10 minutes, and can be used in numerous ways. This sauce (or ketchup) is also a wonderful substitute for ketchups from the store – your children will love it!

It can be served as a dip for raw chunky chips made from kale or sweet potato, or from zucchini. It is a great ingredient for homemade sandwiches or raw burgers. We also use it as a sauce for raw spaghettis (made out of zucchini), or as a sauce for a raw pizza.

And if you are still mostly cooking, then is this raw tomato sauce a healthier alternative to cooked sauces. Watch to let the cooked dishes cool down to 115ºF (46ºC) – so that you can hold it in your hand – before adding the raw ketchup.

Through that, the raw ingredients keep their taste, enzymes, vitamins and minerals.
