Dinner party dish without onions

highlyunlikely | Nov 3, 201903:00 AM     7

I am hosting a birthday dinner for a friend who hates onions and their prodigy (leeks, scallions, shallots).

I would have liked to stick to comfort foods like braised short ribs or beef bourguignon, but my go-to recipes are chock full of onions. I suppose I could just leave out the onions - but I would also like to branch out and try a new recipe, as long as it’s been given the seal of approval from CH’ers, and has a bit of a wow factor.

The dinner will be six people, and I am looking for something seasonal ie. cold weather food. One of the guests does not eat seafood or fish. Will also need some appetizers / finger food ideas.

Thanks in advance!
