Friend dealing with Crohns

New to the site.  Not sure this is the right place to post this.  I need some help with vegetarian recipes.  Nothing that requires frying.  Nothing with garlic, onion, cabbage, broccoli, or beans (the gassy stuff) or dairy products of any kind (including dairy cheeses, goats cheese is good).  Low to no sugar and with no corn syrup fructose. Forgot to mention; Gluten free.  Not asking for much aye... 

The best would be for you and your friend to scroll through the recipes and look for things that look good and don't have the symptom triggers you list above.  If your friend is going through a period of active flaring of the disease he/she should stick with bland soft foods.  That's what I do when I'm going through an active flare period (over 20 year Crohn's sufferer myself).  I wouldn't necessarily count out all recipes with gassy foods like beans....if your friend is a new vegetarian their system will get used to them and they won't cause as much gas.  Good luck!
