Maple Dijon Pork Kabobs (fodmaps-friendly)


  • 1 pound pork tenderloin, cut into bite size chunks (can substitute chicken)
  • 2 red bell peppers, ribs and seeds removed, and cut into 1 ½ inch squares
  • 1/2 fresh pineapple, cut into 1 ½ inch chunks
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • ¼ cup Dijon mustard
  • 1 yellow summer squash (can substitute zucchini)
  • 8 bamboo skewers, soaked in water to prevent burning


  1. In medium size bowl, add pork, maple syrup and mustard and mix to evenly coat pork, cover with plastic wrap and let sit in refrigerator overnight or for at least 2-3 hours to marinate.
  2. Preheat grill.
  3. Thread skewers alternating with pork, pineapple, red pepper and summer squash.
  4. Grill skewers for about 5 minutes, turn and cook another 5 minutes. To ensure safe cooking, be sure pork is no longer pink on the inside and instant read thermometer measures 145 degrees. For safety and quality, let pork sit for 3 minutes prior to consumption.

    Thanks for your recipes. I’m just starting out with this so it’s good to have some resources. Just in case there are other Aussies using these recipes- the American Tablespoon is 3 teaspoons and the Australian Tablespoon is 4 teaspoons.

    I thought summer squash was on the ‘no’ list for FODMAP eating? I don’t have the official Monash list, but I’ve done a lot of research online and found most list it as a ‘no.’

    Hi Kate,
    I am very new to this Foodmap Diet.
    Basically it seems to be Gluten and Lactose free. Correct?
    I found your site while researching the Foodmap Diet the Doctor recommended for my husband.
    We both dislike the taste of Olive Oil and I would like to know if I can substitute Safflower or Grape seed Oil for Recipes.
    Is there any way on the site to get the recipes Printer friendly?
    I tried to print the maple pork tenderloin recipe but it would give my more than 5 pages.
    I really love the site, lots of good information.

    Thank you,

      Hi Elisabeth…I just updated the maple dijon pork kabob recipe so that you would be able to print the recipe only. Link:

      Some of my earlier posts I did not have the technology on my site to make the post print the recipe alone….my newer recipes however all can be printed –just the recipe! I wish I have an extra 2 days in the week to do work on my older posts…but unfortunately, I don’t… Yes you can sub in safflower or grapeseed oil –how about peanut oil or sesame….I love them too! The low FODMAP diet is a diet modified in small sugars and fibers that ferment and create gas easily. Lactose is a small fermentable sugar so the diet is low lactose. The low FODMAP diet per se–is not gluten free but because the sources of gluten are wheat, barley and rye (all FODMAPs sources)–the diet excludes many gluten rich foods. Gluten is a protein and the low FODMAP diet is focusing on sugars. Hope that helps! I know…it is confusing as first…but you will get the hang of it! And I am glad you like my site…means a lot to me…I spend a lot of time here! 😉
