Normally, I am thinking about which recipes to publish on my blog long before a holiday arrives. But this week, I suddenly realised that it is Kingsday next week and that I didn’t think of a recipe to share yet. Kingsday is a national holiday in the Netherlands where we celebrate the birthday of our King. Traditionally everything is orange on this day. Last year, I already shared the ultimate Kingsday recipe with you, the Dutch tompouce, but I did want to make a recipe with an orange vibe for this year too. And that recipe is this low FODMAP carrot cake banana bread!
In the Netherlands, this is probably the most served party snack ever: tortilla roll-ups filled with smoked salmon and cream cheese. You can serve them however you like, tortillas filled with smoked chicken and cream cheese are very popular too. It is super simple to make and everybody loves it, so with this snack, you will always do well at a party. I didn’t eat them for a very long time because the tortillas are never low FODMAP. But that is going to change now because I have a recipe for low FODMAP tortilla roll-ups with salmon and cream cheese!
Of course, you can fill the tortillas with whatever you prefer and the tortillas are also great to have for lunch or to use in a Mexican recipe for dinner.
I have had this several times in the past year: I suddenly start to love things that I didn’t like to eat before and then I have a period where I eat it all the time. Right now, I am in a tofu phase. The first times that I tried tofu, I didn’t manage to marinate it well and I didn’t like it at all. But some time ago, I visited Veggieworld in the Netherlands (this was an event for people who are interested in eating fewer animal products) and I ate the most delicious tofu there. Because of that, I decided to try it again myself. A few weeks ago, I shared a recipe for scrambled tofu with you and today I have a recipe for a delicious low FODMAP tofu fried rice. It was the best fried rice I ate in a long time, so it is worth a try!
I have been thinking a lot about what to serve for Easter brunch and I came up with low FODMAP raisin buns. In the Netherlands, raisin buns are eaten a lot and I love to eat them with butter or with cheese. Raisins are only low FODMAP up to a limited amount, 13 g of raisins is low FODMAP and because of that, I made small raisin buns. One bun per serving is low FODMAP. I think this size is perfect for Easter brunch because you will have enough space left in your stomach to try all the other yummy foods.
For my birthday, I was looking for cakes that I could easily take with me to work. No birthday celebration without homemade cakes if you ask me, but taking two cakes with you on a bike is not that easy. Therefore I decided to make two cakes with frosting. The recipe I am sharing with you today and this lemon cake. Rectangular cakes in a cake tin are a lot easier to take with you and the frosting stays in place better. I used the recipe for my carrot cake and turned it into a rectangular cake. The recipe is more or less the same, but I still wanted to share this variation with you: my low FODMAP carrot cake with cream cheese frosting! Carrot cake will always be one of my favourite cakes, the combination of the cake with the creamy frosting is just perfect.
This is so tasty! If a restaurant has a sandwich with poached egg and salmon on the menu and they have low FODMAP bread, I always order it. The combination of poached egg and smoked salmon is just amazing. Especially when there is also some avocado on the sandwich (1/8 avocado is low FODMAP, so a thin spread of avocado on a sandwich is safe to eat). Last weekend, I finally made a low FODMAP poached egg sandwich with smoked salmon at home. A perfect Easter recipe!
