Spring Onion or Green Onion
Spring onion can also be called green onion, scallions and in some places shallots. The white bulb and lime green stem need to be avoided on the low FODMAP diet. However the green leaves are a lovely low FODMAP option that can help you recapture onion flavour.
How much can you eat?
You can enjoy up to 1.5 cups of sliced spring onion/scallion leaves while in the first phase of the low FODMAP diet (this is heaps!). Check the Monash University FODMAP Diet App for more information.
Budget Saving Tip
Once you’ve cut off the leaves, place the spring onion/scallion bulb in a glass of water on the window sill. The leaves should reshoot over the next week and you will be able to harvest them again.
