I’ve been working on a list of candida-friendly recipes, all of which are forum-diet-friendly. I’ve been posting some here and there, but would like to share my list. It should be fairly easy to google a recipe on these, modifying as needed. If you would like a specific recipe though, just ask. Maybe others can add onto this as well and we could make some kind of online recipe book?
North Italian Polenta (substituting polenta for oat bran/buckwheat groats)
Paella (follow recipe, substituting rice for buckwheat groats. Use my posted tomato substitute in place of tomatoes)
Flax-buckwheat “flaffel” with cucumber-dill yogurt sauce
Thai Sriracha cream sauce (apple cider vinegar, garlic, cilantro, salt, stevia, cayenne, milk (or coconut milk) kefir
Veggie burgers (1/2 chopped, 1/2 pureed) sauteed spinach, roasted garlic, hemp seeds, roasted rutabaga, candida-safe grains)
Rutabaga garlic-chili fries
Sushi – substitute rice with cooked, chilled buckwheat groats. Serve with wasabi/mustard “mayonnaise” (make with milk/coconut milk kefir)
Cooked asparagus with mock hollandaise (blend olive oil/lemon juice/milk (or coconut milk) kefir and garlic powder)
Simple salad dressing – 1 part acid (lemon/lime juice or apple cider vinegar) + 3-4 parts oil, 1 tbsp herbs, salt/pepper
Pakoras (instead of chickpea flour, use buckwheat flour/oat bran/hemp seeds). Cauliflower works especially well in these! Serve with onion chutney (I posted this recipe earlier)
Chalupas with guacamole & romaine & “sour cream” (milk/coconut milk kefir + lemon juice + garlic powder/salt/pepper)
Purple/yellow cole slaw made with vegan caesar dressing (milk/coconut milk kefir, garlic, additive-free olive or capers, lemon juice, salt)
Antipasti salad (roast additive-free artichoke hearts and garlic, combine with additive-free olive. Serve by itself, with soba noodles, with greens etc)
Candida-safe garlic naan (look up a naan recipe, use buckwheat flour + some baking soda in place of the flour recipe recommends)
Candida-safe “potato” naan (look up a naan recipe, use buckwheat flour + baking soda, substitute rutabaga) top with chopped parsley, olive oil, salt/pepper
Okonomiyaki (kind of a Japanese pizza/pancake hybrid). Look up a recipe, use candida-safe veggies (bok choy and cabbage work very well). In place of recipe’s recommended flour, use buckwheat/oatbran combination. Be prepared to cook a long time. Top with wasabi “mayonnaise”
Herbed “butter” (green onion, coconut flour, coconut oil, olive oil, garlic, lime juice, salt, pepper)
Barbecue-flavored kale chips. Google a barbecue rub recipe, toss with chopped kale and oil. Roast 350 7-10 mins
Adventurous deviled eggs. Follow a basic deviled eggs recipe. In place of mayonnaise, blend 1pt acid + 3 parts oil + lemon juice. Combine with egg yolks. This is your base. Some options to try are:
Thai chile deviled eggs (stevia, chile flakes, coconut aminos, cilantro, ginger (some Thai curry pastes are candida-safe too)
Wasabi deviled eggs (if wasabi powder is candida-safe (anyone know?) use this. If not, use mustard powder. And a little lime juice. And ginger.
Curried deviled eggs – add curry powder – Penzey’s is the best I’ve ever tried. Add stevia, optionally fresh garlic & ginger
Chai tea (I posted a website with tons of recipes. You can make it extra strong and froth some milk for a chai latte!)
Baba Ghanouj (use hemp seeds instead of tahini), and serve with “pita” chips (buckwheat tortillas cooked in a skillet (make buckwheat pancakes, them cook them in an oven 150/175f for 45-60 mins)
Tabouleh (follow any recipe). Increase parsley, omit bulghur wheat and substitute roasted buckwheat groats, cooked & chilled). Adding cumin will make a fun variation.
Stuffed zucchini (olives, artichoke, basil, hemp seeds & garlic)
Stuffed roasted bell peppers (onion, garlic, cooked buckwheat groats, olives, oregano, tomato substitute (I posted the recipe earlier), lots of cumin
Tuscan-inspired garlic “potato” balls – find an Italian potato ball recipe, substituting rutabaga. Try buckwheat flour/hemp seeds for breadcrumbs).
Chicken-less dumpling soup – soup with lots of celery/onion/garlic, some turmeric. I’ve not tried to make the dumplings yet, but some combination of buckwheat flour/baking soda/flax meal would probably work out well. Another option is just use eggs (like in egg drop soup)
Hot & sour soup (use stevia in place of sugar, use apple cider vinegar in place of recommended acid. Optionally whisk in eggs.
Curried rutabaga vichyssoise – I googled a good-looking curried vichyssoise, simply substitute rutabaga
Gazpacho (posted recipe as vampire-killer gazpacho)
Zucchini-eggplant-arugular roll-ups with rosemary-sage oil (look up eggplant parmesan wraps, add zucchini arugula. Add either tomato substitute, or blend olive oil with italian herbs)
Asian-inspired jicama slaw (jicama is not on the forum diet, but others have mentioned that it can be tested in small amounts, gradually, later in the treatment). grated jicama, sesame oil, ginger, cilantro, garlic)
Waldorf salad made with jicama, plain yogurt/kefir, stevia, hemp seeds
Fried “rice” – use buckwheat groats. Bean sprouts, green onions, garlic, ginger, eggs, green beans
Curried broccoli/caluiflower stew
Soba noodle salad with braised bok choy, asparagus, spinach and sweet ginger-garlic dressing, chile flakes
Lettuce wraps with julienned snow peas, cabbage, asparagus, bean sprouts. Ginger-sesame dressing.
Stuffed grape leaves (anyone know if additive-free grape leaves are candida-safe? If so, use them. If not, substitute blanched cabbage). Follow a stuffed grape leaf recipe- usually includes olive oil/lemon juice/rice (substitute cooked buckwheat groats)/dill/mint etc)
Olive tapenade with rosemary-sage crackers
Yakisoba (Japanese noodle dish, use 100% buckwheat soba). You could make Yakisoba-pan by serving with candida-safe bread (shape it into a hotdog bun to make it more authentic!)
Thai-style grilled radishes (recipe posted earlier)
Curried mashed rutabaga with onion-chutney “gravy” (puree the onion chutney recipe I posted earlier)
Vegan mini key lime pies. Someone posted a recipe for key lime pudding earlier. Make a crust of hemp seeds/hemp protein powder/buckwheat flour, line in a cupcake pan, bake, chill, top with key lime pudding.
Grilled veggie fajitas (recipe posted earlier)
Mexican rice (bell peppers, jalapenos, buckwheat groats, lots of chile powder, oregano, oliver oil, lime juice)
Rutabaga chips with garlic-mustard aioli (flavored mayonnaise. Blend 1 part lemon juice with 3-4 parts oil. Combine garlic, mustard powder, salt/pepper)

