I hope you are all staying safe and feeling emotionally okay during these house-bound days. I have been enjoying the “cooking at home gig” –but have to admit I am running out of fun meal ideas! Feel free to leave a comment with a low FODMAP recipe link or quick recipe to share as I know many of you are in the same boat!
Being married to an Italian, we have been making a fair amount of Italian dinner options.
Last week, we made a low FODMAP chicken, broccoli and ziti option–very easy to prepare if you have a suitable gluten free pasta and garlic infused oil, just limit broccoli florets to about 3/4 cup per serving! I dressed up my pasta with a little extra parmesan cheese and some red pepper flakes.
I also made this Baked Eggplant Parmesan, which was so good! I dipped the prepared eggplant rounds in egg and then in gluten free breadcrumbs that I seasoned up with basil and oregano. (Tip: you could also add a little Parmesan cheese to the breadcrumbs too, about 2 tablespoons)
Then, I infused some delicious flavor into diced tomatoes, adding a little garlic infused oil, more oregano and basil. This tomato sauce was topped evenly on each eggplant round. (Tip: you could sub in a low FODMAP marinara, such as FODY foods brand) Disclaimer: I consult with FODY foods.
Next up, I added some freshly grated Mozzarella. Tip: you can add a little extra Parmesan and a drizzle of garlic infused oil on top of the eggplant rounds too for extra flavor!
