Low FODMAP meatballs and celeriac
I can’t take full credit for this recipe because, like so many of my adapted recipes, this one’s inspired by Ottolenghi. Making his food accessible to my low FODMAP diet has formed such a part of my curiosity for and creativity with food.

Yemista – or ‘stuffed peppers’
I have fond memories of this dish because it reminds me so much of my childhood and the times my grandmother used to make it for me and my family. It always went down a treat! So, I tried recreating this traditional Greek/ Mediterranean classic, with my own sort of twist. I used leeks to make it low FODMAP, and some extra spices (such as cinnamon) to add character to the tomatoey mince. It’s a full of flavour and makes for such a hearty meal.

Although, the orange zest and juice helps to cut through the sweetness, so it’s not saccharine.
