Low FODMAP Game Day Recipes
Writing this post right before lunch was perhaps not the best idea – now I’m getting hungrier and hungrier! But hey! What are your plans for the super bowl? I’m not a huge fan of football as a sport, but I am a fan of it as a social event. This goes all the way back to high school when I’d go to Friday night games to hang out with my friends, and when I got home my dad would ask me “who won?” and I’d be like “ummm…”
So obviously super bowl parties are in my future, but – as with parties in general – they present the problem: what can I eat? Because most everything that is there is filled with wheat, garlic, onion, or all of the above. My solution is to bring my own food! I’ve rounded up a few of my own recipes and some recipes from around the internet to give you inspiration for wherever you’re going tomorrow! Enjoy!
Low FODMAP Football Foods
- Salsa! Homemade salsa is an easy option, especially if you have a blender or food processor. I’ve got a recipe for salsa verde here, and I’m planning on making this charred salsa verde (without the onions, obvs) and bringing it to our friends’ super bowl party!
- Tortilla soup is always good for feeding a crowd
- Pizza! Detroit style would be a hit, or if you’re feeling adventurous, sourdough is always delicious 🍕🍕🍕🍕
- This pineapple walnut cheese ball looks delicious
- Dip! This spinach dip looks tasty, and I’ll always say yes to some baba ganoush
- I might also need to make this roasted red pepper and pumpkin hummus from Monash University
- Rosemary chicken stuffed bell peppers sound like a good option for something more hearty
- Baked mozzarella chicken rolls, yum! Use plain gluten free bread crumbs (or just crumble some stale bread), omit garlic & onion and use garlic infused olive oil, and unseasoned tomato sauce.
- 20 minute turkey taco nachos anybody? Swap the onions & garlic for garlic-infused olive oil, use low FODMAP chicken stock, leave out the beans, and use lactose free yogurt or sour cream for topping.
- I’ve got a soft spot for sweet potato fries, and these chipotle ones look awesome! Leave out the garlic powder to make them low FODMAP.
- And these birria puffy tacos just look insanely delicious. (Again, leave out onion & garlic everywhere and use low FODMAP chicken broth.)
