Thai inspired noodle soup -Low FODMAP & GF

The weather is getting colder and there’s nothing like a nice warm bowl of soup to get you all warmed up! So after a long busy week at work yesterday I made this thai inspired noodle soup and ate it cuddled up next to the heater while watching telly. Being thai inspired this soup is a bit spicy, but you can adjust the amount of chilli you use to suit your tolerance.

  • 4 spring onions, green part
  • 1 birds eye red chilli, finely chopped

  1. Hi, this recipe looks great, thanks for sharing 🙂 I’ve seen a few people sying that the knorr reduced salt stock cubes are low fodmap, but just wanted to triple check since garlic and onion have a really bad effect on me. I know onion and garlic aren’t listed in the ingredients, but do you know what the “flavourings” listed contain?

    1. Yes flavourings usually can contain onion and garlic so I usually avoid any products containing flavourings in the ingredient list. In this case I contacted Knorr and asked them and they assured me that there was no onion and garlic in the Knorr reduced salt chicken granules 🙂
