Would “bland” be a good way to describe the current state of your SIBO diet? If you answered yes, then you must try this amazingly flavorful and simple low FODMAP peanut sauce recipe!
Because…Food is supposed to taste good!
And food is supposed to help you feel good too.
I am a big fan of using healing herbs and spices, such as ginger, in my cooking. Not only does ginger add amazing flavor, but this knobby root has the following health-promoting properties :
Ginger is believed to be beneficial for individuals who have conditions such as :
- Degenerative disorders (arthritis & rheumatism)
- Digestive health issues (nausea, vomiting, constipation, indigestion, & ulcers)
- Cardiovascular problems (atherosclerosis & hypertension)
- Type 2 diabetes
If you are looking for more low-FODMAP recipes that use ginger, I encourage you to take a peek at some other recipes on my site:
- Juice of 1 lime (about 2 Tbsp juice)
- 2 tsp freshly grated ginger (I like to use a microplane to grate it- but be careful, it's sharp!)
- ¼ cup creamy unsweetened peanut butter
- 2 tsp pure maple syrup (or honey for SCD or if you tolerate it better than maple syrup, but there is debate about whether or not it is low FODMAP)
- 4 tsp coconut aminos (or 1 Tbsp GF tamari if you tolerate soy)
- 2 Tbsp sesame oil (or other neutral-tasting oil such as avocado oil)
- 2 Tbsp water
- Make sauce by adding all ingredients (lime juice, fresh ginger, peanut butter, maple syrup, coconut aminos, oil, and water) to a blender and blend until smooth.
