Free and Friendly Foods Sweet Squash Pizza

Fall Feature – Sweet Squash Pizza

Fall has really arrived. It was cold last night. Yup, summer is gone now. We were all huddled around the stove this morning… perhaps it’s really winter? Nonetheless, each Monday this month, we will be collaborating with @dana_aversa (Happy Herbivore) on Instagram. Each week, we will both bring you a spectacular way to approach the same dish. This week, it’s pizza!!

We’ve each decided to use squash on our pizzas. I think it’s safe to say that ours is sweet, while Dana’s is savory. She also has a great lentil crust recipe. If you can’t have yeast, be sure to read her methods.

Free and Friendly Foods Dessert Date Pasta

Dessert Date Pasta (Sauce) Recipe

If you were to ask Kid Two, he’d tell you that I saved the best for last. He couldn’t stop raving over how good this sauce was. It was rich, deep, and tasted like dessert. However, he did tell me later that it’s like pasta or cream sauce, you can’t eat too much of it. Yet, it was soooo good, he still wanted more. Makes me giggle to myself thinking about it.

Free and Friendly Foods Organic Chicken Pasta

Organic Chicken Pasta (Sauce) Recipe

Can you believe Non-Traditional Pasta Week is almost over? The week has zoomed by so fast. I hope you’re having a great time in the kitchen trying new recipes! Today’s pasta sauce was inspired from Sweet Curry Chicken Fried Rice. It’s in our Everyday Meals volume one cookbook. It also comes from something I use to make the kids when they were much younger – pan-fried chicken thigh. I would prep chicken thigh, and let it cook in butter. Honestly, it was that simple. Add a little salt, and they were all happy. One of my favorite personal features about this sauce is the veggie inclusion. They’re masked a bit, and I love knowing that the kids are eating plenty of vegetables. If you’re not a fan, or would prefer a different vegetable, make the change. I hope this brings warmth to your tummies!

Free and Friendly Foods Cranberry Tuna Pasta

Cranberry Tuna Pasta (Sauce) Recipe

Our Non-Traditional Pasta Sauce of the day is Cranberry Tuna. This is a play on the fact that Kid Two loves tuna and loves cranberries. You’ll notice throughout the week that each sauce does not use sugar like conventional pasta sauces call for. Instead, each one calls for a natural sweetener to liven things up. You could always reduce the amount of fruit used, or go without it completely. These recipes should serve as a guide and/or idea generator 🙂

Allergy Status: Wheat/Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Egg Free, Soy Free, Nut Free, Peanut Free, Yeast Free, Corn Free, Cane/Refined Sugar Free, Sesame Free, Legume Free, Diabetic Friendly, Paleo, GAPs, Vegan Compatible, Onion & Garlic Free

For Vegan: Use a vegan, fish free tuna, such as this. However, if you’re avoiding soy, you may not be able to find a safe product.
For Corn Free: Source safe ingredients. Consider using a no-salt can of tuna, and adding a little extra as you cook. Also make sure that the cranberries are safe for you. Some brands have sulfates, and others add cane sugar etc. to the mix. Yellow Barn and Bio Naturae are safe tomato sources at the time of this writing. Read More

Free and Friendly Foods Carrot & Zucchini Pasta

Carrot & Zucchini Pasta (Sauce) Recipe

It’s (Non-Traditional) Pasta (Sauce) Week! This is the first of five very special creations to be released. Do we have time for a story? Great. Gather round everyone. So, in the food allergy world, the Top 8 get most, if not all of the attention. I can completely understand this from a marketing and squeaky-wheel standpoint. However, I’m not called the Top 8 Chef. I’m called The Allergy Chef. My goal has always been to cater to everyone, and perhaps that mission may get the best of me someday, as you can’t please everyone all the time. Nonetheless, that won’t stop me from trying to create dishes that everyone can enjoy. I’ve recently heard from several people about their onion, garlic, nightshade, and “traditional” spice allergies. I had one person ask for ideas on how to not have bland pasta. My first answer was, truthfully, I eat plain food because that’s all I can have. I then listed off many different ideas they could try, and they were thankful. It was that very conversation, and one other in particular, that lead me to create these recipes. It’s so easy in the allergy world to meet the needs of most people, but I want to make sure that no one slips through the cracks around here. OK, story time is over. Pack up your blankets and pillows. We have food to cook.

