Here are some recipes that will work for Stage 4. I have not tried them all, but as we do I'll post reviews. I have done my best to make sure that everything works for this stage, however, I may have made mistakes. Let me know if you find any!
Some of the recipes come from the Reversing Food Allergies (RFA) class, but you can find similar recipes online. I have linked to alternatives when possible. Other recipes come from an ebook I purchased from Home, Health and Happiness (HHH) which gives you recipes and lists and such for the GAPS intro diet.
Please let me know if you have any recipes or ideas to contribute to this stage. Be sure to read the comments when looking at recipes - there are often great tips and ideas for variations.
Remember that all the recipes from Stages 1, 2 and 3 can still be used.

Shredded Beef Soup with Kimchi
Aioli (Garlic Mayonnaise)
Fermented Carrots and Daikon Radish
Fermented Cucumber Pickles
Stuffed Acorn Squash - there are many variations of this...just make sure you're only eating what's appropriate for the Stage you're on
Almond Flour Shortbread - use coconut oil or ghee if not eating butter yet
Italian Meatball Soup - use homemade bread crumbs, zucchini or spaghetti squash pasta - could use on Stage 1 if omit eggs and bread crumbs as binder
Butternut Squash Latkes - use GAPS legal fats for frying
Cauliflower Rice - use coconut oil, ghee or tallow for sautéing
You can now roast or grill your meats. Try not to eat the overly-browned or burnt bits.
You can also start to use dried herbs as well as fresh. You need to wait until Stage 5 for 'spices'. If you're making your own sausage you can use dried herbs (which will probably make it easier).
Begin to add cold-pressed olive oil to your meals. Start with a few drops per meal and increase until you have 1 to 2 tablespoons per meal. I'm thinking you can have mayonnaise now because you make it with olive oil.
Don't go crazy with the nut breads! Start slowly and gradually increase. There are many recipes out there for nut bread, GAPS bread, etc (see page 151 of the GAPS book for one). To start with it should be simple - nut flour, eggs, squash and some sort of natural fat. Save the 'spices' for Stage 5.
You should continue to eat fermented veggies and I've added recipes for a few that you might not have been eating in previous stages - who wants pickle juice in their soup??? But I sure want them in my egg salad!
