It's hard to find sauces to cook my daughter's chicken with. She can't have tomato based sauces because of GERD and she can't tolerate soy sauce because food allergy testing showed a moderate reaction to it. There are so many great chicken recipes on here and the IBS cookbook that use soy sauce. Does anyone know of a substitution for it that I can use in theses recipes?

You might actually be able to find a soy sauce without any soy in it. Have a look at the ingredients of the soy sauces your grocery store has, maybe one of them won't have soy in it.

If she's sensitive to the wheat in soy sauce, you might try "BRAGG's seasoning" or tamari which are both wheat-free.

Can she have citrus flavours? Lemons and limes really perk up an entree. I love making sauces with vegetable purees, i.e. roasted red peppers. How about a mushroom-based sauce? Herbs and spices and be creatively and artfully employed for a sauce. I love playing around with pureed spinach to create sauces. I'm not sure how sensitive she would be to vinegars (there are so many varieties of vinegars) with GERDs. Rice vinegar is quite low acid. You can really funk up food with mustards, as well. Can you create a creamy white sauce with a safe non-dairy mock-milk? I know that there are recipes for them on the recipe board. I'm pretty sure that there are recipes for safe gravies as well. Does she tolerate berries? I love using pureed berries for savory dressings and BBQ sauces.

Kate, IBS-D.

How would you make a vegetable puree? I am not a creative cook and often don't have much time.

It's really simple to make a vegetable puree. It's basically cooking a vegetable and blending it either with a hand blender or a food processor. Different combinations of vegetables can be fun/interesting. Roasted vegetable sauces taste delicious. Adding herbs and spices enhances the flavours as well.

Also, on the recipe board there is a great mock tomato sauce recipe that doesn't involve tomatoes. Check it out.

Kate, IBB-D.
