Ketchup is a staple condiment that contains few ingredients, most of them plant based; however, some strict vegans avoid refined sugar (which is a common ketchup ingredient) as it is sometimes processed using bone char. The good news is that sugar which is certified organic has not been processed using bone char; therefore, organic ketchup is safe for even strict vegans.
If you aren't concerned about refined sugars, then any ketchup is up for grabs. If you want to avoid refined sugars, simply purchase organic ketchup!
Some of my favorite brands of ketchup are:
But you can use almost any brand because they're all pretty similar.

Tapatio Hot Sauce
Tapatio is a popular hot sauce brand that you will find on the tables of many Mexican restaurants, and you'll be happy to know that it is completely vegan!
Grab a few bottles to keep on hand and add flavor to tofu scrambles, tacos, and sandwiches.
It's similar to Louisiana Hot Sauce which is also vegan.
Frank's Red hot
Guacamole is almost always vegan.
Guacamole is an excellent way to add healthy fats (which help with nutrient absorption of fat soluble vitamins) to a wide variety of meals.

Relish can add a delicious bit of crunch to sandwiches and salads, and the ingredients are almost certainly vegan with most simply containing cucumbers, vinegar, and spices.
If you want to make sure you get the flavor just right and control exactly what ingredients go into it, the best bet is to make your own.
