Halloumi seems to divide people into two camps. There are those who love its firm, chewy, creamy texture and others who think its ‘squeaky’ texture is an abomination within the fromage world. I fall into the former congregation. Although halloumi contains lactose, it is low FODMAP at a serving of 50g, although you can increase this portion to 100g if you’re okay with digesting lactose.
Ratatouille is an excellent side dish to serve with main meals, particularly if they’re Italian based. However, this ratatouille is substantial enough that if you’re vegetarian or vegan it’s enough to have as a main meal on its own.
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.
