Substitute for curry powder, plus a lot of discussion on nightshades w/ some links:
[QUOTE]Dr. G's Nightshade-Free Curry Powder:
Equal parts of turmeric powder, ground coriander seed, and ground cumin.
Combine in an air-tight jar and shake to mix. Other addition options (add less of these!) include mustard powder, ginger powder, garlic powder, and fresh ground black pepper.
[/QUOTE] Sounds like a lot of turmeric to me...
I'm on the search for nightshade (and dairy) free curries, along with any other Indian and Thai recipes (any recs appreciated!!)
Nightshade and SUGAR* free ketchup recipe (there is a pasta sauce recipe at the bottom as well ;)): [url]http://www.craigsams.com/pages/nomato.html[/url]
[QUOTE]Nomato Ketchup recipe
435g Carrot puree (boil carrots and puree very fine)
30g lemon juice
200g Apple conc 70° (or 130g sugar and an extra 50ml water)
20 g Beetroot juice (or to get the shade of red you're after)
7g onion powder (optional)
2g Ketchup spice
KETCHUP SPICE MIX
17g garlic powder
5g kelp powder (optional)
4g ground nutmeg
3g white pepper
3g clove powder
2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp white pepper
1/2 tsp clove powder
For Baked Beans: Use precooked tinned haricot beans (from any health food store) and add ready made ketchup. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes at 150°
For Pasta Sauce: Take the basic mix, without the ketchup spice and onion powder. Saute onions and garlic and vegetables of your choice and cover in the basic puree mixture and add herbs and seasoning to taste
A vegetarian bouillon powder (Marigold brand or Kallo) will enhance the flavour[/QUOTE]
Will share when/if I try it out! :)
ETA: Just realized the 'apple concentrate' is in there--so its not sugar free...May still be a good base for ketchup or other sauce though even w/out the sugar...

Here is a sloppy joe recipe from the forums that might be easily made nightshade free.
From here: [url]http://www.marksdailyapple.com/forum/showthread.php?16729-Primal-Sloppy-Joe-s&p=238628#post238628[/url]
SLOPPY JOE STUFFED PEPPERS
1 pound ground beef
1 ounce onion, chopped, about 2 tablespoons
1 stalk celery, chopped
1 carrot, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
***1/2 cup tomato sauce (I used 1/2 cup tomato paste plus 1/4+ cup water--puree sauteed onions, carrots, garlic, and celery w/ this--texture issues ds)
1 1/2 teaspoons white vinegar
1 1/2 teaspoons coconut aminos
1/2 teaspoon mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
***I'm thinking to use a cooked, mashed sweet potato blended w/ a little broth to replace the tomato sauce, maybe with a little lemon juice added for acidity. I'll share if I make this--thinking to do it with ground venison (which I got for free from my sister-in-law and her hunting husband--YAY!) tonight.
[QUOTE=Bushrat;288098]Have you found a way to replace chilli? And what sort of spices give that 'hot' affect to food but aren't nightshades?[/QUOTE]
Mustards and wasabi, horsersdish.
FairyRae - thanks for all the great links and recipes! I have been having some twinges of pain in my foot and knees this week and reading some of these may have helped me identify a few places I could still tighten up my diet.
Have you tried any of the recipes yet?
It was a sad day when my nightshade challenges left no doubt that I can't tolerate any of them...migraine headache for 3 days plus a violent return to knee pain. Argh. However...I've learned to love whole spices such as mustard seeds, coriander and cumin and I use a lot of rosemary and thyme. If you react to nightshades after taking them out of your diet, you may want to challenge egg whites as well. I keep trying to add them back in thinking it might have been something else. Nope.
Ginger, fresh or powdered will also provide a nice zip!
