I'd say unless the recipe I got was from a site about Interstitial Cystitis, it has to be altered to not flare me after consuming. Usually, that means substituting one ingredient for another, but not always. Sometimes, the only thing I do is eliminate the offending ingredient.
Here are some ingredients I axe to make an recipe IC friendly that hasn't hurt how it tasted (at least in my opinion.)
I've always found this to be strong and most places I've seen it, not a lot is used in a recipe. It's something I've cut many times. Hubby has added it to his plate and has said there is a difference in taste, but both ways are good and he often forgets to add it to his.
There's been a few recipes I've had that included vinegars that I've tried without. They were recipes I found after my diagnosis, and I wasn't able to eat it with all the ingredients. But they still taste fine even after omitting the vinegar. I'd say if a recipe calls for vinegar, give it a shot still and leave it out. You might not even really notice.
What ingredients have you cut out and not replaced? Did it work out in your favor?
