I have a friend who suffers from severe allergy to garlic. I do read labels, and try at all times to avoid anything with garlic, but I have many recipes which call for garlic. Can anyone suggest a substitute so that I can safely prepare these items without risk to my friend?
I don't like onions very much so I often use extra garlic instead of onions in a recipe, I wonder if it could work the other way also? Maybe add a little (extra) onion or some shallots?
I am allergic to both onion and garlic (paprika and mustard too) I typically will use red pepper flakes for a spicier taste or use parsley or cilantro for a brighter taste. Lemon is also used often.
I find red onions much easier to digest.
