20-minute Low FODMAP Turkey Larb is a delicious mix of browned turkey and FODMAP-friendly Asian flavors. Serve in lettuce wraps or over a scoop of rice.



Serving Suggestions:

  • Lettuce leaves
  • Carrot sticks
  • Cooked rice
  • Lime wedges


  1. Heat oil in a skillet. Add turkey and brown until cooked. Add red bell pepper and continue to cook until soft.
  2. Stir in sambal oelek, lime juice, and fish sauce. Adjust to taste, as needed. Cook for 1-2 minutes to allow for some of the liquid to evaporate. Remove from heat.
  3. Add in cilantro and chives. Stir to mix. Serve warm on lettuce leaves topped with carrot matchsticks, lime wedges, and/or cooked rice.


Ground Turkey: Could also use plain ground pork or chicken.

Sambal Oelek:  Indonesian condiment made from red chili peppers and vinegar. It has not yet been tested by Monash University but is made from FODMAP-friendly ingredients.
