Hummus dip substitute with no beans?

My mom is on a strict FODMAP diet because of IBS and she can't eat any kind of beans. Hummus is a big part of her daily diet and I'd love to make her a replacement. She also can't have onions, garlic, or gluten. Ideas?

Babaganoush. Made with eggplant. However tahini paste is on the 'no list'.
Is this a diet a doctor recommended? Like a real MD and not a Mountain Doctor, like Granny?

Another dip that's really wonderful is muhammara. It's made with red peppers, walnuts, bread crumbs (which I'm sure could be substituted with a GF version), and pomegranate molasses. Most recipes involve garlic, but you can take it out. I often eat it alongside hummus, and I think they would be good substitutes! Ottolenghi has a nice recipe.

What does she eat the hummus for? If spread, dip or mostly snack, various in addition to eggplant & pomegranate already mentioned, like artichoke spead, pesto, tzatziki (all custom nade w/o offending ingredients).
If for protein, consider egg salad, slow roasted meat as sandwiches or in gravy, fish spreads like those made from mackerel or whitefish.

Our gastroenterologist recommended The same diet. If she can tolerate dairy you can puree cottage cheese as a base for all kinds of flavors.

I have not made this recipe, but I've had good luck with every other recipe I've tried from this site.
