The Pickiest Eater

My husband is British. And I mean, his mother was evacuated as a child during the World Wars, British. Which means his diet is extremely plain, and almost completely dragged out of those old World War recipe pamphlets that helped people cope with little supplies.
No pepper, salt, or anything relatively "spicy." That I understand, it upsets his stomach. Garlic and onion are repulsive for the same reasons. He hates any sort of bean besides Heinz Beans. He eats chicken, pork or beef, with a side of either peas(Petite, birds eye), beans(heinz) or potatoes (mashed/boiled/roasted). Buttered bread as well (You should see him pick out bread, lol!).
I don't have a problem with it honestly, but I'd love to surprise him with some creativity for the upcoming holidays.

So does anyone have any suggestions? Personally I am EXTREMELY adventurous when it comes to food (I will eat literally anything), so I'm kind of at a loss when I'm asked to dumb it down. He loves cheese (Mild/sharp cheddar… only) So I was thinking something like poutine, but he's put off by some textures as well…

Any ideas?
