FODMAP-friendly vegetarian recipes

There’s not much worse than getting stuck in a rut with dinners. What is worse, though, is feeling constrained by your dietary requirements and eating the same thing constantly as a result. To aid my fellow FODMAP friendly vegetarians out there, I have collated this list of my favourite FODMAP-friendly vegetarian recipes.

Vegetarian spaghetti bolognese

This is one of my favourite recipes – the one that started my obsession with frozen tofu. It’s filling, protein packed and undetectably vegetarian. This recipe is nut free, egg free, dairy free and vegan.

Crispy miso tofu with broccolini and furikake rice

Once you’ve tasted furikake, you can never go back. This vegan version entails a mix of nori, sesame, sugar and salt, and it is the perfect accompaniment to this easy dish. This recipe is nut free, dairy free, egg free and vegan.

Sweet and sticky ginger buckwheat noodles

Beyond the noodles and sauce, this dish can be whatever you want it to be. I’ve added tofu, radishes and carrots, but you can add whatever you fancy or have on hand. This recipe is nut free, dairy free, egg free and vegan.

FODMAP friendly moussaka

Arguably one of the best meal prep dinners, an afternoon of cooking makes for a week of delicious dinners. This moussaka is vegetarian, nut and egg free. It can be made vegan using a plant based cheese and milk in the bechamel.

Gluten free potato gnocchi

Aka pillowy, comforting little bites of heaven. This gnocchi can be made without starches and is naturally nut free. Bake it in my FODMAP friendly roasted tomato sauce topped with cheese for a wintery delight.

If you’re keen to get a FODMAP friendly garlic hit in your life, this dish is for you. It uses garlic infused oil to achieve a delicious yet simple result. A classic pantry staple dish, this is nut free, egg free and easily made vegan. It is endlessly customisable and a great basic to have in your back pocket.

Crispy tofu and tomato salad with tamarind and makrut lime sauce

This South East Asian inspired salad is honestly one of my favourite recipes. It’s such an unusual combination of ingredients that works so incredibly well together. This recipe is vegan and egg free.

Gluten free sourdough pizza bases

There are few things more satisfying than making your own pizza bases from scratch. These pizza bases are gluten free and gum free, completely homemade courtesy of the sourdough starter. Some accompaniments? My FODMAP friendly pizza sauce, or my non-sourdough gluten free pizza bases if you don’t have a starter on hand.

Cacio pepe potato bake

Because in my world, potatoes are absolutely an acceptable main course. The flavours of fresh pepper and parmesan take this simple potato bake into a whole new realm. I like to serve it with a radicchio salad to provide a fresh contrast to the richness of the bake. This recipe is nut and egg free.

Vegetarian polpette bake

Apparently we love a bake! Vegetarian, gluten and grain free polpette are baked into an easy sauce for a delicious midweek dinner. This recipe contains eggs, nuts and dairy.

Spanakopita tart

All the flavours of the classic spanakopita in an easy, gum free yoghurt pastry. This tart is equally at home at a picnic as it is in a lunchbox.

Vegetarian mince stuffed capsicums

One of my personal favourite ways to make a complete dinner out of tofu mince. These stuffed capsicums can be flavoured any way you like, and make for excellent leftovers. This recipe is nut free, egg free and dairy free/vegan adaptable.

Vegetarian enchiladas

Making a big enchilada bake is such a good Sunday activity. Not only is Sunday night dinner popping, but you have leftovers to start the week. This bake is protein packed, big on flavour and a crowd favourite. It is nut free, egg free and easily adapted to be vegan.

Hamburger helper

Ok, but is there anything better than mac and cheese combined with hearty mince? I think not. This vegetarian dish is full on comfort food without any nuts of eggs.

I LOVE this vegetarian lasagne recipe. It packs a total punch without any meat, nuts or eggs. With a vegan bechamel, it is easily made vegan too.

Vegetarian shakshuka

Not generally known for being FODMAP friendly, my take on the delicacy contains no onion or garlic. It is filling, easy and delicious, and contains no nuts.

The shakshuka is topped with herbs and runny yolks, and two hands secure the skillet and hold a piece of bread down the bottom of the image. The skillet is set on a mottled rusted backdrop.
