Rice Cakes with Low FODMAP Chive Dip & Smoked Chicken
Looking for a tasty low FODMAP snack or light lunch? Rice cakes are a versatile low FODMAP food. I love making chive dip for the rice cakes and then adding extra toppings like spinach, tomato, smoked chicken and a little salt and pepper. If you can tolerate low FODMAP dairy then try using cottage cheese instead of mayonnaise in the chive dip.
Note on rice cakes: Rice cakes are a good low FODMAP snack but you need to watch your portion size. Rice cakes are low FODMAP at a serving size of 2 cakes but they become high FODMAP at a serving size of 4 cakes.
Make sure the mayonnaise and plain smoked chicken breast do not contain onion, garlic or other high FODMAP ingredients.
Garlic infused oil is found in the oil section of your local supermarket.
Make sure the mayonnaise, dried chives, rice cake, and plain smoked chicken breast are gluten free.
Unless you have coeliac disease, then you do not need to worry about being trace gluten free while on the low FODMAP diet. Gluten is not a FODMAP and small amounts of wheat are low FODMAP.
Make sure your mayonnaise is dairy free. Avoiding dairy in these products will help you reduce your lactose intake if you are on the low FODMAP diet.
Nutrition Per Serve (with Cottage Cheese):
Nutrition Per Serve (with Mayonnaise):
1. Make the chive dip by mixing together the garlic infused oil, chives and mayonnaise (or cottage cheese).
2. Slice the smoked chicken, dice the tomato and roughly chop the baby spinach.
3. Spread the dip onto the rice cakes and then add layers of baby spinach, smoked chicken, and diced tomato. Season with salt & pepper.
Prep in Advance: You can pre-cut the smoked chicken, tomato, and baby spinach and place in a small bag. Pre-make the chive dip and store in a small container. Store the rice cake toppings in the fridge. Then you can just assemble your lunch at work when you are ready.
