Sensitivity.

HELP!
I have just been told that I need to remove two of my favourite foods due to a new sensitivity. ONIONS and GARLIC. Just every recipe contains them especially as I love soups and casseroles. Has anyone got any ideas on what I can use instead for a similar flavour. (Leeks and Spring onions are also banned!)

Onions and garlic

Nothing I can suggest to replace the flavour, except lots of herbs, but there are lots of people in India who do not eat them. Try looking at those sites for some recipes.

There are lots of recipes which do not contain either; or they can be left out.

Sensitivity

I have the same problem, have had for years. Most guests really love my food. I have no problem with really posh nosh (Waterside Inn and so on)...but Jamie's is a nononononon. So tedious having to keep going back to Bray. There is life and gastronomy after onions :) Will share tips with you later but don't worry, your foodie world has not collapsed and if anything might get better. Think subtle.

Onion and Garlic replacement


I would use a lot more fresh and dried herbs, especially for soups and casseroles etc.

Mostly you can simply leave them out, I know it sounds alien, but you will soon adapt, there are quite a few members on here who for one reason or other do not cook with onions and/or garlic.

I know nothing about this sort of dietary problem, but was wondering if you would be able to use onion and garlic powder as a replacement?

Sensitivity, onion/garlic

Don't know anything about this sensitivity but could you use wild garlic and chives?

Onions and garlic

But they both belong to the same family.

onions and garlic replacement


i would also use celery, one stick per onion to start with until you get used to the flavour which i personally love. I add that to an awful lot of dishes now and it does add another dimension.


Also i would maybe suggest trying radish, chopped up finely, even grated if you have a microplane.

I agree with WC about chive and wild garlic, she would need to avoid everything from the allium family...but i do wonder about the powder?

Thanks

Thanks to all who responded to my question on onions and garlic, plus the whole Lily family. I will certainly try your suggestions and try to find out about the powders but I feel sure they will also be off the menu for the moment.
