Mustard alternatives

I'm allergic to mustard, in every form. And everything else that contains mustard oils such as anise, fennel, and capers.

I'm sure that you know how frequently mustard shows up in recipes. So, does anyone have suggestions for alternatives?

Is horseradish one of those mustard oil bearing vegis?

I would substitute with ground or fresh ginger for 'heat' if you can tolerate that.

It depends on the purpose of the mustard in the recipe. If it is consistency you are looking for or the taste. Tell us more what recipe it is and we might help you more with substitute.

Mustard can play roles other than flavor, but sticking to flavor substitutions, consider Balsamic vinegar. It has much of the bite and depth of mustard. Beat an egg yolk into it to simulate the creaminess. If it's mustard used prominently in something where it's spread and remains mustard, rather than being folly mixed in, try hummus with the above vinegar and a bit of wasabi. Wasabi and horseradish are commonly added to vinaigrette.

Nice one GLC! hadn't thought of that. What a good tip. I use balsamic a lot, often reduce it to a syrup for a super garnish- with- atitude. Also, Wasabi is so useful for lots of things. Hope this helps our friend.

I'm mostly trying to simulate the flavor in sauces and sausages.

Wasabi is Japanese horseradish and ground mustard. Which makes it poisonous to me.
