3 Low FODMAP Life Hacks With Tamara Duker Freuman


#1: Top it with Tahini! 

There’s nothing like a new condiment to broaden the flavor profile of your low FODMAP vegetable menu. Mix together 1/4 cup tahini paste, 1 TBSP lemon juice, 1/2 tsp cumin and 1/4 tsp kosher salt. Then add hot water 1 TBSP at a time, mixing as you go, to thin the sauce to a drizzly consistency. Top salads and roasted veggies alike!

#2: A low FODMAP… Matzoh ball?? 

If you’re anything like me, your idea of winter comfort food involves a steaming bowl of homemade matzoh ball soup. It’s one of the things my gluten-free and low FODMAP patients tell me they miss the most.  So I developed this easy recipe for delicious “Quatzoh” balls— which you can cook in a low FODMAP broth.
