As a New Zealander now living in Europe, I miss Malaysian food for both its flavour and price. Granted this was many years ago, but we used to down bowlfuls of Mee Goreng (Malaysian stir-fried noodles) for just over a fiver – no more than a few euro. But knowing what I now know about food, I can admit that those weren’t the healthiest days of my life. And even a healthier version of Mee Goreng still contains FODMAPs such as onions, which can trigger IBS symptoms for some.
So here’s my low-FODMAP makeover, inspired by Yotam Ottolenghi’s version, that’s a lot better for both you and your gut.
