Low FODMAP Hummus

Here’s my recipe for creamy Low FODMAP Hummus, the best dip for veggies, chips, and crackers that won’t bother your IBS.

Chickpeas are high in oligosaccharides, however the process of canning them reduces this level enabling those with IBS to have them in small amounts.

Monash currently advise a maximum of 1/2 as a portion.

So, like everything that tastes good – eat in moderation!

Things to keep in mind:

  • My hummus limit is max 1/4 cup per sitting
  • Make sure to use canned chickpeas – I used Saikav chickpeas here.
  • Leave out the garlic to avoid the bloat
  • Top with Paprika and fresh herbs

Enjoy making this delicious hummus!