While not nearly as extensive/creative as yours I have some recipes I have been jotting down. If you put something together I would be glad to contribute some recipes. IE Carne asada rutabaga fries (with fixins’), sliced roast beef, mashed cauliflower and cabbage, etc,.June 16, 2013 at 6:07 am #106329

Yippy! Thank you so much! I’m excited to see such a big list of recipes that I can try.June 17, 2013 at 9:36 am #106367

Thanks for all the suggestions! I love to create new recipes all the time, too. I just haven’t time to post things lately. If I get some more of my recipes tweaked, I’ll try to post a few more. (I do feel bad sometimes because I make up stuff for my partner, stuff I can’t eat, so it takes extra work for his food and my food.)
A few of mine people might not eat though, I do a few things that are different in baking in some recipes, but I try to watch too much fiber, etc. due to my gastroparesis and no colon issue, too. Like I use brown rice flour in some things, but I rarely eat rice, so I feel that I am not doing any harm sometimes. Mainly I have been trying to stick to pureed veggies, or the easier veggies to digest raw on me, cucumbers, celery, radishes. Then, eat a little homemade granola I made for some crunch sometimes. Lately, I have been trying to watch carb intake because I feel that I need to get this fungal population down, so I can build up to other supplements the nd wants to get me on later in my treatment, and start feeling really good, so I can introduce more foods again, etc. what do other people do to watch their carb intake if population is real bad at first?
It is nice to see someone who has a states in a plan for me. The last nd was great, but I just needed more advice. Raster’s post on follow this plan, or somewhat similar to this forum’s plan was great because everyone is different, and if you aren’t seeing results, yes, it cost money (starting to worry about that), but in the long run, everyone needs their own plan sometimes. Raster, if your reading this, thanks again for everything you have done to try and help me!!!!June 17, 2013 at 8:57 pm #106384

Thanks for this list Brett. There are some excellent ideas here. The three things I love and miss the most are falafel, stuffed grape leaves and veggies burgers. I should be able to alter my existing veggie burger and stuffed grape leaves recipes with your suggestions! If you have an established falafel recipe, I’d really love it.
Just a note, snow peas are high in sugar. You may want to avoid them until later stages of the diet.June 18, 2013 at 2:06 am #106395
Thanks Barnmouse, I meant to type green beans. Maybe snowpeas just sounded good when I was typing : )
Let me make the flaffel again and write down exact amounts. I used Alex’s recipe for crackers, quadrupled it, and added a lot of cumin/corriander/garlic/cayenne. Poured the batter into a greased (olive oil) cupcake pan. I may’ve added hemp powder. I’m with you, I really miss stuffed grape leaves! And Turkish coffee 🙂

Brett, I think I might be in love with you.
I want all of them. And I have a bunch to contribute, but I’m basically not home until August to think about it.
My boyfriend made me a giant pizza from your recipe as my going away last week though <3
OKONOMIYAKI! That’s my favorite food ever. What do you do for the brown sauce and for the Kewpie though? I used to put that nasty/amazing crap on basically everything (it’s SO GOOD on pizza :p)July 10, 2013 at 1:17 am #107462

Thanks so much for posting this list of recipes. There are some terrific recipe ideas here. I have been meaning to make candida diet friendly falafel so thanks for the inspiration. I can’t wait to try some of these.

Haha thanks Alex : ) I’m glad you like the pizza so much! 🙂
