    Condiments or sauce?

    Advertisement :
    Does anyone know of any IC friendly that has not caused them a flare up condiment or sauce for meats? Not being able to have ketchup or mustard on a burger is frustrating and need a substitute please

    I sometimes put butter on a bun and grill it (in a skillet or in summer on the barbecue) --- that makes it crisp. I sometimes add some coarsely ground salt or even something like blueberry jam --- I know it sounds strange, but I actually like it.

    Have you checked the ICN Shop? for US & Canada for all others

    There are no commercial condiments that I know of that don't contain an acidic ingredient (i.e., vinegar, lemon juice). I got used to using seasonings that I knew I could tolerate instead.

    I know-the IC diet is pretty darned bland & suffers from a huge lack of umami! I bought some gourmet type basil flavored oil that is ok,sautéed mushrooms have a rich flavor,there's always my hero feta cheese -if you can tolerated it,oven roasted garlic,avocado and if worse comes to worse,I'll ask a restaurant to put lots of extra lettuce or greens on a sandwich so if it is bland,at least it has some crunchy texture.

    I make my own mayo! egg, olive oil, herbs and salt. I use a dash of lemon juice which I can tolerate but the recipe says apple cider vinegar. But you don't need either if you're using straight away. I have a thermomix which butterflies and whips to perfection. Add garlic if you want an aioli, I don't use it but if your bladder can handle it YUM

    I also use my own apple and pear sauce. cook blend and heat to reduce. Yummy on all meats with a touch of sweetness.
