This is one of my foolproof, quick and easy, ultimate FODMAP recipes. It’s kind of saved my life since starting this diet as I know that everything in it is allowed and you can chop and change the ingredients depending on what you fancy! This recipe normally makes 2 huge bowls (you could probably get […]
