I am very happy to be able to share the recipe for these Low Fodmap Satay Pork Meatballs! The reason is simple: it is an amazing dish.
Since going Low Fodmap, I have been craving Asian food. I miss Indian curries so much (I still need to work on adapting my favourite ones for the Low Fodmap diet and it’s not easy), however, I found out that Thai food can be adapted much more easily.
I have always loved Satay, so I immediately started experimenting with it. The majority of the recipes I found online had coconut milk or coconut cream among the ingredients of the Satay sauce. I don’t always digest coconut properly (this may not be just a Fodmap issue though), so came up with a coconut-free recipe and let me tell you that you won’t be able to tell the difference! Also, this way you save on some extra calories.
The recipe I am sharing today is so good that it made it into my menu rotation and I make it at least once every 2 weeks. It also helps that it is very easy and quick to make it.
If you like Satay and are not obliged to eat Low Fodmap, check out this recipe and this recipe.
