Chickpeas are restricted on a Low FODMAP diet, but we can have small amount of the tinned ones. Hummus is always easy to do, and here in this Low FODMAP roasted red pepper hummus it was enriched with a very versatile Low FODMAP vegetable. I thought that it was a good idea, because it gives a good flavour and makes a bit bigger quantity of hummus. Otherwise you would feel like you just had a small amount. Also, a dietitian recommends to have only 1 portion at any one time of this hummus.
Below, a Low FODMAP roasted red pepper hummus is served with a mix of cut vegetables, including a wonderful rainbow carrot. It is better to use it raw, because it has a very strong beetroot colour on the outside that not everybody might like in a for example soup.
