Low FODMAP roast rhubarb and creamy vanilla custard topped with ginger crumbs makes a lovely dessert. This low FODMAP recipe is easy enough to whip up on a weeknight but delicious enough to serve at special occasions like Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner.
Creating ginger crumbs: We used our soft ginger cookies to create yummy ginger crumbs, however you can use any low FODMAP ginger cookies.
FODMAP note on custard: Make sure the custard powder does not contain milk powder.
Buy a custard powder that does not include milk powder or whey powder. We used Edmonds Gluten Free Custard Powder which contained maize cornflour, colours (beta-carotene, riboflavin), salt and flavour. Or use our vanilla custard recipe.
Low FODMAP milk options include lactose free milk, almond milk, hemp milk, macadamia milk, quinoa milk, rice milk (3/4 cup or less per serve), soy milk made from soy protein (not whole or hulled soybeans), UHT coconut milk (1/2 cup or less per serve).
Make sure your low FODMAP milk does not include high FODMAP ingredients like inulin (chicory root), agave syrup, fructose, high fructose corn syrup, molasses, or honey.
If using a dairy free alternative choose one that contains 120mg of calcium per 100ml serve, and 3g of protein per 100ml serve (this info is in the nutrition label).
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.
