Finding low FODMAP chicken stock can be a bit challenging as many commercial brands include onion and garlic. This super easy low FODMAP chicken stock is a tasty addition to many meals and keeps well in the freezer! All you have to do is pop everything into the slow cooker and let it do the rest. I also turn the left over stock ingredients into a delicious frittata once the liquids have been drained off.
FODMAP Note: Celery can contain moderate to high levels of mannitol (polyol) if you consume more than 12g per serve. The recipe contains 60g of celery which is 5 safe servings and makes over 9 cups of chicken stock. This means each serve is low 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 buy a leek that has long green tips (this is the low FODMAP part), as you can’t use the white/light green leek bulb (this part is high FODMAP).
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.
