My daughter, Jazlyn, is anaphylactic to egg, dairy, peanuts, and tree nuts. When she was first diagnosed, I found it very difficult to find recipes and foods that didn't taste like "allergy" food. Over the last 15 years I have had a lot of fun developing and changing recipes so that they are safe for her. I love to share my recipes so that other families can realize how yummy "allergy" foods can taste. You don't have to sacrifice taste or your favorite foods, you just have to rethink how to make them. I made a promise to Jazzy that I would do my very best to find a way for her to eat any food she wants to try. So far I have been able to keep that promise. I hope your family enjoys these recipes as much as we do.

Egg Free, Dairy Free, Nut Free Sloppy Joes

I love Sloppy Joes, but I wanted a healthier version that still had a lot of flavor. The girls and I loved it, especially over cooked brown rice, pasta, or mashed potatoes.

Sloppy Joes

1-2 lbs ground turkey or ground beef
1 diced pepper
1 diced onion
15.5 oz can tomato sauce
14.5 oz can diced tomatoes
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tbsp onion powder
1 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp salt

Fry the meat, pepper, and onion in a skillet until done. Add the remaining ingredients then cook and stir until heated and thickened.
*  Freezes perfectly. I like to place a single serving of the frozen Sloppy Joes in a large microwave safe bowl with 1/2 cup brown rice and 3/4 cup water then microwave for 6 minutes or until the rice is done.
