Definitely visit http://www.simplysugarandglutenfree.com/ for ideas to help. Tomatoes are fairly easy to avoid for the most part, but it does completely change the way you can cook. I know for us it would be extremely difficult to make that change as nearly everything we cook includes tomatoes in one way or another.
Stir-fry is an excellent suggestion - you pick & choose your veggies, and the sauce is usually soy sauce, oyster sauce, water.
I wish you the best - and if you do find great recipes you love, please share. Thanks =)

What other kinds of food do you like or does he like? I have several other recipes, mostly are for Indian food, and a lot are other foods.
If he is allergic to tomatoes, then pizzas, lasagnas, pastas with tomato sauce base is out of the question.

You could prepare this simple recipe, Fried rice.
Prepare rice as according to directions on box. Set aside,
in a frying pan, add some olive oil, chop an onion, dice it up, and add it to the pan, with some chopped bell peppers, then add 1/2 tsp garlic ginger paste, and fry for a few minutes until it's soft. As these are frying you can steam some other veggies, like broccoli, carrots, corn, green beans, anything else, like red kidney beans, or chick peas, or some cooked meat to it. After the steamed veggies are done, add it to the pan. Then add the cooked rice, and fry for a few minutes. Add salt, black pepper, red chili powder, tumeric to your own taste. Stir, then add some soy sauce.
If you have some other chinese sauce, like schewan sauce add about 2-4 Tbsp of that, and stir it. then enjoy that.


Another would be a chicken dish,

In a frying pan, add some olive oil., chop an onion, and bell peppers.
in a bowl, add some boneless cubed chicken, add some spices to it, according to your own taste, tumeric, salt, red chili powder, garlic ginger paste, and some tandoori powder. Let it sit for awhile, sometimes 30 mins is fine.
You can use a fork to poke holes in the chicken, as you let it marinate with the spices. You can also add some yogurt to this bowl, like 2 Tbsp and stir.

Then in the frying pan add the oil, and bell peppers and onions and fry for a few minutes. Then add the chicken, and fry on medium heat, until the chicken is cooked through.
Now you can decide what kind of sauce you want.

You can add water to this, and a bit more oil to make it that kind of sauce and gravy kind.

You can add more yogurt like 1 cup and let it be like that kind of sauce.

Or coconut milk, and when the oil rises to the top it's ready.

Also in the end adding freshly chopped cilantro to it, also helps a lot. Eating this with rice, the fried rice or plain rice, or even with pita bread is good.

i love allrecipes.com its even has a spot where you can search recipes based on the ingredients u do and don't want.. try hamburger gravy, you make mashed potatoes, fry a pound of ground beef with some onions, diced peppers, mushrooms, whatever you like, throw a little soya sauce in it or a boullion cube, and mix some flour or cornstarch in a separate container with ice cold water to thicken it, and then warm up some cream corn or just some frozen corn with some margarine, don't add any salt anywhere cause the gravy has enough and if you need more u can add it to your plate, and u put mashed potatoes then the corn, and then the hamburger gravy mixture on top... its like a no bake shepherds pie, really yummy

you can always make a pasta sauce without tomatoes/cream. My favourite is actually inspired by East Side Mario's Angel Hair Primavera. Basically it's veggies sauteed in a frying pan with olive oil, butter, roasted pepper, and some spices for taste!

You could also do a creamy sauce with no cream... I know this sounds weird, but use eggs and some bacon (diced up), when your pasta is cooked add it to the mixed egg and bacon and some parmesan cheese (the pasta will cook the eggs so you can eat them)

just curious, is it the tomatoes or just the seeds ? I have a relative with diverticulosis/diverticulitis and they cannot have certain foods because of the seeds. Tomatoes is one of the foods - but, if they eat the canned, diced version, which has no seeds, they can enjoy the tomatoes.
Just a suggestion - look into it. As for skipping tomatoes, can you use tomato sauce ? Perhaps adding a touch of honey or sugar to kill some of the natural acid ? Also, rather than cream, perhaps just cooking with regular milk (if that doesn't cause stomach upset) or finding a lacto-free version ? We prefer rice milk to soy milk - too many questionable qualities with soy, so we just avoid it.
There's a web site I found, Simply Sugar & Gluten Free - they also have dairy free recipes on there. I hope that's helpful - best wishes.
