What better way to celebrate the first day of spring other than with a gorgeous gluten free lemon and poppyseed loaf. This was inspired by ottolenghi but adapted to be low fodmap.
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!

Who said Ottolenghi’s cherry and aubergine (previously-bulgar-wheat-but-now-quinoa) recipe can’t be made FODMAP friendly? I adored this dish and I’m positive you will too. Oh, and, did I mention this is also vegan? Serves 4 people Prep time: 40 minutes Ingredients: 200g quinoa 600ml water 1 aubergine, chopped 4cm wide and 2cm thick 300g cherry tomatoes,Continue reading “FODMAP friendly version of Ottolenghi’s cherry tomato and aubergine quinoa”
An idea I’ve been mulling over for a while now, I combine the zest of two lemons along with a few droplets of natural flavoured lavender to create this delicately floral and supremely spongey loaf cake ideal for spring baking. As with many of my baking recipes, I take inspiration from Ottolenghi’s dessert cookbook ‘Sweet,’ using his lemon and poppyseed loaf cake recipe to inform this FODMAP friendly creation. Instead of double cream, I use Oatly’s completely dairy-free (and vegan) single cream for a hearty sponge.
