Vegetarian Low FODMAP Recipes

Much like their counterparts in the vegetarian keto diet, following a low FODMAP diet as a vegetarian can be tricky.

The normal low FODMAP diet leans quite heavily on meat and fish, obviously something we want to avoid as vegetarians.

If you’re here and seaching for low FODMAP recipes, you’re probably already aware of what the diet consists of.

As a summary, the low FODMAP diet tries to avoid FODMAPS – Fermentable Oligosaccharides; Disaccharides; Monosaccharides; and Polyols. Essentially, they’re sugars that are poorly absorbed in the small intestine and can trigger symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

This list of ingredients is a great tool for what foods to avoid, and what is safe.

There are also a couple of tips and tricks we can learn when it comes to low FODMAP vegetarian recipes.

One massively restricting thing about the diet is losing flavour through ingredients that are not ‘allowed’.

Garlic and onions, key to so many savoury recipes, are a total no-go on the the low FODMAP diet. The flavour isn’t, though.

To make a garlic flavour, you could infuse oil with garlic, then remove the garlic before using.

Spring onions (green onions/scallions) are also off the table – well, the white bits are, anyway. The green section is fine, so you can still eat that part and enjoy the flavour in your meal.

Vegetable broth can be tricky – either you’ll need to buy one that is low FODMAP-friendly, or you could just make your own.

Down this list we’ve put together our top ten favourite vegetarian low FODMAP recipe ideas (and we’ve highlighted in red anything extra to pay attention to while cooking).

Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 14 oz firm tofu (ideally get fresh tofu from the supermarket)
  • 1 cup bean sprouts
  • ½ bunch radishes
  • ½ medium cucumber
  • 1 handful spinach
  • 1 small tin pineapple (small tin = 8 oz = 225g = ¼)

For the dressing

Instructions

  • Press out some excess moisture of the tofu block, then cut it into small cubes (about one square centimeter). In a pan heat up some oil at a medium heat and in the tofu goes. Fry for about 15 minutes until golden brown. Multitasking challenge: make sure you stir every now and then (and add some salt) while you prep the rest of the salad. You can do it, bring it on!
  • Next up: wash your veggies!
  • Slice the radishes.
  • Cut the cucumber lengthwise in half, remove the seeds with a small spoon and cube what’s left.
  • Cut the pineapple into small chunks as well.
  • Throw everything into a bowl along with the spinach and bean sprouts.

Now to the dressing

  • Combine olive oil, honey, sriracha, lime juice, salt and pepper and toss it into the salad.
  • Get the tofu cubes and place them in a separate bowl. Add them to each salad serving. (If you throw them right into the salad they’ll get mushy quickly).
  • Also for garnish, cut the chili and roughly crush or chop the peanuts. Sprinkle them over the salad when serving.
  • Enjoy!

  1. The Carrot Apple salad isn’t FODMAPS friendly. On the lists you linked to, it shows apples as high FODMAPS.

    I’m excited to try some of these recipes, thanks.

    • Hi Mary, yes, you’re absolutely right! That one sneaked past us somehow. I’ve now changed it for another recipe I love that is low-FODMAP. Thanks for writing, and enjoy the ones you try!

  2. This is great, I’d love to see more FODMAP content popping up here! Definitely making those quinoa muffins today 🙂
