Onion-free vegan cooking

Hi, I'm allergic to onions...what I'm looking for is a low-fat vegan onion-free cookbook..good luck..right...
As a second option..any suggestions for replacing onions in recipes? The crazy thing is..I absolutely love garlic..go figure.

Buddhist vegetarian cookbooks should include vegan onion-free recipes. Mahayana Buddhist monks and nuns are either vegan or lacto-vegetarian, and they also avoid onions, garlic, chives, green onions, and leeks.

Blissful Bites doesn't have either onions or garlic in their recipes. On the other hand, what a bummer of an allergy to have.

Anytime I think I'm perfect, I remember that my cousin lives on an island, and I've never walked over to visit her.

I googled Blissful Bites and the site makes cakes and pastries..you'd be pretty hard pressed to find those items with onions anywhere...Is there another Blissful Bites?

Just omit them when a recipe asks to use them? I don't think onions are something you need to replace.

Here's a link to the cookbook Blissful Bites. Not sure if the website and the cookbook are from the same person. https://www.amazon.com/Blissful-Bite.../dp/1941631177

Right. Or maybe replace the onion with something else, maybe celery or even water chestnut? Something with a little crunch? Recipes are not legally binding.

If I want something that takes onions and I don't have any I just make it without.
There are certainly enough other veggies to choose from, no problem
I'm like that with just about any veggie except carrots and celery. I wouldn't make a noodle soup without those
