Before I made a smoked mackerel stuffed eggs and I loved them (recipe here: https://fitfodmapfoodie.co.uk/2018/10/low-fodmap-stuffed-eggs-with-smoked-mackerel.html ) Today I needed a quick fix for a New Years Eve party snack and I came up with this idea for a Low FODMAP tuna stuffed eggs. It is always good to bring your own party food if you are on a special diet such as Low FODMAP. People often don’t understand why you can’t eat certain foods, even if it is just gluten free diet for some, but in case of Low FODMAP, when you start explaining that you also cannot have some dairy products, onion, garlic, many other vegetables and fruit, it is too much for other people to cope.
So just take your own party food in quantities that will be enough for yourself and to share with other people celebrating with you. I’m sure that they will like this tuna stuffed eggs as well as for example my bacon wrapped turkey rolls (recipe here https://fitfodmapfoodie.co.uk/2019/01/bacon-wrapped-turkey-rolls.html).
As you can see, I have plenty of my own spring onion that keeps on growing and I used it for a garnish in this recipe.
It is very easy to grow your own spring onion, you just place different sized onions in a pot with soil and water it every few days. That’s it. At first it looks like nothing is going to happen, but when first greens come out, it just keeps on growing. Of course, it is not and endless solution, at some point you will have to replace your onion with a new one.
