I love guacamole but unfortunately avocado is one of those vegetables that can be a problem if you have a sensitive gut like me. Avocado contains high amounts of sorbitol, which might contribute to digestive symptoms. A serving of 1/8 of an avocado is generally tolerable and considered low FODMAP but if you're making guacamole you generally need more then an 1/8 of an avocado. This is where Broccomole saves the day! This is by far one of the best low FODMAP dips I've made. I must admit I was a bit sceptical at first at making this broccoli dip because it didn't sound that great to me but it's so tasty and great to dip you vegetable baton in. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do...
(My homegrown broccoli from a few years ago before moving to Dubai)
Makes 3-4 Servings
200g (1 ½ cup) broccoli
5 -6 spring onions (green part only)
1 tsp lime juice
50g (½ cup) feta cheese
3 tbsp lactose free cream/milk or almond milk
A pinch of chilli flakes
1 tsp garlic infused oil
A pinch of salt and pepper
1. Chop your broccoli into chunks. Place it all in a microwave-safe bowl and put in the microwave until soft.
2. Add all ingredients (broccoli too!) into the mixer and blend until smooth.
3. Serve with vegetable batons or TR's Seeded Crisp Bread.
N.B. We like to serve it immediately when it is still a little warm but it can be kept in the fridge for a few days in an airtight container.
