Say hello to your new have with EVERYTHING side dish! My Crunchy Low FODMAP Garlic Bread.
I'm not even going to pretend that this recipe is healthy... it's just down right delicious. It's slightly salty, crunchy on the outside and chewy on the inside, generously saturated in buttery goodness with hints of garlic. It's addictive. The smell of garlic bread wafted through the house and had my family fighting over these crunchy triangles.
The garlicky flavour in this garlic bread recipe comes from garlic infused oil. Fun fact, garlic infused oil is Low FODMAP as it only contains the flavour, not the FODMAPs. The fructans in garlic are only water-soluble not oil soluble, which means they can't leach into the oil.
This recipe is also super easy to throw together from pantry staples. All you need are these 5 ingredients!

Garlic infused oil is normally found in the oil section of your local supermarket or you can buy it online. It should be clear with no floating bits of garlic.
You can also make garlic infused oil at home by frying garlic cloves in cooking oil until they are golden and fragrant, then remove and discard the garlic before you continue cooking your meal. This is a low FODMAP way to capture the garlic flavour as the fructans can't leach into the oil.
Wheat or spelt sourdough breads make good options. Also check your Monash or FODMAP Friendly apps for certified low FODMAP breads in your area.
Avoid ingredients like inulin, apple or pear juice, apple fibre, concentrated fruit juices, honey, or high fructose corn syrup.
Also check what flours have been used, avoid products that contain amaranth flour, lupin flour, chickpea/besan/gram/garbanzo bean flour, lentil flour or large amounts of soy flour or coconut flour especially if choosing gluten free bread.
Herbs and spices are naturally gluten free, however they can become contaminated during manufacturing processes. If you are highly sensitive to gluten, check the dried herbs and spices do not contain a warning for trace gluten. If you are just on the low FODMAP diet you do not need to worry about this.
Use a dairy free spread or olive oil spread instead of butter. Butter is considered low FODMAP.
