Homemade BBQ Sauce (FODMAP-friendly)

Jump to recipe

You asked…and I did it! I created a low FODMAP BBQ sauce.  This sauce is tasty, sweeeeeet and homemade (sans FODMAPs!)  But, I have to admit this was NO easy task! I tried a few times until I got it right.

I am usually pretty good mastering recipes but this one was tricky.

 I hope you like it. 🙂

First start with your favorite diced tomatoes.  I like to use Hunts diced tomatoes or Muir Glen Fire Roasted  (READ labels FODMAPers–not all diced tomatoes are free of garlic and onion).

I added some brown sugar, rice wine vinegar, Dijon mustard, a dash of paprika and chipotle chili pepper ( I used McCormick Gourmet Collection), garlic infused oil and some grated carrots (gotta squeeze in a little more good nutrition!)

I simmered on the stove top and then let it cool down a bit.

And blended it in my Ninja blender.



The BBQ sauce is not the typical deep red you may find in a commercial brand as it is free of some of the ingredients that typically give it that deep red color–but it tastes just as good. 😉

I added it to some chicken to make some Pulled Chicken BBQ! But you could also just drizzle it over rotisserie chicken, drizzle over lean pork chops, or use to make a BBQ style pizza with Udi’s gluten free pizza crust (for the FODMAP crowd).

And here’s my pulled chicken….with a side of my zucchini ribbons! This dish got a thumb’s up from my son!

Want the zucchini ribbons too? Recipe is here!

And Congrats to our winner, Ashley! You will be getting a low FODMAP booklet in the mail!
