Honestly just make boring ass white american food like baked breaded chicken breast, pork chops and apple sauce, meatloaf, sloppy joe, bacon mac and cheese.

Honestly OP you could've just googled "Boring ass food for neglected white children who grew up in a household where they received no education or discipline" and you might've found at least three of those. It's not hard to cook around onion and tomato and most people who're low-tier cooks use them as a crutch. Are they delicious? Yes. Are there lots of recipes that call for them? Absolutely. Would I use them if I could? You better believe it. But being pigeonholed to a point you can't cook anything that doesn't use both just proves that, not only are you not adaptable, but you're letting that picky cunt win. She probably just does it so people treat her differently which means it gets her attention.

>> No.17006861

While irritating, sure, it doesn't sound that bad. Part of being a good home cook is being flexible.
I also find that if I can hide certain ingredients someone doesn't like well enough, they'll never notice. For example, you could try cutting onions really small and cooking them down a bit more than you normally would, I bet she won't be able to tell they're there.

>> No.17006866

Usually I'll just reserve something before adding the ingredient I think they'll complain about. It usually tastes like shit but I don't care, you asked for a menu without <ingredient> so it's not in your portion. Enjoy how bad it is.

>sorry to hear bro, what even causes this? do you need some probiotics?
I think its some type of onion allergy. The thing is I don't have health insurance so i cant get an official diagnosis.

i take probiotics on the daily like yogurt and kefir but noticed it gets me slightly bloated so trying to make my own to see if that makes a difference.

>> No.17006904

The answer to catering to picky eaters is to just chop up the things that they find icky so finely that they can't visually detect them. It has never failed me and sometimes when they ask how I made the dish so tasty, I tell them that I used X ingredient in it to hilarious results.

OP, just stretch yourself to do something new.
Over the next two weeks pretend you don't like tomato or onions and go to work. Keeping the 4 food groups separate will help. Main meat, 2 veggies, vary the starch and bread, and salad/soup with it, and you've got this.
Pick a theme each night, german, mexican, southern, whatever, and don't do casseroles, soups, and things that have too much combined. They will suddenly remember they don't like mushrooms or somethign else.

I had a woman tell me that she was allergic to garlic after she had eaten a shitload of my lasagna that had a ton of garlic in it. I had no idea that she possessed that alleged allergy beforehand because she never told me about it. When I told her that I used a bunch of it in my sauce, she said that it only affected her if someone used a very, very large quantity of it. Keep in mind that I chop my garlic very fine when incorporating it into a tomato sauce. She never saw the garlic, by the way. I might be going out on a limb here but I think most allergies are made up by picky eaters.

They are two of the most commonly, if not the most commonly used ingredients on Earth.

..exactly.. so the gf should start eating onions and tomatoes

>> No.17007451

This. Onions and tomatoes are so used they take up over one-sixth of my local grocers space. There's an aisle for onions and tomatoes and they have pretty much every variety of each. A whole aisle for potatoes and squash. Then an aisle for fruit. And an aisle for everything else and herbs. Oh, and then there's free-floating bins of onions and tomatoes in the lanes too.

>> No.17007493

How common an ingredient is doesn't matter, if there's something you don't like then you are a picky eater and less than human

>> No.17007503

I think I should've also mentioned how "offensive" something tastes determines how picky of a person you are, which is why I went to chovies and clovies (I like them but they have an extremely strong flavor)
And where I'm going with this is that tomatoes and onions are both ubiquitous and mild tasting (when cooked) so someone who doesn't like them is an even pickier eater than someone who won't eat chovies

>> No.17007508

If someone has an actual allergy, I can understand that. However, if someone claims to have an allergy after the fact because they think something tastes icky when they were 12 years old, they deserve being fed that item. In most cases, "allergic eaters" are subject to fads like anti-gluten advertising or are trying to hide their picky eating.

I think it has more to do with us not making roasts as often as our anglo cousins, so we don't have gravy floating around as often, and I'm pretty sure serving mashed potatoes without gravy would give the average American an aneurysm. Hence whenever we do make a roast, we have mashed potatoes too

I prefer my mashed taters with skin on, made from red potatoes, with garlic and butter, no matter what they're being paired with. Of course, I don't make them unless I'm making something that that would pair well with, like steak or meatloaf.
