Low FODMAP Popped Lentils

Low FODMAP Popped Lentils

I must admit that I have not always been a fan of lentils. I know that many people absolutely love them but I always struggled to find ways to add them to dishes that didn’t detract from the flavor or texture of the dish. Well I have found a perfect way to enjoy the beauty of lentils!

Popped lentils are crispy, crunchy, and quite addictive! They can be eaten warm with a spoon for a tasty snack, or sprinkle them over a salad or some roast vegetables or use them as a side dish to your meal.

You may find that popped lentils are often made using dry lentils but it still works just as well with canned lentils. Plus, canned lentils are low in FODMAPs as the water-soluble FODMAP content leaches out into the water in the canning process.

The serving size is suitable if you are on the low FODMAP diet and is in line with the Monash Low FODMAP Diet App and the FODMAP Friendly app (at the time of writing).
