Breakfast recipes for citric allergy help please

Hi everyone,

New to the group :)

I really want to try heuvos rancheros as a healthy-ish cooked breakfast, but I have a mild citric allergy, so can't have a lot of tomato. Does anyone any ideas for how to make it (or something similar) without or with only a bit of tomato? Any other ideas for healthy cooked breakfasts that aren't full of tomatoes and aren't sweet?

Recipes are only a guide. If you can't have or have only a small amount of tomato, then that is what you put on your food.

It is only when you are baking from a recipe that you need to follow the recipe. Baking is a science. Cooking is a trial by error.

Welcome to DC. This is a fun place to be. Lots of information, lots of answers to questions. Stick around we enjoy having you here.

Is it only tomato you react too?
Heuvos rancheros is tomato based dish, so that is no go.

Welcome to DC! Do a search for Mexican breakfast eggs. Tons of ideas, many not tomato based. Can you have chile verde?

Eggs Benedict, while not Mexican, is really good.

Hi and welcome to Discuss Cooking

You can make a salsa with a mix of roasted and fresh bell peppers in different colors, along with onions, garlic, a jalapeño and cilantro. Add as much tomato as you can manage.

A couple other options are home fried potatoes with onions and peppers and a couple scrambled or fried eggs, or an omelet stuffed with a mixture of sautéed veggies and cheese.

When you say "cooked breakfast," what ingredients do you want to use? That would help us guide you to other options.

Thanks folks :)

I react to anything that is citrus (tomatoes, citrus fruits, grape fruit etc).

I generally try to cook tomato based dishes by replacing the tomato (eg for spag bol I replace the tomatoes with thick beef stock and a little tomato puree).

I can get most ingredients. I was just wondering if anybody had any ideas.

I gave you a couple of ideas I was asking which ingredients you want to use, not which you have available to you. Everyone has likes and dislikes, so if you give us a little more information about what you *like*, we can help you better.

hehum, I am citrus allergic, tomatoes are not citrus. But you can react to the peel of tomatoes, due to other allergens.

Anyway, I trust your doctor.

What can you eat with zero problems?

Most cooked breakfasts that come to my mind aren't full of tomatoes ...

What are you interested in?

Tomatoes are not citrus, but they do contain citric acid. So do pineapples, cherries and other fruits. It's just not as much as citrus fruits.
