This creamy low FODMAP pepper and tomato soup combines rich tomato flavours with the sweetness of roasted pepper/capsicum, carrot and parsnip! My friends and family LOVE this soup. We enjoy serving it with a side of low FODMAP toast.
Recipe update: Please note that this recipe was updated on the 13th of March 2022 after Monash University changed the serving size recommendation for red pepper/capsicum. You can find the original recipe here.
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.
Choose plain canned tomatoes with no added herbs or spices. Check there is no added onion or garlic.
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.
Wheat or spelt sourdough breads make good options. Also check your Monash or FODMAP Friendly apps for certified low FODMAP breads in your area.
Avoid ingredients like inulin, apple or pear juice, apple fibre, concentrated fruit juices, honey, or high fructose corn syrup.
Also check what flours have been used, avoid products that contain amaranth flour, lupin flour, chickpea/besan/gram/garbanzo bean flour, lentil flour or large amounts of soy flour or coconut flour especially if choosing gluten free bread.
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.
