Why is this so Good?

What’s not to love about miso soup?

Made from fermented bean curds, miso paste is great for your gut and can even be enjoyed on whilst following a Low FODMAP diet.

Brown rice noodles make an excellent gluten-free alternative to traditional soba noodles (which are typically made from a combination of buckwheat and wheat) and the use of ginger, green shallots and chilli give this soup  a delicate spice with plenty of fragrance.

Make sure you choose gluten free soy sauce and remove the whole garlic pieces to keep this meal low FODMAP.

If you have no difficulty digesting fermentable carbohydrates, we suggest throwing in some thinly sliced mushrooms.

Firm tofu would also make a perfect alternate to eggs for the vegan low FODMAP-ers out there.
