This satisfying one-skillet Low FODMAP Pork Paella is made with 10 flavor-packed ingredients in just 30 minutes – perfect for an easy weeknight meal!


  • 2 tablespoons garlic-infused olive oil
  • 1 ½ pounds boneless pork loin, sliced thinly into bite-sized strips
  • 1 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 2 cups quick cooking brown rice
  • 1 ½ cup low FODMAP broth (I use Fody’s Low FODMAP Vegetable Broth)
  • 1 (15-ounce) can diced tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • ½ cup sliced green onion tops (green parts only)

Optional garnishes: lemon wedges, red pepper flakes


  1. Heat garlic-infused olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add strips of boneless pork loin and cook until almost done, about 8 minutes. Stir in diced red bell pepper and saute for 2 minutes more.
  2. To the skillet, add brown rice, broth, diced tomatoes, paprika, turmeric, and thyme. Stir to mix. Bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat to medium, cover, and simmer for 12 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove cover and stirring occasionally, continue to simmer for 5 minutes or until liquid is almost completely absorbed.   
  3. Stir green onion tops (green parts only) into the paella mixture. Serve warm with optional garnishes.
