Fresh and flavorful Low FODMAP Thai green curry – check the recipe notes for ingredient tips to keep this FODMAP friendly.
Why I love this Low Fodmap Thai Green Curry
- Flavor: This isn’t just good for a low FODMAP recipe. It’s honestly just a really delicious curry in general! I still regularly make this for dinner even though my husband no longer needs to adhere to a FODMAP friendly diet.
- Ease: There’s not too much chopping or prep needed in general. The curry paste blends together in blender or food processor which takes care of most of the hard work. Once the paste blends, everything cooks in one big pan.
- Healthy: This curry is absolutely packed with whole foods and fresh ingredients! You can even add more veggies if you like – I usually add an extra spinach towards the end for the added greens.
According to Monash University guidelines canned coconut milk is:
- low FODMAP at 1/3 cup (80 ml) per meal
- moderate FODMAP at 1/2 cup (120ml) per meal – moderate Polyol-sorbital
- high FODMAP at 3/4 cup (180ml) per meal – high Polyol-sorbital
1 can of coconut milk contains about 1.5 cups which is about 5 fodmap friendly (1/3 cup) servings per can.
In order to stay within the Low FODMAP range I recommend you limit serving sizes to one portion per meal.
Only use the dark green, leafy tops (not the firm, white bulbs).
Chicken or Vegetable Stock
If you can’t buy low fodmap stock in store you can use water instead. Just taste and season with more salt at the end as needed.
Yo can also make your own Homemade Low FODMAP Vegetable Stock at home! It’s easier than you think and super satisfying.
