Juicy low FODMAP lamb skewers drizzled in lemon yoghurt dressing served with smashed potato and slaw... YES PLEASE! These make an awesome throw together low FODMAP recipe and you can easily swap out the veggies on your kebabs to use up leftovers in the fridge. We made a super simple lemon yoghurt dressing using Low FODMAP coconut yoghurt but you could easily use plain lactose-free yoghurt instead.
Prep time note:The lamb skewers are best if you leave them to marinate for 4 hours or overnight so try and make these in advance!
Cooking note: If you don't have a BBQ don't worry. You can cook the skewers in a large frypan over medium-high heat.
Recipe update: Please note that this recipe was updated on the 5th of March 2022 after Monash University changed the serving size recommendation for red pepper/capsicum.
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.
Check the coconut yoghurt/lactose free yoghurt for inulin (chicory root) and high FODMAP sweeteners like honey, agave syrup, fructose, fruit juice, high fructose corn syrup or high FODMAP fruit.
Buy a bunch of spring onions/scallions with long green leaves. You can use the green leaves in your low FODMAP meals, just make sure you avoid using the white stem and lime green stems as these are high FODMAP. Once you've harvested the leaves pop the spring onion/scallion bulbs into a glass of water on the window sill. The leaves will reshoot so you can harvest them again.
Make your lemon juice and lemon zest from fresh lemon.
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.
