When I asked what kind of recipes you would like to see on the blog, I often got the reaction “simple dinner recipes” and “comfort food”

The recipe that I want to share with you today is those things in one: it is easy to make and it is ultimate comfort food. I made low FODMAP bami goreng. And ahh it was so good! 

I make low FODMAP nasi goreng quite often, but I hardly ever make bami myself. I didn’t know exactly how to make bami goreng, so I used this family recipe by Smaakmenutie (in Dutch) as a basis. I made it low FODMAP and added some extra vegetables. 

I already know that I am going to make this recipe a lot. I made it for the first time two weeks ago and the week after I immediately made it again. I almost never repeat recipes so quickly, so that shows how much I liked this dish. My boyfriend loved it too, so I think I will add this recipe to my standard recipe repertoire. I like making a large serving at once, so we can eat from it more than once. This recipe also freezes well. 

The ingredients of the low FODMAP bami goreng

Below, I explain the ingredients from the recipe that can lead to questions: 

Rice vermicelli noodles: usually bami is made with thin wheat noodles, such as egg noodles. Because those are not low FODMAP, I choose to use rice vermicelli noodles. 

Stock: make sure you use stock powder or cubes that don’t contain any high FODMAP ingredients such as onion or garlic. 

Spring onion and leek: I use spring onion and leek in this recipe to add an onion-flavour to this recipe. The green part of leek and spring onion are low FODMAP, so only use the green part. 

Ketjap manis: ketjap manis is a sweet soy sauce. It usually contains wheat. For the low FODMAP diet this is not a problem, because it is only a small amount. If you have to eat strictly gluten-free, you can best choose a gluten-free ketjap manis.
