I created this roasted carrot hummus for dinner when my vegan step-son came to visit recently and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. Hummus is traditionally made with chickpeas which are blended together with a mixture of spices and tahini to make a smooth, spicy dip which can be served with vegetable crudites, flatbreads, crackers or anything else that takes your fancy. However, chickpeas are notoriously high FODMAP, so I decided to incorporate roasted carrots and tomatoes into my hummus recipe which massively lowers the FODMAP content while adding a huge boost of flavour at the same time.

On occasion, if I’ve had a really rich meal for dinner the night before, I wake up with very little appetite and I only want something very light for breakfast that morning. This is often especially the case in the summertime when I don’t feel like eating a heavy breakfast first thing in the morning. Fruit salad fits that remit perfectly because although it is light it’s also extremely satisfying for the taste buds. Fruit can be tricky when it comes to the FODMAP diet because many fruits are naturally very high in fructose. However, there are a number of fruits which are low FODMAP and many of them are actually FODMAP-free!
I’ve struggled for a while now to develop a decent recipe for making homemade gluten-free scones because I find that the pre-made ones you can buy from the supermarket are often really dry and can be quite grainy. It’s taken some time, but I’m now really happy with this recipe and I’m glad to be able to share it with you.
Chia jam has been all the rage for a while now, but on the whole I’ve failed to see the attraction. However, when eating a low FODMAP diet, one of the things you need to watch out for is high FODMAP jams. A low FODMAP jam is a jam which is made with a suitably low FODMAP fruit, such as raspberries or strawberries, and is made with sucrose or glucose syrup. High FODMAP jams have got added fructose, high fructose corn syrup, glucose-fructose syrup, honey, agave syrup, sorbitol, mannitol, xylitol, maltitol, erythritol and isomalt.
