Are Chick Peas, lentils a problem with PA?
We are supposed to go to a family get together at a restaurant that has a very varied menu for lunch. I have scanned their menu and their are no nuts listed (yeay!) but they use chick peas (for burgers) and have a lentil salad. I'm trying to determine if these foods usually cause a problem with airborne/cooking type reactions. The restaurant is small so I imagine the ventilation isn't great- anyone had any experiences with chick peas and lentils in a peanut allergic person- good or bad experiences? I plan on bringing DD's food- but was just worried from an inhalation/cooking standpoint. Thanks!
