Low FODMAP Recipes in Under 25 Minutes

In a hurry but don’t want to end up with a funny tummy? Adjusting to a low FODMAP – a well-researched way of eating which can be successful in reducing symptoms of IBS – isn’t easy at first. However, once you’ve mastered the art of food no go’s (see you later gluten!) you’ll be rustling up low-FODMAP banquets before you can say ‘I feel fantastic!’

However, after a long day at work, we know the last thing any of us want to do is slave away in the kitchen; we need quick, easy, tasty and, most importantly, food intolerant friendly feasts.

Below are some of the YorkTest team’s favourite recipes you can cook at home in under 25 minutes – perfect as a quick dinner during the working week, or as a lazy weekend lunch.
