Top 9 Allergy Friendly

I’m back with all the allergy friendly sauces, dips and recipes for our friends that have allergies to not only those allergens included in the top 9, but allergens outside those top 9 as well!

Free From Mustard, Onion and Garlic Too!

The top 9 allergens get a lot of attention due to U.S. label laws. Manufacturers awareness toward the top 9 shows in product recipes as well. Many individuals that have top 9 allergies also have allergies to ingredients outside the top 9! My son and husband are two of them.

My Son’s Allergies to Foods

My son has been anaphylactic to peanut and shellfish since he was a baby. In early 2022 he was additionally diagnosed at the age of 14 to 7 new allergies. He is now also allergic to: pecan, walnut, oat, garlic, sweet potato, watermelon and pear.

My Husband’s Allergies to Foods

My husband also started having reactions to foods in recent months. This year he was diagnosed with allergies to: pea mushroom, avocado, mustard, onion, and lima bean!

Onion and Garlic

It seems like the more we are reading labels for these new allergens, the more that we are finding the need for label law revitalization. As well as, that those pesky onions and garlic are in a ridiculous amount of foods.

Still Savory and Delicious

I was worried that we would lose savory flavor by not having those key ingredients that are seemingly vital to flavor so many things. Guess what?! You can still have the most amazing salsa, marinara, and other recipes even without onion and garlic! You won’t even miss them. We sure don’t!

Make a Batch in just 25 Minutes

This recipe is so simple you can whip it up the day before, in the morning, or even as part of your dinner routine. The sauce only takes about 25 minutes to make, and only a handful of that is hands on.

Just 6 Ingredients

I love to mix my whole vine ripened tomatoes, with equal amounts of Roma tomatoes to get a perfectly balanced blend of sweet and acid. Then just throw in some basil and oregano, along with salt and pepper, and you’re set!

Spaghetti Sauce, Pizza Sauce, or Mozzarella Stick Sauce

This sauce can be used interchangeably as a marinara for your spaghetti, homemade pizza or as a dip with your favorite allergy friendly mozzarella sticks!
