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.
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.
Check the peanut butter does not contain high FODMAP ingredients like honey, high fructose corn syrup, inulin (chicory root), or agave syrup.
Crushed/pureed red chilli is just fresh red chilli that has been pureed into a paste (usually with a bit of salt and a preservative). Often you can find it in jars in the supermarket. If you can't find it, then you can replace it in the recipe using finely chopped mild red chilli.
The amount of wheat in regular soy sauce is low FODMAP, however if you are feeling concerned you can buy gluten free soy sauce (Tamari).
