Need help finding a low FODMAP vegetable broth? This recipe has no detectable FODMAPs, so you can easily add a fresh pop of flavour to all your favourite dishes!
While I'm a huge fan of whole foods, I also love the magic of cooking! I love the smell of layering flavours, the chemistry of creating tiny chain-reactions, and the feeling of taking a handful of individual ingredients and weaving them together into something brand new!
While these kinds of recipes may taste delicious, using compound ingredients like vegetable broth can make your FODMAP math a little complicated!
For starters, most prepared veggie broths contain garlic and onion, as well as other high FODMAP like celery and beet juice, etc.
While some of these ingredients have a smaller low FODMAP serving, it's impossible to know how how much of each ingredient is in the broth. So there's no way to know how much of each ingredient you're adding to your recipe. This can make adjusting your FODMAP math nearly impossible.
My solution was to create a vegetable broth with no FODMAPs (yay!). This recipe uses a ton of hearty vegetables and fresh herbs to draw out the rich, earthy flavour of a proper vegetable broth. But it focuses on vegetables without any detectable FODMAPs. So you can add it to all your favourite recipes without having to adjust your FODMAP math.
Heads up, I like to make this veggie broth in bulk and freeze it in 1/4 cup portions. That way, I always have it on hand when I need it!
