I'm VERY new here.....and I'm searching for something very simple to take to a potluck....what I mean by simple is easy and not too costly....BUT...I'd love to find something not just for my bloodtype (o) but would be at least fairly compatible to my dh who is a B.   Any suggestions?  I guess what makes this difficult is that it needs to feed us completely AND feed others.  We won't be able to eat much if anything that others bring....so I feel it needs to be a casserole or something equally filling and nutritious....so I don't want to just take a side dish of veggies or rice as I don't think that's enough to contain us through the evening.

maybe a rice, turkey casserole using vegetable stock, and veggies.

I have a potluck the end of this month.  I'll have to do the same.  It's to be Mexican so I know I won't be able to eat much. (cheeses, will be in everything)  I thought I'd make muffin cornbread. (amaranth and rice flour) from one of the recipe in the data base. Will be baking them today as a test.

I'd suggest some kind of a casserole with a brown rice base, plus some kind of broth (veggie, beef, or turkey), lots of chopped veggies, and small pieces of meat. You can also add peas and/or great northern beans (good for Os and Bs) if you want to add veggie protein to the dish, either to stretch the meat or if you want to make it vegetarian. I think it would  taste better with meat though, even in small amounts.

If you want to make it compliant for the Bs, don't use chicken or tomato.

My usual solution to potlucks is a tossed salad.

Depending on what is asked for, I will take things that I cannot eat (and hope that I succeed in giving away in leftovers).

Turkey chili.  Everybody loves chili.    I used to make chili for DH to take to work parties.  He brought it in a crockpot, plugged that in when he got there, and by lunchtime it was hot.  He never had any leftovers.

Rice. Rice, rice, rice........!!! (If I'm not mistaken, all the types can eat it.) Put different sauces for it "on the side" if you care to evaluate sauces by blood type.

These are great ideas....thank you everyone.  I decided on a roast with veggies for this particular one coming up....but I love the turkey meatloaf idea and the casseroles mentioned, etc. above....maybe next time (there is one at church every month) I'll take two dishes...the turkey meatloaf and a side dish (casserole, rice, salad, etc.).....thank you!

It is tasty. I've used it for yoga parties and family gatherings and even the veg heads will bend their rules since it isn't red meat and I can point out that it is loaded with veggies and glutein free. You could even skip the butter or ghee(sub more olive oil) and make it totally dairy free. It is specifically designed to be low allergy, it was concocted for an autistic boy who was celiac and egg allergic. Best of all even my Picky little sister loves it.

So Is it in the recipe base? What is is listed as. OK, I'll go have a look. I love the way I can print recipes out from there. I will definitely make this.

Just for you!   Although, using the cut and paste function it was pretty easy - I bet you could have done it...

WOW Thanks!       Didn't know that anyone could add to that base.  Does it do all the nutritional stuff on auto?

It is printed and on the menu.

Oh I see ABJoe put it in base, CGC contributed it.  Thanks to both.  CGC The apple is OK for this family we are all secretors.  I kind of like the apple idea and I've never put fruit in my meatloaf so this will truly be a new experience for my family.

Yes, anyone can add a recipe to the database.  The ingredients need to be selected from the table manually to show the status for each, but the editor can do that if the contributor doesn't do it...

See my recipe above. One of the acceptable glutein free flours mentioned was quinoa. In fact it was the only one mentioned in the original form of the recipe, I just added the other choices of rice and millet because I tested them and they work.

For O nonnies, pears work fine in place of apples.

This is a pretty good idea and would probably be easy to make.  You could add some beans that are favorable for both of you.

Made this recipe last night. Only change was I added 2 garlic cloves to the onions. As I doubled the recipe I baked for an extra 15 mins. It was so delicious! Will be having it for a few nights as there's so much - no complaints from me or mine though as it's so good (and all diamonds). Thanks GCG for sharing!

You are welcome Andy though I must point out that the recipe was developed by another poster, Cpcat67. When she posted it about 6years ago it never made it to the recipe base. BTW I don't add any extra baking time when I double it. I do shape it long and narrow like a baget for parties though. A doubled recipe does go a long way, people forget how much vegetables are in there to bulk it up.
