We love a good Hotpot at FODMAP Friendly – a fantastic way to pack in more vegetables to your diet!
In traditional hotpots, you’ll often see onion and garlic. The fructans in onion and garlic and GOS in legumes are two FODMAPs that those with IBS aim to reduce when following the low FODMAP diet. To make this hotpot FODMAP Friendly, Cobram Estate Garlic and Onion Infused Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Leggo’s Classic Tomato with Chunky Tomato & Herb Pasta Sauce add that full flavour without the high FODMAP content that onion or garlic have. Also, the lentils should be canned, rinsed and drained as canned lentils have a lower FODMAP content as the oligosaccharides fructans and GOS (the ‘O‘ from FODMAP) as they are water soluble and leach out of the lentils into the water. Thus draining and rinsing is important to reduce the FODMAP content further.
