Low FODMAP AND vegan?! Yes fellow foodies, this duo can thrive together. If Toy Story’s Woody and Buzz could become friends, so too can low FODMAP and vegan cuisine.
We know how difficult it can be to satisfy both parties, which is why we’ve cooked up these five low FODMAP vegan recipes for your busy week. Each recipe is easy to make, full of flavor, and should appease even the pickiest of eaters (re: your kids).
Monday: Smoky Tempeh & Lentil Low FODMAP Chili
The best remedy for a case of the Mondays is either an evening of The Bachelor, or some good ol’ hearty home cooking.
We’ve added smoked paprika and chili flakes to the recipe for some extra kick, an assortment of low FODMAP vegetables, and a touch of maple syrup for balance, and as homage to our neighbors down south. We see you, Canada.
Tuesday: Easy Low FODMAP Quesadillas with Lentils
If you’re low FODMAP and vegan, you probably thought Taco Tuesdays were taking a permanent siesta from your life.
Well you’re in luck – Taco Tuesdays are indeed alive (sort of) through our low FODMAP quesadillas with lentils! A surefire hit with the kids, they’ll hardly notice the difference in swapping lentils with the typical ground beef, thanks to the cayenne, chili flakes, and/or cumin you can freely season your quesadillas with. The low FODMAP dish finds balance through bright veggies like bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, and spinach.
Wednesday: Low FODMAP Burrito Bowl with Chickpeas
Hump Day is a grind. After Monday, Wednesday is arguably the toughest day to get through, so we like something with substance to power through the rest of the week.
Fody’s low FODMAP burrito bowl with chickpeas offers a good variety of protein and nutrients, highlighted by protein-packed chickpeas, Instagram stars from the past (avocado) and present (kale), and nutty brown rice to level out all the fresh flavors.
As an added bonus, this low FODMAP dinner keeps well, making for an easy low FODMAP vegan lunch the next day!
Thursday: Korean BBQ Low FODMAP Tofu
Thursday has always been associated with one thing: Being the day before Friday.
Now you can associate Thursdays with something else - tofu!
Introduce Tofu Thursdays to the fam with Fody’s simple and quick Korean BBQ low FODMAP tofu recipe, combining cabbage, broccoli, and tofu marinated in our signature low FODMAP Korean BBQ marinade.
This low FODMAP dinner idea has a variety of textures for satisfying bites, tons of protein via the tofu, vibrant color for an excellent social media picture, and flavor, because, well we like food that tastes good.
Feel free to mix up the side starch, like quinoa, plain white rice, or brown rice.
Friday: Low FODMAP Vegan Quinoa & Salad with Cilantro Pesto
It’s Friday! You made it! So, end the week with...arguably the healthiest dish of the week.
We know, you probably want to celebrate the end of a long work week with something fried and unhealthy, but we like to eat light on Friday nights. This way, you can indulge a little more over the weekend and really enjoy your break.
Fody’s low FODMAP vegan quinoa with side salad drizzled in cilantro pesto unites the freshness of a green salad (we opt for baby kale and arugula here) with added protein and fiber from the grains. You’ll love the vibrant low FODMAP vegan pesto made with cilantro, Fody’s Low FODMAP Garlic-Infused Olive Oil, and nutritional yeast, which adds a creamy texture that many find almost cheese-like.
We hope you have a wonderful week ahead of low FODMAP eating! For more low FODMAP recipe ideas, be sure to bookmark Fody’s recipe section on your browser! And for all the low FODMAP products you need, stop by our online pantry (it’s always open).
