Bean tacos

If you are still on the elimination phase of the low FODMAP diet I would recommend dividing the recipe by 5. If you have undertaken reintroduction you can increase the portion size to your own tolerance.

As beans become high in the FODMAP GOS (galactooligosaccharide) it is important that you watch your portion size. You can still enjoy beans in the right quantities even during the elimination phase.

You can either have these tacos as a starter to your meal, or make different taco fillings such as chicken and fish for a more exciting taco night.
