My favourite part about Christmas is Boxing Day. Controversial I know, but I LOVE leftovers and all things cheese boards. To give you a helping hand this year, we have made a list of our top 5 leftover ideas, ensuring that these are all Low FODMAP – taking the worry out of the Christmas season.
Cooking Low FODMAP doesn’t have to be any less delicious, believe me! With the help of the amazing Cook & Author Emma Hatcher (www.shecanteatwhat.com) we have so many recipes that you can cook up during Christmas & New Year!
1. Classic Turkey Curry
What is better than the classic Turkey Curry? Here at Bay’s Kitchen, curry is definitely one of our most popular dishes & we have plenty of curry sauces varying in spice levels so that you can pick your favourite to add in the leftover Turkey. We have tweaked a recipe created by Cook & Author Emma Hatcher (www.shecanteatwhat.com) to make an easy Low FODMAP Turkey Curry. Choose between our Mild Korma, Tikka Masala & Jalfrezi sauces depending on how you handle spice, or you can give it a Thai twist with our Thai Massaman or Thai Green Curry sauces!
2. Bubble & Squeak
It’s such a shame that this usually includes a lot of high FODMAP ingredients like onion! But, now you can create an incredible Low FODMAP version by following Becky Excell’s brilliant recipe. She even tops the Bubble & Squeak with gluten free breadcrumbs to make it even more delicious! Click here for the full recipe.
3. Cold Meat Platter
Now this is where you can have fun & make something that looks incredible. Think all things charcuterie board! Really there is no set recipe to follow on this one, just let your imagination run wild. But here’s what I would put on mine:
- Cold turkey
- Bay’s Kitchen Red Pepper Chutney
- Bay’s Kitchen Spicy Tomato Salsa
- Pigs in blankets (if you have any left)
- Gluten-free breadsticks
- Warm gluten-free bread
- Cheese (all the cheese – I would choose Cheddar, Camembert & Brie)
- Gluten-free crackers
- Cherry tomatoes
- Cold ham
- Salami (check ingredients to make sure there is no onion or garlic used)
- Nuts & more…
Please check all ingredients & quantities of ingredients that you include in your Cold Meat Platter on the Monash App to ensure that they are all Low FODMAP. Grab all your foody goodies and start arranging, the more beautiful & colourful the better. Here are some images for layout inspiration:
4. Turkey Pie
There is nothing more festive than a delicious Christmas Pie & recently Cook & Author Emma Hatcher (www.shecanteatwhat) created an amazing Low FODMAP & Gluten Free Chicken, Chestnut & Spinach Pie. This recipe is perfect to tweak for our Christmas leftovers pie by swapping out the Chicken for our Turkey. Click here for the full recipe – simply leave out the Chicken & add in the leftover cooked turkey when you add in the spinach.
5. Turkey Pasta Bake
Once again Emma Hatcher has created the perfect base recipe for this one! I absolutely love a pasta bake & it is ultimate comfort food for me.
We at Bay’s Kitchen hope that you have a fantastic Christmas & that these Low FODMAP leftover ideas will help to give you some dish inspiration to make the festive season a little easier & worry-free. Remember that we have plenty more recipes too in case you ever need a helping hand to keep the Low FODMAP Diet fun & delicious. We can’t wait to bring you even more tasty recipes in 2022.
