Tomato Sauce – low FODMAP

Tomato Sauce – low FODMAP
I get a lot of people on the low Fodmap diet asking what they can do about sauces since so many of them contain either garlic and/or onion. We are kind of brainwashed into thinking that onions and garlic are the base of all flavour and it just isn’t true. I made this tomato sauce with very simple ingredients and it tastes great. You can either use it with meats, as a dip or as a pasta sauce. I have used it for all three.

If you need a dressing for a salad, the most basic dressing that most of us use actually is low Fodmap – olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper. Add some herbs or a little mustard if you want some extra oomph. And what about mayonnaise? Mayonnaise is also low Fodmap and you can find my recipe in this post.

I even make delicious pesto without garlic but with about 1 tsp of garlic-infused oil. So there are no excuses for saying that low Fodmap food is boring because you can’t find sauces.

    Good sauce! An anchovie or two might add some nice, subtle flavor. Can you eat truffles? A touch of truffle oil (a teaspoon or two) drizzled on top of the finished dish adds wonderful aroma and flavor. Really nice with a meat sauce.

      I should try a little anchovy – it would add a bit of depth. They haven’t tested truffles yet in the research centre. I should suggest they put it on their list. Sounds like a great addition to me.

    Suzzane,

    Thanks for taking the time to post these recipes. I am overwhelmed trying to eat low FODMAP and this really helps. I have a question about salad dressing. What would you recommend with a chicken and mixed greens salad? Thanks again.

    Wow the balsamic vinegar makes a difference. Thank you for sharing. Not only was this sauce delicious but it didn’t make me sick. YAY I can have red sauce again. I didn’t miss the garlic & onions
