gluten-free simit (turkish bagel) - karlijnskitchen.com

If you have been following me for a longer time, you might know that I am crazy about Turkey and about Turkish food. Since I studied there for 9 months in 2012, I am in love with Turkish food. If I had to name one thing that I have missed most since I eat low FODMAP, it definitely is Turkish food. Luckily there are many dishes that can be made low FODMAP, but I would love to be able to walk into a Turkish restaurant and order everything on the menu that I like without having to think about it. Simit, a Turkish ring-shaped bread that resembles a bagel, is one of those Turkish things that I love so much. In Istanbul you see street vendors selling simit on every corner. Today I share my recipe for gluten-free simit. Oh, it was so good to have this again!

Different from the normal roasted red pepper dip because it has a very unique flavour, but just as good as a party snack or as a low FODMAP sandwich topping. You should really try this!

Why gluten-free isn’t always low FODMAP and vice versa!

why gluten-free isn't always low FODMAP - karlijnskitchen.com

The low FODMAP diet is not a gluten-free diet. If you have IBS and you follow the low FODMAP diet, it doesn’t mean you don’t tolerate gluten (unless you have been tested and found that you have a gluten-intolerance or celiac disease). People often think that the low FODMAP diet is a gluten-free diet because the low FODMAP diet eliminates a lot of food from your diet that also contains gluten.
