Freezable, tasty soups or stews without onion, garlic or stewed tomatoes. Is this possible?

I've started making and freezing soup for workweek lunches. Love! Italian sausage and kale, spicy cabbage soup, chili, chicken taco soup, peanut chicken stew, all so tasty. My husband, however, doesn't get to share in the joy of all the soup ever, because good soups seem to require sauteed onion and garlic as a base and/or the addition of tomatoes in various forms.
The onions and garlic give him indigestion, and we're not sure what the problem is with the tomatoes--possibly the seeds?
I have so far made this carrot and lentil soup
which was yummy but not particularly hearty.
Can you please recommend to me your favourite soups and stews that do not require onions, garlic or tinned tomatoes? Slow cooker recipes are also welcome. I have all the necessary kitchen gadgets and a well-stocked spice cupboard.
