FODMAP Friendly Fried Rice

This dish is a staple in our kitchen because it’s just so versatile!

You can really pack the veggies in and easily customize it based on what you personally can tolerate and what you have in your fridge.

Keep it low-FODMAP and focus on carrots, bell peppers, zucchini, eggplant, or bean sprouts.

If you can tolerate them, add in some onions, garlic, mushrooms, broccoli, or peas.

Did you know that the green tops of spring onions are low-FODMAP? So top your bowls with confidence that you’re getting all the flavour without fear of a flare!

You could also reduce (or remove) the eggs and substitute in another source of protein – cooked chicken, shrimp, tofu, etc.

Make the rice the day before for the bext texture.

This recipe stores well, so double up and have the leftovers the next day! (Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days.)
