Help me come up with new recipes! My partner has a VERY restricted diet... he has IBS and Migranes...It will be easier for me to tell you what he CAN eat, so here we go: Cauliflower, Carrots, broccoli, Swede, sour cream, butter and oils, garlic, stocks, mushrooms, pasta, rice, barley, pastry, tomatoes, corn, sweet potato, and courgette/zucchini and most meat- plus salmon and chicken.... and I can use a lot of herbs (but no paprika, chili or anything hot)...

I've been good making some of my own recipes (in fact he thinks I am a genius since I've managed to get some really varied tastes into our diet) but am turning to the hive mind for more. Here is what I have made so far:
Lasange with mashed cauliflower as cheese
Chicken pie using stock and cream- pastry on top
Shepards pie with cauliflower as potato
Pizza using cauliflower as cheese
Pork casserole (uk style)
Sweet potato curry with garam masala instead of curry
Chicken succotash with barley, carrots and corn
Sauteed carrots with dill
Chicken noodle soup
lamb wellington (minus the good stuff but it still tasted good)
various meat and 2 veg meals...
My mashed swede always tastes a little weird though.
Also, I think chicken and dumplings would be great but last time I tried my dumplings were mush.
It would also be great to get a fish pie idea... I'm afraid to try since he is dubious about wine in sauces and doesn't eat shellfish.
Here is some of what he CAN'T eat: onions, onion powder, onion extract, any potato ANYTHING, paprika, celeriac, celery, leek, peas, spices, ginger, vinegar, preservatives and colourings.... and no cheese.
I use a ton of: sage, dill, garlic, basil, mixed italian herbs
So there you go! Ideas!?
