We love mushrooms, particularly oyster mushrooms! They are meaty, substantial and wonderful sponges to absorb flavour. In this recipe we cook the mushrooms and aubergine with tamari which is a gluten free soy sauce. The sauce is a combination of coconut milk and tinned tomatoes which we have seasoned with some curry powder, ginger and lemon. It’s a really tasty curry.
This dish is low in FODMAP’s which stands for fermentable, oligosaccharide disaccharide, monosaccharide and polyols (we know it is a total mouthful!!) Basically it means fermentable carbohydrates. This mushroom curry is a low fodmap curry so it is low in fermentable carbohydrates so really good for anyone with a sensitive gut or tummy. Some of the main high fodmap foods that can cause bloating or irritation are garlic, onion and beans/lentils. Fodmap’s are super important and great for your health but for some people with sensitive guts reducing high fodmap foods for a period of time can help them to not feel bloated or irritated.
