Nothing beats thick and creamy low FODMAP Thai pumpkin noodle soup! I love how the fresh Asian flavours of ginger, spring onion, coconut milk, and coriander/cilantro combine to make a taste sensation and delicious low FODMAP recipe.
Make this meal vegan: Simply swap the fish sauce for a splash of soy sauce to create a yummy vegan meal.
Soy free option: Omit the soy sauce. The dish will still be super tasty.
FODMAP note: Canned coconut milk is low FODMAP in 80ml (1/3 cup) serves. This recipe is low FODMAP providing you divide it between the recommended number of serves.
Check the crushed ginger does not contain garlic. Crushed ginger is grated ginger that has been preserved in a jar. You can swap it for fresh ginger if you prefer.
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.
Check your dried chilli flakes do not contain onion or garlic powder.
Choose a stock that does not include onion or garlic. Massel have a range of low FODMAP, gluten free and vegan stock powders that are certified as low FODMAP. This product can be brought online around the world and is available from some supermarkets. Also check your Monash University FODMAP Diet App or FODMAP Friendly App for additional options. Or use our homemade chicken stock or vegetable stock.
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.