Allergy Status: Wheat/Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Egg Free, Soy Free, Nut Free, Peanut Free, Yeast Free, Corn Free, Cane/Refined Sugar Free, Sesame Free, Legume Free, Diabetic Friendly, Paleo, GAPs, Vegan, Garlic Free, Onion Free

For Corn Free: Source safe ingredients. Be sure your tomato sauce doesn’t have citric acid or any other additives (Yellow Barn and Bio Nature are good brands at the time of this writing). Make sure your produce is dirty. Anything pre-washed can pose as a new problem for you. Zucchini should not be waxed, and know where your raisins come from. Read More

Gluten Free Teriyaki Sauce Recipe

I have to be honest and say, there are a lot of Gluten Free Teriyaki Sauces out there on the market. In fact, when I was at Costco last week, I found an organic gluten free sauce. I smiled, picked up the bottle, smiled even bigger, then sadly put the bottle down. You see, it was full shelf stabilizers and strange ingredients that can’t be pronounced, and well, I just couldn’t feed it to others. Needless to say, I got to inventing in the kitchen again, and the results were fantastic. The kids have been happy to have this in many recipes as of late.

For Vegan: Use maple syrup or agave instead of honey. Read More

Corn Free BBQ Sauce Recipe!!!

I love BBQ sauce, and it’s something that I have missed a lot since learning that I’m allergic to everything. This creation was simply stunning. I love it! It really tastes like part ketchup part BBQ sauce and of course, with a kick. I hope you like it as much as I do! If you’re making this for kids, I recommend leaving the Cayenne out of the mix. The kids tried it and said it was too spicy, but the adults felt it was just right.

Organic corn free pasta pesto and bread

St. Patrick’s Day part 2 of 3 – Pesto

So, here’s the idea for this year: start with the Avocado Rice for lunch, then, incorporate this awesome pesto into your dinner. I suspect that you will really enjoy this sauce.

You have to know, I have been dreaming of pesto for some time now, and decided to get brave. I searched quite a bit for a pesto recipe that I could modify, but everything was calling for cheese and nuts (as a dairy free option). I didn’t have nuts on hand, and in all honesty, didn’t like the sound of it. Needless to say, I had to make something up, and well, it was really good. This recipe has such a nice, natural creaminess to it, as if there were a nice cheese mixed in. It’s really exciting actually.

Allergy Status: Wheat/Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Egg Free, Soy Free, Nut Free, Peanut Free, Yeast Free, Corn Free, Cane/Refined Sugar Free, Sesame Free, Legume Free, Nightshade Free, Low Histamine, Diabetic Friendly, Paleo, GAPs, Vegan, AIP Compatible

Lamb mushroom garlic pizza

Lamb, Garlic, and Onion Pizza with Homemade Crust

I’ve been experimenting with pizza a lot lately that can be made corn free. This time, I wanted to try to make a pizza crust all on my own. It wasn’t the best on the planet when you compare it to what’s commercially available, however, I felt it was a very solid attempt considering its free from status. Feel free to jazz it up a bit, or even experiment with yeast to add rise. For the crust, I found this basic crust recipe at http://easypizzacrusts.com/nypc.html I did make slight modifications…

For Paleo & GAPs: Use a legal flour blend. Read More

Organic Rice with Organic Red Lamb Dish

Red Lamb Rice Dish

When I made this, it was so good, as the low simmer really gets the flavors to sing. I tried to re-create this after making it a couple of days later, and it was just not the same. I was in a rush that day, and the simmer didn’t happen, and I was bummed. So this is your friend letting you know: You gotta let it simmer! This is a dish that would also work well in a slow cooker.

Allergy Status: Wheat/Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Egg Free, Soy Free, Nut Free, Peanut Free, Corn Free, Cane/Refined Sugar Free, Yeast Free, Diabetic Friendly, GAPs, Paleo, SCD
For GAPs, Paleo, Diabetic, and SCD: Serve over cauliflower rice.

Fun Tip: This makes a great topping for both pizza and pasta too. Read More
