Recently I’ve been experimenting with some pantry staples in the effort to come up with dishes that don’t bother sensitive Baby Yum’s allergic tummy. I think other Mom’s with babies that have this issue with protein in their milk and newly diagnosed Celiacs with multiple allergies may find this kind of recipe useful. It uses few ingredients, most which are commonly available in any grocery store. One reader found my notes for this recipe in my recipe files and said “Hey! Where are the directions?” One thing you may not know is that before I blog a recipe, I usually take notes for it and save it in my recipes to complete later- and this is one such recipe. But, I couldn’t resist posting it for you all when it had garnered such interest- before it even had a pretty picture to accompany it! Hope you all enjoy. This is a good recipe for those on elimination allergy diets as well..
Allergen-free shepard Pie recipe
2 large potatoes
dried herb mix
olive oil to taste
1 small onion, diced
Preheat oven to 375.
Bake potatoes (or microwave until done) and put through a ricer, drizzling generously with olive oil and seasoning to taste.
Heat olive oil in a non-stick fry pan or cast iron skillet. Add diced onion and as it turns translucent, add your kidney beans and carrot. Eventually add cubed (peeled) baked spaghetti squash and chard and saute until chard softens. Make a space in the center of the pan and add olive oil. Sprinkle with brown rice flour and let toast slightly before mixing into the rest of the dish. season and add water or vegetable broth in enough quantity to make a sauce. It will thicken slightly more later upon baking…
Take a nice baking dish and fill with your vegetable mixture. Top with olive oil mashed potatoes and add any additional seasonings if you like.
Bake in 375 oven for 30 minutes or until top gets nicely tinged with golden brown bits. Enjoy!
*Sorry to those who are allergic to potato… it isn’t one of the major eight, though, and happens to be an ingredient that agrees with my (and baby yum’s) tummy.
