  1. I have to avoid tomatoes. Do you have an alternative to suggest for this recipe. Thank you.

    • Sure. Cooking is fun when we can be flexible with ingredients. You can add peas, additional onions,cabbage chopped small and sauteed. I do suggest you add 1/4 cup of additional water or broth in step number 5 to compensate for the tomato water.
