Hi, I am just starting the BTD with my partner this week and we both love this sweet and sour chicken dish I make, the only problem is that we need to avoid tomatoes and my recipe has diced tomatoes and ketchup it it. What do other people do about this?

there s a recibase here, a button on the left margin of the home page.

look for the 'faux tomato sauce', to get ideas.

people like to use pimento instead of tomato for certain dishes, making them compliant.

typebase is where you find the most updated food values.....top button on this page:

In sweet and sour dishes I use plums.... either as a chutney - or as a marmelade or fresh.
In italian dishes I use peppers or the carrot/beet recipe.

ADDED later- sorry didn┤t see that you were a A....

chile_chicken, wishing you a warm welcome to BTD and the forum!!

IMHO, add spices last and start w/ small amounts - taste as you go. This is prob a really good recipe, but for me, all of the spices suggested made it unedible.

here s the recipe:

Quoted Text
No tomato Tomato Sauce
Ingredients
2 1/2 C steamed carrots, 1/3 C steamed beets, 2/3 C Water, 3 Tbsp Lemon juice, 1 1/2 tsp Salt, 1 Tbsp Basil (leave out for Chili),1/2 tsp Onion Powder, 1/8 tsp Oregano, 3/4 C chopped, cooked onions (I use dried flakes but not this much), 1 clove minced Garlic.

Directions
Steam carrots and beets until tender. Brown onion & garlic together. Measure all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. Add cooked ground meat or meatballs for spaghetti sauce. Or use as is for pizza sauce. Omit Basil for Chili and use as you would normally. It freezes nicely in a canning jar. Remember to allow about an inch at the top and tighten jar lid after sauce freezes.


garlic more onion and spices.

This makes a great sub for tomatoe sauces.  I've made it a few times for a chili substitute for my B husband who is a very fussy eater and he always likes it - and even knows it's made from carrots and beets - the beets would normally scare him away - but he even eats it.

That is a wonderful recipe (posted by Lola, above).  Also, I've heard that ume plum paste is a decent substitute for tomato paste, and you can build your sauce from there.

Welcome chile_chicken,

I always like to recommend pimentos for a tomato substitute.

Albeit, they are not always available fresh, fresh whole pimentos can pass for a tomato in terms of appearance for prsentation purposes, and pimentos are usually sold in jars in the grocery stores--just make sure there are no avoids.

Pimentos add that lovely red color that tomatoes provide.

Thanks for all your advice. I will try and see if I can find any pimientos in my supermarket, I live in New Zealand so a lot of the stuff is very hard to find in mainstream shops and being in the country. I also think that red capsicums would be ok.

chile_chicken,

I want you to be aware that if red capsiums are the equivalent of red peppers, they would be an avoid food item for A secretors.

No, it was more in the North Island and I am waaaay down south. OK, my partner can have tomatoes and I can have sour cream, but I have to seperate them. Still, I have found a lot of great recipes. I am going to try the 20 minute meatloaf tonight. It is my first time using tofu, I have to go buy some today. Wish me luck!
