I have several friends who are allergic to edibles in the onion and garlic families, so I've begun collecting recipes for them. These recipes do not include those which use any seasoning mixes, salad dressing mixes, seasoned breadcrumbs, ketchup/catsup, soup mixes, or worchestershire sauce - all of which almost always contain onions/garlic.
Onion/garlic family: leeks, shallots, scallions, all types of onion and garlic.
While watching FoodTV, I saw a piece about Amy Ruth's restaurant in New York where the owner made fried chicken dipped in a honey cinnamon mixture. It looked so good I began searching on the web for a recipe which approximated it... and after much browsing of webpages I put together a recipe that I thought might taste something like it. I don't fry my chicken, so here's a baked version, tweaked to my own tastes.
These are a lot more interesting than plain roasted or jacket potatoes. They're perfect to serve with a roast and easy to do. As the potatoes cook the slices fan out so, as well as tasting great, they look pretty too!
This can be a great meatless meal or it will do nicely as a side dish to any meat. I recommend pearl barley (it is the most common varity) as it cooks up better in a crock pot without becoming gummy and sticky.
I'm posting this in honor of one of my best friends mom's who first served this to me during high school...my second Jewish mother who always thought I should eat more. She used the Moosewood cookbook for many a fine dinner. Thanks Eileen!
Remarkably similar in taste to real beef stew, but made with kidney beans for that no-cholesterol, no-fat goodness. I found this on boutell.com web-site. Very tasty stew. You may add tamari (soy sauce) for colour, and a few teaspoons nutritional yeast flakes. I did not count in the time to soak beans overnight. Times are approximate.
