Hummus. Hommus. Houmous.
Doesn’t matter how you spell it, it’s delicious. It contains a great dose of fibre and prebiotics (which are great for gut health) BUT some hummus’ can also cause a bit gut-grief. Never fear – a low FODMAP hummus recipe is here!
There are different versions, but generally the traditional hummus recipe includes the triple threat of FODMAPs – chickpeas, sesame seeds (tahini) and garlic.
However, if we shift around the recipe, modify some of the ingredients and measurements PLUS take care with how much is actually eaten, then a homemade hummus can still be enjoyed on a low FODMAP diet. Check out the following recipe.
1 serve = 2 tbsp of hummus
Tip: For beetroot hummus, substitute half the chickpeas for the same quantity of tinned beetroot.
