I struggle with this as I am allergic to garlic (diagnosed) and on a low FODMAP diet which excludes onion. It drives me crazy as it smells so good. I cook separate meals for my family so they don't miss out. I use a lot of chilli and spices.
Thanks for your advice. I seen my dietician, invented some new recipes and have shared them with him so that he can give to others in the same situation. I am seeing him again this week so will ask him if he has additional ideas.
Asafoetida, used in Indian cooking. Google for more information but this link provides a good general advise https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/glossary/asafoetida
I last saw it at Metung Farmers Market in Victoria, Oz. sold by Tambo Gourmet Foods who have a website and do mail order. http://www.tambogourmetfoods.com/default.html
Sorry Naomi. After reading what you said earlier I don't think chives would work either. Galangal, ginger, chilli, lime/lemon zest and juice may alll add a bit of kick to your food. Hari Krishnas don't use onion or garlic so mabe try some of their recipes. Some of their food is DELISH.
