These low FODMAP orange thyme pork skewers with chive slaw are sure to be a hit at your next gathering! The yummy pork skewers are easy to throw together… just make sure you leave enough time for them to marinate. Our top tip for juicy pork is to choose a pork cut that is marbled with a little bit of fat.
When buying cabbage make sure you choose common cabbage or red/purple cabbage (these are low FODMAP) not savoy cabbage which can be high FODMAP.
Garlic infused oil is found in the oil section of your local supermarket. 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 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.
Make sure you use pure maple syrup (low FODMAP) not maple flavoured syrup (potentially high FODMAP).
Buy a bunch of green onions/scallions with long green tips. You can use the green tips of the green onions/scallions (which are low FODMAP) and not the white stem when cooking.
Make your orange juice and orange zest from fresh oranges.
Make sure you choose Italian mixed herbs that do not include onion or garlic powder.
