I've been a vegetarian for many years now, but I'm getting tired of my selection.  I do, however, have one HUGE problem - I'm allergic to Onions, Garlic, and Bananas. I don't like mushrooms very much, and I can't have milk or ice cream (but yogurt and cheese is ok).

All the recipies I find have onion or garlic, and so do all the pre-packaged box meals. 

Help?

Veggie Boards (www.veggieboards.com) is a good forum to get recipes, if you are not already a member. There are lots there from all of the members, and there is lots of other information as well.

I feel so SORRY for you!  I would DIE without my onions and garlic!

Here is a place to create your own recipe!  It is fun, but mine needed a little more seasonings than they suggested.

Have fun!

often garlic/ onions can just be left out of the recipe.
you could replace them with leek, if you wanted.

You can usually substitute things at will in cooking - it's not an exact science. Don't want onions? Leave 'em out. Don't like mushrooms - use zucchini or something you do like.

Instead of concentrating on things you can't have/don't want, concentrate on the things you can/do.

Most, if not all the time, onions and garlic are used as aromatics in recipes (ie make it taste and smell good).  You can easily substitute any other aromatic that you prefer - leeks, celery, and herbs come to mind.

Mushrooms are usually used in vegetarian recipes for something chewy and 'meaty'.  Try using substituting another hearty vegetable you like, or a wheat-gluten type of fake meat, or tofu.

Also, you should try looking for "Budhist Vegetarian" cookbooks and websites.  The budhist vegetarian diet cuts out onions, garlic, and a few other things.

Oh, and for the dairy stuff, try looking for "Zen Soy" brand soy pudding.  It is heavenly!

My ex boyfriend was also a vegetarian allergic to onions and garlic... it did make it super hard to make anything that wasn't pre packaged.  Just make like huge casseroles and freeze the portions and reheat them.  That's what he did.
