Hands up if you LOVE garlic bread. We do! BUT we also love potato wedges… so we thought, why not combine all the best bits from the garlic bread - the cheese, the herby goodness, the garlic flavour and add those to crispy wedges. So we did, and these low FODMAP cheesy garlic bread inspired wedges are epic!
Also, you did hear me say garlic. Don’t worry - we don’t use actual garlic in the recipe. Instead, we use a garlic infused oil - this is a low FODMAP option so you get all of the garlic flavour with none of the tummy aches.
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.
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.
