low FODMAP tortilla roll-ups - karlijnskitchen.com

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.

Low FODMAP Pita Flammkuchen (Gluten-free and lactose-free)

low fodmap pita flammkuchen - karlijnskitchen.com

A super simple recipe for flammkuchen. I made low FODMAP pita flammkuchen! Flammkuchen is a thin pizza or tarte flambée from Germany that is traditionally covered with sour cream, bacon and onion. To make this recipe very quick and easy, I used a gluten-free pita for the pizza crust. Because there is no lactose-free version of sour cream in the Netherlands, I used lactose-free cream cheese instead of sour cream and I replaced the onion with spring onion. You can make this recipe in no time and I am sure the flammkuchen will also do great as a party snack! I know for sure that I will make pita flammkuchen and pita pizza more often, it is so simple and so good!

Farinata – Italian chickpea pancake

Farinata - Italian chickpea pancake - Karlijnskitchen.com

During my holiday in Italy, I discovered farinata. An Italian pancake made from chickpea flour. A typical Italian snack that originates in Genua at the Ligurian coast. Also in the Cinque Terre, a bit more to the south, you can find it everywhere. This region is known for its focaccia’s and farinata’s and you see Foccacciaria’s and Farinateria’s in every town. The nice thing about the farinata is that this pancake is naturally gluten-free because it is made with chickpea flour. The recipe is very simple, because, next to chickpea flour, the batter only consists of olive oil and water.
