Transcription of “What I had for my Low Fodmap Dinner”
Today I thought I would tell you what I had for dinner last night. I thought this might show you my planning, my thought process, and then what I end up with at the end. And I’ll show you a photograph as well. So I had my son coming over for dinner and, of course, this is just a casual dinner if it’s just my son. But I like to make something that he wants as well, but it has to be low FODMAP. So I went and got some low-FODMAP tortillas. In New Zealand, you can find these. Farrah’s makes them. And I’m sure if New Zealand makes them, then most other countries will as well. I bought a pack of those and I decided to make the meal vegetarian. We’d had steak the night before and I like to vary things between fish, chicken, red meat, and vegetarian. So I knew I had already in the fridge some baby spinach and some tomatoes, so I used that as my base. And I went to the shops on my walk because I walk every day. And I bought a small can of corn. Not creamed corn; just the corn in the liquid. And what else did I get? I got some spring onions and cottage cheese and I think that was all I used. Oh, I did get an avocado, but that’s because I don’t have a problem with sorbitol. If you’ve got a problem with sorbitol then, of course, you leave the avocado out.
So then what I did was I turned on the oven and I got a big oven tray and placed three tortillas on it. And then I put the cottage cheese and the baby spinach into a blender and blended it to a paste. And then I spread that over the three of the tortillas. Then I mixed up in a bowl chopped up tomato, chopped up spring onions, the chopped up avocado, and the corn. And I put a tiny bit of garlic oil in there and salt and pepper. I mixed that all together and I piled that onto the cottage cheese and spinach mixture. Not too high, just made sure it was completely covered. Then I got another tortilla for each one and popped it on top and grated some mature cheese over the top of each one. I then drizzled them with olive oil and popped them into a moderate oven. Now, it doesn’t take too long because really all you’re doing is heating them through and getting that cheese to melt. I didn’t time it, but I would probably say 10, 15 minutes, but that would depend on your oven as well. You take those out, put them on a board, and cut them into quarters and serve them with a slice to lift them over onto the plate. I can assure you they’re delicious and everybody loved them. And a really simple dinner. I mean, I made it right in front of him. I didn’t even start until he had arrived and just while we were chatting and having some nibbles and so on, I made them in no time at all. So that’s what I had for dinner. How about you trying that? I will include the recipe and a photo. Thanks for watching and goodbye.
