Leeks, chives or onions would be closest.

I don't know if you are allergic to shallots or onion, but those might be good substitutions. Garlic is a pretty distinctive flavor.

Onions, chives and leeks are in the same family, and have a different taste....so, nut sure about those for you. But, I know there used to be a powered or minced garlic, that was not real.

If I remember right, it was actually a nut that was just garlic flavored. You might try looking for an artificial garlic or "garlic flavor" that is in a powered form.

Seasoning salt

I am allergic to garlic, onion, anything in those families. However, after I stopped using them in my cooking, I find that just a tiny pinch of garlic powder provides the taste I want. I buy a cheap one, I don't want it to be too strong or too high quality, as it would be more likely to produce a reaction. If you have violent reactions to garlic or its cousins, unfortunately I can't think of anything you could use, but if using a clove of garlic creates a mild reaction you may be able to get away with a tiny amount of garlic powder when it is really needed.

I used to use garlic in many dishes, but now I use it only when other herbs or spices aren't strong enough to carry the dish. Moderation is most important. Good luck.

Substitutions suggestions will probably vary but if you are truly allergic to garlic then this is some good info:

Lily family tree: Garlic belongs to the allium family, a group of closely related plants in the lily family. This group also includes onions, leeks, scallions and shallots, so you might want to keep track of symptoms after eating any of these foods.

I believe almost of all seasoned salt has some form of garlic.
If you cannot eat garlic due IBS then you may be able to eat some of the other items; onions, leeks, shallots, etc. and use them as a substitute.
Here are a couple of sites that give several good suggestions:

I get an allergic reaction to the store bought dried varieties of garlic (both granulated and powder). Seems my issue is with one of the chemicals they use in the processing to prevent caking. I don't have any problems using fresh garlic.
