Garlic is one of those FODMAP-containing foods that I quite frankly just wish, didn’t have FODMAPs. I love all things garlic-flavored! I used to put garlic powder on food like it was my job. Side note: black pepper and I don’t get along, so garlic was a next best choice. You can imagine I was pretty devastated when I found out my garlic powder-habit might be causing some of my *ahem* issues.
Luckily, I quickly discovered the joy that is garlic-infused olive oil. Holy, game changer! Since FODMAPs are water-soluble (they dissolve in water) and not oil-soluble (they don’t dissolve in oil), olive oil can be infused with garlic to add flavor while leaving behind the FODMAPs
The flavor of garlic-infused olive oil is not as pronounced as minced garlic, but it gets the job done. And, it makes for pretty darn delicious Low FODMAP Garlic Fries!
To make this easy low FODMAP side, add these ingredients to your shopping list:
- Russet potatoes – 2 medium
- Garlic-infused oil – 1 tablespoon
- Sea salt
- Fresh chives – 2 tablespoons snipped
Low FODMAP notes
In this section, I share information for ingredients that are either frequently asked about or have suggested serving sizes to remain low FODMAP. We each have unique tolerance levels and nutritional needs. Please listen to your body (and, if possible, work with a FODMAP-trained dietitian) to determine what is best for you. For more low FODMAP serving size info, please refer to the Monash FODMAP app and FODMAP Friendly website or app.
Chives are a FODMAP-free ingredient. They are usually used as a garnish and can add a subtle FODMAP-friendly garlic flavor to dishes.
Garlic-infused oil is a popular way to add low FODMAP garlic flavor on the low FODMAP diet. My current favorite is Colavita Roasted Garlic Olive Oil (technically a garlic-flavored oil) that Monash University has confirmed to be low FODMAP. Learn more about why garlic-infused oil is okay in my Low FODMAP Garlic and Onion Substitutes post.
Potatoes are a FODMAP-free food with or without the skin. Keeping the skin adds a little extra low FODMAP fiber.
