Many consider garlic cloves (and parmesan, for that matter) a staple in any pesto recipe. I beg to differ. This Low Fodmap Pesto recipe doesn’t contain either of those ingredients, but I think it is just as flavorful! With that said, I do add a hint of low fodmap garlic flavor using fresh chives and garlic-infused olive oil. So, it isn’t completely garlic free, but it is all kinds of (low fodmap) yummy! 🙂

I like to toss with brown rice pasta or zoodles (zucchini noodles) for a quick and tasty side dish. It’s also delicious spooned over grilled chicken, spread onto sandwiches or used as a low fodmap pizza sauce!

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)! :)

    1. Hi Rob, Thanks for the question! FODMAPs are not oil-soluble (they do not dissolve in oil). Most garlic-flavored oils should be tolerated on the low FODMAP diet. Even oils with garlic pieces still in the bottle should be tolerated, as long as the garlic pieces are not consumed. If you’d like to take the guesswork out of it, FODY foods makes a Monash-certified low FODMAP garlic infused oil. Hope that helps!
