If you’ve been trying out the Low Fodmap diet you know that garlic and onions are a no-no as they can cause unwanted IBS symptoms. They are HIGH in FODMAPs – fructans being the issue. You can sauté garlic or onions in oil for a few minutes in a pan by themselves, but you do need to remove the garlic or onion before you continue cooking. Since everyone who experiences digestive issues differently, this method works for some and not others.
One of the easier methods to getting the taste of garlic is to use garlic-infused oil. It’s delicious and much easier than cutting up garlic and getting the smell all over your fingers – however, I will be truthful here, I grew up with most dishes being full of garlic! My Mother Rita especially loved when we’d go to a restaurant called Emilio’s in Commack New York and there’d be whole cloves of garlic in her linguini with clam sauce…the memories are the best.
