Mains & Sides:
The culinary star of any Thanksgiving dinner table, getting the turkey right is going to be simple with this juicy recipe. Roasting time depends on the oven power and weight of the turkey. Make sure it is fully cooked throughout before serving, and allow to cool before carving.
Tip: Save some of the turkey juices from the pan, and boil with 2 tbsp. of Casa de Sante’s vegetable stock powder, 2 cups water and ¼ cup of low FODMAP flour to create a rich gravy sauce.
A thanksgiving dinner is never complete without some scrumptious stuffing to complement the meal. However, most stuffing dishes are often made with onion, garlic, and other high FODMAP ingredients. You don’t have to compromise on flavor, with this low FODMAP lemon & herb stuffing.
Tip: Creamy Mashed Potatoes:
Instead of mashing potatoes with milk, sour cream and garlic, avoid FODMAPs by subbing these ingredients with IBS-friendly alternatives. Potatoes themselves are low in FODMAPs, so control what you add to the dish by choosing low FODMAP ingredients. For a creamy mashed potato dish, how about you try mixing your potatoes with lactose-free milk, a dab of butter, and a tsp of Casa de Sante’s Low FODMAP Tuscan Herb seasoning for a pinch of rich flavor!
Succulent and juicy chicken is always a winner at any holiday dinner table. Prepare this dish with your favorite low FODMAP veggies, such as carrots, broccoli, potatoes, and more. This foolproof recipe is extremely easy to make. Simply layer your ingredients in your crockpot, and forget about it for a few hours. When serving the vegetables, make sure to watch serving sizes to avoid consuming high FODMAP portions!
End your meal on a sweet note with a fall-favorite: a creamy slice of pumpkin pie. If you’d like to add more spice, sprinkle the mixture with a pinch of cinnamon and nutmeg for extra flavor. Fill the room with an autumnal, sweet aroma as this bakes in the oven. Who’s hungry for dessert?
Use the first recipe to make more candied pecans for your guests to nibble on with their drinks after the main meal. Always watch your serving sizes and stick to 10 pecans for a low FODMAP serve.
