*If you are using store-bought garlic-infused olive oil, make sure there are no floating bits of garlic in it. You can also make Garlic Infused olive oil at home by frying garlic cloves in the olive oil until they are golden and fragrant. Then remove them from the oil and continue cooking your meal.
*Use only the green parts of the Scallions (spring onions), as only they are low FODMAP.
*As a general rule always read the labels of the ingredients that you use as there can be sneaky FODMAP’s in any product. The best place to find all the info on which foods are high in FODMAP’s is Monash Unversity FODMAP Diet App
