Vegan Nightshade-Free, Tomato-Free

Help relieve arthritis by avoiding plants in the nightshade family! Free of: Tomatoes , Potatoes , Eggplant , Peppers (Of any kind), such as Bell Peppers, Red Peppers, Chile Peppers , Pimientos , Cayenne Pepper , Chili Powder , Paprika , and other spices made from peppers. Sweet potatoes and black pepper are NOT in the nightshade family so they are okay to eat. By the way, Tobacco is also in the nightshade family; yet another reason to avoid it! The nightshade-free diet has worked for one of my family members I'm so VERY happy to say!!! I wish we could have discovered this much sooner. She had knee pain since a child. Only now that she's in her mid-fifties have we found the reason and the cure for her. She is fine now that she avoids all nightshades for the last few years. Tomatoes seem to bother her more than potatoes. She occasionally eats small amounts of potatoes without suffering. We learned of it in Dr. Sherry A. Roger's book Pain Free In 6 Weeks and Sherry Rogers learned of it from Dr. Norman K. Childers and was cured of her symptoms. She is extremely sensitive to nightshades and cannot eat small amounts ever. According to Dr. Sherry A. Rogers in her "Pain-Free In 6 Weeks" book, about 70% of patients are relieved from arthritis pain by following a night-shade free diet. It may take a month to notice results since the nightshade alkaloids and such are stored in the body and take time to clear from the body. She also says that those with arthritis may want be helped by also eliminating beef, pork, lamb, wheat and milk. Dr. Sherry Rogers also has other books such as The Cure Is In The Kitchen, You Are What You Ate and Macro Mellow and many others. If you have any questions about this or have any recipes for me, please Z-mail me! Here's a link for more info: We have not tried any of these recipes yet. While tomato-free is probably more difficult because it is in so many foods, I think potato-free is more difficult since most people love and miss their mashed potatoes and french fries.

From This parsnip recipe is intended for introducing parsnips to those folks that have never tried them (or have been afraid to try them.) A very simple, no- fuss recipe that showcases the wonderful flavor of parsnips. As the site states: "When you begin with a vegetable rich in flavor like the parsnip, it's best to keep the preparation simple and allow its flavors to be fully appreciated". Use the best quality parsnips you can find, firm not limp but importantly parsnips that are small, as in the size of a small/medium sized carrot. (Too big and they're tough.)

Recipe #154043

A low carb substitute for mashed potatoes.

Recipe #150120

The perfect condiment for people allergic to those pesky tomatoes.

Recipe #173780

It is simple and easy. Can be varied to your liking quite easily.

Recipe #17252

Vegan "ricotta" cheese for Lasagna, Spanakopita, Etc.

Recipe #137657

10 Reviews |  By Hadice

This is great if you want to make a dairy-free lasagna. Firmness of tofu will determine texture of "ricotta".

Recipe #96935

I got this recipe from "Simple Vegetarian Pleasures" by Jeanne Lemlin. I LOVE asparagus and am always on the lookout for new ways to make it. This is such an easy and elegant way to serve it. The asparagus gets a slightly nutty flavor after roasting, which makes it even more yummy.

Recipe #50847

My adaptation of one in Vegetarian Planet by Didi Emmons. I like the colour and hearty flavour of this. It's a really satisfying substitute for meat in a burger. You may use canned beans which cuts down on production time.

Recipe #84509

Add your favorite vegetable as a topping. I like to use tomatoes and onions.

Recipe #101011

Found this somewhere on the 'net but can't figure out where, so someone else deserves the credit for it but I'm not sure who. Omnivores in my life love this stuff too, so it's a good alternative to dairy for more than just vegans.

Recipe #72527

This is truly the perfect hummus, in my humble opinion. Roasting the garlic brings out its nutty and sweet flavor and cuts down on the sharpness. It's well worth the time! Try it, I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Recipe #202343

From Vegan with a Vengeance by Isa Chandra Moskowitz. I just received this gem of a cookbook for Christmas. We made this puree as a stuffing for lasagna last night and it was really good. Used whole wheat pasta, the puree, tomato sauce, spinach and mushrooms. Yum, yum, yum. Thought I'd share this recipe with you all. It takes the place of ricotta cheese in any type of pizza or pasta recipe. And it rocks! We left out the parsley because I forgot to buy it, and it was still a nice green color. Enjoy.

Recipe #202473

This is a fast & economical dish. It is very good. Even when my children & grandchildren were small, they all loved it!! It's an Italian dish that has been around for a very long time.

I'm posting this in honor of one of my best friends mom's who first served this to me during high second Jewish mother who always thought I should eat more. She used the Moosewood cookbook for many a fine dinner. Thanks Eileen!

Thickened with a mix of cooked oats and vegies, this soup has all the flavor of the original with a fraction of the fat stuff. Low in cholestorol too!

Recipe #24701

I got this recipe from a local grocery store. It is very simple, and lends itself to many variations and additions. The peanut sauce is nice as-is, but I added some chili-garlic sauce to it to give it some heat. I like my tofu very firm and crisp, so I drained it very very well before putting this together.

Recipe #116029

I fell in love with avocado rolls from a near-by Japanese take away, but I wanted to be able to make them at home to be sure of the ingredients used so my whole family (with allergies) could enjoy them also. I was, at first, apprehensive as they looked a little complicated and many recipes I found were actually very complex. However, it only took me two rolls before I got the hang of them. They really aren't difficult at all !!! I'm not really sure if my method is 100% correct, but it works for me. This recipe makes a mix of avocado and vegetable rolls - how many of each is up to you. You'll need a bamboo mat to help with the rolling.

Very quick and easy -- since I've lived in Japan I make this almost daily.

Recipe #178493

I learned how to make sushi from These are my favorite fillings but the possibilites are endless.

Sushi can be very addicting, and once you get the hang of it, surprisingly easy to make!
