Porridge is a great breakfast choice on the low FODMAP diet. It’s high fibre, low fat and low GI so it should keep you feeling full all morning. I like adding different things to porridge to change it up a bit and cardamom is one of my favourites. It just adds a lovely,warming scent without overpowering. I think almond milk works well with the cardamom but feel free to use another suitable low FODMAP milk instead. As always just check that the alternative milks don’t contain any apple juice, fruit juice concentrates, inulin or added fructose.
- 3 desert spoons or 30g rolled oats (I like the texture of jumbo oats)
- 200ml almond milk
- 3 cardamom pods
- ½ a banana sliced
- Place the ingredients in a small pan and cook gently, stirring regularly for about 5 minutes until the porridge has thickened (jumbo oats take a bit longer)
- Remove the cardamom pods and serve with the sliced banana
