Tzatziki – low fodmap

Over 2000 years ago Socrates stated “All disease begins in the gut”. Clearly not – but most symptoms of IBS start in the gut and having a dip made with lactose free Greek yoghurt will help keep it calm and symptom free if you have lactose intolerance! Tzatziki is so refreshing and great for long hot summer days and a suitable accompaniment to barbecue meats and fish. So make this easy recipe and enjoy! You could also make this dish suitable for a low fibre diet (if your dietitian has advised it) by peeling and removing the seeds from the cucumber before preparing the dip.

Ingredients

150 g Lactose free Greek yogurt (I purchased it from Tesco)

1/2 cucumber

1 tablespoon lemon juice

seasoning

 Method

Cut the cucumber in half and grate one half

Squeeze out all the juice

Chop the other half of cucumber into small cubes

Squeeze a lemon and add a tablespoon of juice to the yoghurt

Then add the cucumber and mix well

Serves 2 as a starter or dip with gluten free Pitta bread.

  1. […] Serve with feta cheese, a drizzle of olive oil, thyme and a tablespoon of pomegranate seeds per serving – if you are following a fodmap modified diet and can tolerate GOS (galacto-oligosaccharides) you could a tablespoon of hummus to each flatbread. If not you can use my recipe for Tzatziki and turn this into a Greek dish here https://clinicalalimentary.blog/2017/08/08/tzatziki-low-fodmap/ […]
