Chili was my staple comfort food before the FODMAP curse struck me, so I’ve come up with Low FODMAP Turkey Chili with Okra. Since we can’t use beans, I wanted to replace them with something you could sink your teeth in. After numerous experiments, I was delighted with the texture of chewing into the okra bits as well as the consistency it added to the base (Monash University’s recommended guideline is up to 6 okras per serving). If you can’t stand okra, you could skip it but I urge you to give it a go! You can also substitute the turkey with ground beef or lamb.
This is another dish on the spicier side. If you are a Fodmapper who is generally not bothered by spices, but simply intolerant of the high FODMAP ingredients which accompany them (like garlic and onion), this is probably worth a shot. Feel free to modify the chili powder and paprika to lessen the heat.
Here are my favorite brand of key ingredients:
Korean Red Chili Flakes, Gochugaru (1 Lb) By Tae-kyung, which is just chili flakes. Many common chili powders like McCormick’s contain garlic powder.
Muir Glen Organic Crushed Tomato with Basil, 28-Ounce Cans (Pack of 12) (I buy it by the case)
Baja Precious – Glorious Garlic Infused Extra Virgin Olive Oil (750ml Bottle)
