Sushi is a crowd favourite - it's delicious and nutritious. However, if you're on a low FODMAP diet, you have to be mindful of high fructose syrups (often used in the rice), crumbed or battered protein (often high in wheat), and sauces like teriyaki (which may contain garlic and/or onion).
The good news is we have developed two funky, low FODMAP recipes to satisfy those sushi cravings! If you give them a go, make sure you tag us @fodbods on Instagram :)
These low FODMAP sushi cups are a fun family activity to get everyone in the kitchen, cooking and eating healthy, nutritious food.
Seaweed is a great source of vitamins and minerals, in particular iodine, which is great for our thyroid function. It also boosts the taste, texture, and flavour profile of any dish!
If you're on the low FODMAP diet, you probably stay away from teriyaki sauce, which usually contains high FODMAP ingredients like golden syrup and garlic. We've used a teriyaki recipe that is quick, low FODMAP and tastes just as good (if not better) than any store-bought teriyaki sauce.
This recipe is a funky twist for those who don’t like seaweed or simply cannot be bothered to roll your own sushi. They’re easily adaptable to any diet or taste preferences and are perfect for little lunchboxes (something different from the usual sanga plus they stay together so well)!
Note: if you find that rice bloats you, feel free to omit the rice and replace it with extra tuna or salmon :)
