This is the perfect gluten free Pad Thai recipe that also caters for the low fodmap diet. You don't have to be good at cooking for this recipe, it is super easy and has delicious Thai flavours in the comfort of your own home.
For those of you dealing with gut sensitivities and gut issues or are following a low Fodmap diet then this is a great easy on the stomach recipe that is absolutely flavoursome.
They key to making a great low Fodmap Pad Thai is finding ingredients that work! Always look for substitutions instead of removing ingredients.
For this recipe, utilising an onion and garlic infused olive oil is the way to go, since we won't be using garlic or onion in this recipe! This infused oil replaces the flavours beautifully. The next tip is to only use the green tops of the spring onion as the tops are classified as low fodmap, I use about 1/3 cup on spring onions in this recipe.
I also prefer to use salted peanuts in this recipe, so make sure you don't overly season the chicken with salt. I find the salted peanuts add extra flavour to this dish!
