Hoping to open a FODMAPS cafe one day with delicious food that people with intolerances, like me, can actually eat!

Chicken Arrabiata

IChickenArrabiata pulled out some chicken thighs from the freezer this morning and needed some inspiration…so I looked through my cookbooks and found a delicious-sounding pasta recipe called ‘Chicken Arrabiata’ in my Hamlyn ‘200 Chicken Recipes’ book. As usual, I had to make a few adjustments to make it FODMAPS friendly (i.e. remove the onion and garlic) but the final product was very tasty and my husband licked his bowl clean – which is always a good sign! Our 15 month old daughter also gobbled it all up, so you know it’s also family friendly.

I did a quick Google search for what ‘arrabiata’ means – and apparently it means ‘angry’ because the dish packs a nice punch of heat and spice. The dish I made this evening wasn’t too spicy, but I guess it comes down to the Cook and how much spice you add!

Ingredients (Serves 4)

4 chicken thighs, boned, skinned, cut into cubes

1 teaspoon Portuguese Chicken spice or Paprika, to taste

1/2 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper (or dried crushed chilies), to taste

400g (13oz) can chopped tomatoes

250ml Massels Salt Reduced Liquid Chicken Stock

4 cups of San Remo Gluten Free pasta

Olive oil

Salt and pepper

Method

1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan and add the chicken. Fry for 5 minutes until lightly browned.

2. Mix in the Portuguese Chicken spice and Cayenne Pepper and cook for 1 minute, then stir in the tomatoes, chicken stock and a little salt and pepper. Bring to the boil, then cover and simmer for 20 minutes until the chicken is tender. (And it was oh-so-tender tonight!)

Meanwhile…

3. Fill a second saucepan with water, bring to the boil, then add the pasta. Simmer for 10 minutes until just tender, then drain.

4. Divide the pasta among four bowls and pour in the Chicken Arrabiata sauce.

5. Enjoy!!

Happy new year!

Hello fellow low-FODMAPPERS!

Welcome to 2015. Hopefully it’s a year filled with happy, non-bloated tummies! One of my resolutions for the new year is to place more focus on this blog and expand my range of recipes for you to try out. There’s a couple that I have played around with a few times but haven’t yet uploaded here – but I’ll get onto that very soon.

However, to kick off the new year I wanted to get some input from you, my followers, in regards to what kind of recipes you are looking for. Are you after main meals to cook for your family and/or guests? Entrées, desserts, or snacks? I know that my sauce post has been particularly popular – would you like more sauce inspiration? Or is there anything else? Please comment below and let me know!

I’ve been on the low-FODMAPs diet for a while now and I’m lucky that I have family and friends who try to cater for me where possible. But if anyone you know is struggling, feel free to point them in the direction of this blog. Cooking without gluten, lactose, onion or garlic etc IS possible!

Speak soon,

Leanne

Exciting new low-FODMAPS soups and stock!

Sue Shepherd's Stock and Soup

Dear FODMAPs Followers,

Check these out! My latest discovery! Actually, to be honest it was my Grandpa’s original discovery; in an attempt to cater for me for dinner, he sourced the vegetable stock from the health food aisle in his supermarket. I then wondered – does MY local supermarket stock them?! So I checked out my local Coles supermarket and sure enough, I found these babies! They are Dr Sue Shepherd’s products, who is the woman who introduced the low-FODMAPs diet, so you know that they are perfect for our tummies. I LOVE the fact that they have ‘No onion and garlic’ slapped onto the packaging; one of my well-versed phrases when eating out!

I have yet to try them out, but I’m pretty confident that they’ll taste pretty good! Will let you know!

Apologies to anyone whose outside of Australia. I believe these are only appearing in Coles supermarkets at the moment.

I have been meaning to buy this guide / cookbook since I started the low-FODMAPS diet. Dr Sue Shepherd is the the person who developed the diet so I knew I had to get my hands on it!

The recipes look absolutely amazing! I’ll post my favourites on here when I get the chance to try them out. 🙂
