Maybe onion, celery or leek.
Celery is a great idea. I will definitely try this. Unfortunately I cannot have onion or leek.

Shallots possibly
Great idea. I wonder if chives would work?
by Naomi
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.
Perhaps you could ask your dietitian about possible alternatives.

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.
by Naomi
I would always use onion as a substitute.
Oh, sorry, just saw your post that said you were allergic to onion as well. Maybe try fennel or ginger or some string flavoured herbs.
Ginger is a great idea - thanks!
by Naomi
Not a problem :)
I was thinking of ginger . . .

Maybe you could use garlic powder, or perhaps leeks, I'm, not really sure to tell you the truth.
Thanks Diana

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
Wow. That is fantastic information. Thank you
by Naomi
Asafoedia is a good flavour but oh my goodness....the stink !

IMHO there is no substitute for garlic.
I agree that nothing quite matches the flavour or aroma but I was hoping there was something!
by Naomi
Garlic chives have the same glavour, but onion is more the same consistency. I would use both if the intolerance allows.
Glavour= Flavour

Thanks very much. I think chives are low FODMAP as well!
by Naomi
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.
by annfi
Maybe garlic chives? They have a similar flavour but I don't know if that is due to the same chemical that gives garlic its flavour.
I have just found some growing in the garden. They smell amazing!
