    Tomato and Potato Allergy

    Really missing tomato sauce and mashed potatoes. I'd love suggestions on substitutes, especially for tomato sauce. I've experimented with roasted red peppers but haven't been able to match the sweetness. Blended red peppers turn a bit bitter and spices and sugar haven't helped. Any suggestions?

    mashed cauliflower may work for you for the potatoes, but I have no idea what to use if you can't have tomatoes. My internet connection is coming and going tonight so I can't search those allergies but will try to tomorrow.

    I'd love to have something that gravy can go on. I've never tried parsnips or turnips. Maybe those? Do they cook like potatoes? Do they have distinctive flavors?

    JeanT, I admit I have never used them, I never was a big potato fan, so I don't miss them, but I have had lots of friends say you can't tell the difference. I have had weight loss surgery, I would rarely eat gravy, but I am sure there are people out there that might reply to this topic that have tried them.

    Are you allergic to all tomatoes or just red ones? My maternal grandfather was allergic to only red tomatoes, he could have yellow ones with no problem. I have also heard lots of people say they can have yellow but not red, if this be the case you can make sauce with yellow tomatoes, while in season, not sure you can can them though.

    Hi Jean wave.gif
    I Googled tomato allergies and substitutions to see what we could find to help you. Things that were mentioned to use are chutneys, beets, carrots with other vegetables you like blended to make a juice, broths, and if you are just wanting a thickener use a flour or corn starch slurry.

    Here is a website from the UK that sells a no tomato sauce. It does mention the ingredients so maybe you could put together something similar using the ingredients as a guide.
    Ally's No Tomato Sauce

    For the potato substitute the first thing that came to mind was mashed cauliflower or polenta. I think you could use gravy easily with either one of those too.

    Also found an article about using cauliflower, turnips, rutabagas, celaric, and Dixie Diner Mashers for potatoes.
