My go-to formula for creating a quick meal is protein + starchy veggie + green veggie. For example, I recently made a quick meal of broiled chicken breast, a microwaved “baked” potato and these Low FODMAP Lemon Green Beans. The entire meal took about 20 minutes, was filling and tasted great! Win! Win! Win!

This recipe is filled with refreshing flavor thanks to fresh lemon juice and zest. Toasted pine nuts add a touch of nutty crunch. And although you can certainly cook them longer if you’d like, I like to just barely cook my green beans for even more crunch!

Ingredients
  • ¼ cup pine nuts
  • 1 ½ lb. green beans, washed and trimmed
  • 2 Tbsp. garlic-infused olive oil
  • 1 tsp. lemon zest
  • Juice of ½ a lemon
  • Salt & pepper, to taste
Instructions
  1. Place pine nuts in a dry skillet (no oil!). Cook over medium-low heat, stirring frequently until nuts start to turn golden brown, about 3-5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, lemon zest, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Set aside.
  3. Once the pot of water is boiling, add green beans and cook for 2-4 minutes until just tender-crisp. Drain green beans under cool, running water to prevent further cooking. Shake dry before transferring to a large bowl. Toss with dressing and top with toasted pine nuts. Enjoy!
Notes
Pine Nuts: Monash's recommended low fodmap serving is 1 Tbsp.

I love olives, bacon and puppies (in no particular order) and hate feeling like crap because of certain foods. By day, I help people as a supermarket dietitian. By night, I create easy and fun, low fodmap recipes for you (and me)! :)
