Tomato Onion Relish with Lemon Essential Oil

This relish is great in place of tomato sauce on burgers and can also be served over cooked pasta. You can remove the tomato seeds or leave them in. The sauce should be tangy, so add enough honey, vinegar and Lemon essential oil to taste.

Makes 1½ cups

Prep Time 10 min.

Cooking Time 10 - 15 min.


1 tsp. Coconut oil

1 Large tomato, finely chopped

1 Small onion, finely chopped

1 tsp. Apple cider vinegar, to taste

1 tsp. Honey or maple syrup, to taste

1 tbsp. Mint or parsley, finely chopped

¼ tsp. Sea salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

1-2 drops Young Living Lemon essential oil, to taste


1. Heat the coconut oil in a medium saucepan over medium/high heat, add the rest of the ingredients and cook while stirring often for approx. 10–15 minutes. Look for the tomatoes to break down and release their juice, the onion to get tender and for the relish to reduce and thicken. Be careful not to burn; reduce heat if needed.

2. Cool and set aside for the burgers. You can also refrigerate for up to 7 days or freeze the leftovers for up to 1 month.
