Recipe Two: Pineapple Rice
As we have said in past blogs, there is no possible way to completely cut FODMAPs from your diet, however you can eat them in small doses. For example, in this recipe we use pineapple as a main ingredient. Pineapple is considered a high FODMAP food, however, it does not elicit severe symptoms from patients. For this reason, we have decided to add pineapple to this dish. We will warn, overeating large quantities of pineapple can cause some discomfort. It is wise to only use pineapple as instructed in this recipe or Casa de Sante’s low FODMAP recipe book.
The recipe calls for:
200-250g Rice, boiled
1 tbsp Coconut Oil
And for the salad:
As an IBS patient, it is important to remember that a lot of grains are out of your reach. Wheats and grains such as breads, wheat products, and cakes, are all high in FODMAPs and will result in symptoms of discomfort. However, grains such as rice products are still available to you. The following are all the different types of rices you can enjoy with any of your meals.
- Basmati rice
- Brown rice
- Rice noodles
- White rice
Our Pineapple Rice dish can be made with any one of these rices, it only depends on your preference! In the video provided by Casa de Sante, our chef uses white rice. But again, you can make this dish your own by choosing the style of rice and even adding your own garnishes!
Step One: Cut a full pineapple in half and then empty out the pineapple “meat” from one of the halves. Now, take a bowl and put the pieces of pineapple into it.
Step Two: In this step, you must cook your rice. This portion of the recipe can take a little bit of time, as rice normally take about seven to eight minutes to cook.
Step Three: Once the rice has been cooked, place the rice in with the cut pieces of pineapple. Mix the pineapple and rice together. After you have mixed both ingredients, stir in the coconut oil, poppy seeds, and lemon herb seasoning.
Fill in the empty pineapple halves with the mixed rice. Make sure you put most of your rice on one side of the pineapple shell. This will allow you to have room for your side salad.
Garnish the other half of the pineapple shell with lettuce, carrots, cucumbers, sweet peppers, and radishes. As we said before, this dish allows you to be creative; so you can garnish it with anything that is low FODMAP and delicious!
That is it! You have created a truly delectable lunch in no time at all! This dish can be easily packaged in tupperware for a picnic or for your work. It is easy to make and very healthy. For an IBS patient, this is the perfect light meal that can be snacked on during your lunch break! See Casa De Sante's YouTube channel for more exciting lunch recipes!
