Basic Nomato Sauce

Well last week was busy with work, so no posts made.  I did however find time to experiment in the kitchen to find an alternative to the Tomato.

A few months ago I took a food intolerance test which showed a sensitivity to Tomatoes, along with MSG, Gluten, Dairy, Wheat and Yeast.  This has made finding appropriate foods a bit of a challenge, especially as I have become a regular Pizza & Paste eater.

I stumbled across a Basic recipe for an alternative to Tomato sauce (http://www.food.com/recipe/basic-nomato-sauce-tomato-free-tomato-sauce-359835) and decided it was about time to give it a go.  Particularly as I had picked up some fresh beetroot at a local farmers market the previous weekend.

The recipe is indeed very simple (although I did not use the Celery and Bay Leaf).  I may have blanched the vegetables rather then just soften them as the sauce was quite bland. Nevertheless I added some herbs and was soon pleased with my creation.  I am eagerly anticipating my next attempt as I will also be looking to make a Creamy Nomato Sauce to hopefully replace what has been my favourite pasta sauce.

If anyone else has tomato alternative recipes then feel free to share.  My difficulties are finding ones that are also gluten, yeast and dairy free.

  1. My entire website is gluten/dairy/tomato free. I’ve got a recipe for a tomato free sauce [http://glutenfreedairyfreenj.blogspot.com/2011/07/tomato-free-pasta-sauce-recipe-gluten.html] that is a little more robust than the one on food.com (its main ingredient is sweet potato but also contains carrots, roasted red pepper and beets as well as herbs and spices). I’ve also got a great recipe for Chicken Cacciatore (in a roasted red pepper sauce)[http://glutenfreedairyfreenj.blogspot.com/2011/11/tomato-free-gluten-free-chicken.html]. While I’m not yeast or MSG free none of my recipes contain either (some of my reviewed products do but I’m not sure how many of these you’ll find in the UK).
