Low FODMAP Pad Thai

Fun fact: the Low FODMAP diet doesn’t need to be boring! I like to take my favorite recipes and do some #lowfodmap swaps to keep it easy (and delicious). 

Low FODMAP swaps in this recipe:

-Tamari (for soy sauce): tamari is like the Japanese soy sauce. It’s made from fermented soybeans and doesn’t typically contain wheat  

-Rice Noodles (for wheat noodles): Rice noodles are just that, noodles made from rice. Rice based products are typically low FODMAP while most (but NOT all) wheat based products are high.

-Garlic infused oil (for garlic): FODMAPs are water based, meaning they can’t leach into oils. Garlic infused oil is an low FODMAP way to get that garlic flavor in.
