Dr. Rachel’s Tips for the Low-FODMAP Vegan, Low-FODMAP Vegan Food Lists & Low-FODMAP Vegan Stock Recipe
August 17, 2017Printer Friendly Version
Adapting to a low-FODMAP, IBS-friendly diet while vegan or vegetarian may sound next to impossible at first. But luckily, many of the choices that you enjoyed before are still safe to eat. Numerous fruits and vegetables are fine to consume on the low-FODMAP diet and can provide great sources of protein and nutrients. Kale, for one is amazing: 1 cup contains 3 g protein, 2.6 g fiber and only 33 calories! See my list of vegan protein sources below…
For a handy low-FODMAP Vegan Stock Recipe scroll to the end of this blog, or you can try our low-FODMAP Happy Soup for a ready-made low-FODMAP broth powder.
Don’t forget that all 6 flavors of Happy Bars are vegan and gluten-free!

Can you tell me how do you use the powder once it’s mixed? How do you use it?
Hello, Can you tell me how do you use the powder once it’s mixed? Not sure how to use it?
Thanks for the question!
As is stated in the serving size information:
“1 tsp makes 1 cup of stock when mixed with hot/boiling water”.
You simply mix the powder with your desired amount of water and enjoy either from a mug, or in a recipe.
We will add it to the blog later on to help make it simpler.
Hope you enjoy the stock mix 🙂
I have read everywhere that 1 cup chopped kale is low fodmap. Is this 1 cup of raw kale? Because 1 cup of raw kale makes about 1 tablespoon of cooked kale, which is not very much. Please explain.
Thanks for your great recipes!
This ‘kale’ amount refers to fresh, chopped kale. If it makes it easier to figure out a safe amount, then you can always look at the weighed quantity. For kale, a safe amount is 75 grams. We strongly suggest buying a little kitchen scale (invaluable for low-FODMAP lifestyle), and downloading the Monash Uni App. Check out our free low-FODMAP Guide for other helpful tips!
Best of luck 🙂
Kale is free. You can eat absolutely as much as you would like.
Thank you for this reply 🙂
You are correct! Since that earlier comment was posted a year ago, the MONASH app has changed their information to include the data that ‘only trace FODMAPs are found in kale’. You should enjoy this per your tolerance (although it does not contain FODMAPs, some people with IBS may find too much kale to be a gut irritant). Have a great day!!
How long is this good to keep once you blend it all together?
Thanks, love your recipes!!
Hi IBS Fiend!
Since spices tend to be shelf stable for years, we suggest that this should be good for the length of time that your nutritional yeast is. Look at that expiration date and plan accordingly, storing in an airtight container, of course 🙂
