No tomatoes – now what?
What to do when you can’t eat tomatoes anymore! The whole no tomato thing is something I often hear people struggling with when they start out on a low histamine diet. Or for that matter something a lot of people profoundly miss. I know for sure it has been one of my bigger struggles, throughout these past few years. But the struggle has definitely also inspired me to come up with a bunch of alternatives for the more traditional tomato rich dishes like pastas and pizzas 😀 So in this post I have collected 8 of my Tomato Free Low Histamine Recipes for you guys.
While I’m currently fine with tomatoes now and then (especially the yellow cherry tomatoes), I still mainly cook without tomatoes. And since the whole tomato free thing is a real struggle for a lot of people I wanted to collect all of the recipes, with alternatives for the more traditional tomato rich dishes, which I have published so far 😀 I hope you’ll find some much needed tomato free inspiration \o/.
Nomato Sauce and Tomato free pasta dishes
It took me a while to perfect my histamine friendly version of the nomato sauce, but once a nailed it Pasta night was totally saved 😀 And after that my nomato sauce has been a stable resident in my freezer, for quick pasta dishes, pizza sauce and lasagna. Yes Lasagna!!! My family absolutely loved it when I was testing my Low Histamine Lasagna recipe with nomato sauce…. my oldest son even gave it a thumbs up and called it perfect! What more could a mother wish for ???
For pasta I also really like pesto and bell pepper sauce 😀 I also sometimes just fry up some veggies in a pan, add some pesto and bam you have a great pasta sauce 🙂
Tomato Free Low Histamine Pizza Recipes
My husband is really stuck on the idea of a pizza being a base with tomato sauce and a looooot of cheese. But with histamine intolerance this isn’t a great combo at all! So it is time to expand the idea of pizza, it can be so much more than tomato sauce and cheese. Just check out these three low histamine pizzas:
