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. So, without further ado, here’s the chefmarinie take on Ottolenghi’s meatballs – with my own flavour and interpretation!
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.
This dish serves 4 hearty portions. And all you need is, 200g gluten free macaroni 500ml boiling water 1 tbsp olive oil 25g fresh chives, chopped 200g wafer thin ham, chopped into small pieces 300ml oat milk 6 tbsp gluten free plain flour 70g cheddar cheese, chopped 40g Red Leicester cheese, chopped Salt pepper 2Continue reading “Low FODMAP macaroni cheese”
What better way to use up leftover veggies than in a simply delicious risotto, perfect for mid-week meals? The shiitake mushrooms are completely optional if you’re fine with them in your FODMAP diet; they add a miso-tasting kick and meaty texture to an otherwise mild (heat-wise) and soft risotto.
The flavour of this curry is just to die for. And I don’t say that lightly. I was up last Saturday night just thinking about it! I fancied a warming dish that would heat up my belly as much as my tastebuds, and this dish just did. If you are too, you’ve come to the right place!
