Low FODMAP String Bean Soup with Truffle Oil has been adapted from Thomas Keller, the world renowned chef and restaurateur. Many of you are probably familiar with his Napa Valley restaurant French Laundry in Yountville, California. Among many recognitions, French Laundry and Keller’s NY-based Per Se have been award three stars by the Michelin Guide.
In this variation of Keller’s soup, we are using string beans instead of high FODMAP sugar snap peas. Make sure you are NOT using peas in shells. About 12 string beans per serving has been classified as low FODMAP by Monash University. However, if you have high sensitivity to string beans, it might be best to skip this one altogether.
Cooking Low FODMAP String Bean Soup with Truffle Oil
Don’t be alarmed by the large amount of sugar and salt in the recipe — most of it will be discarded with the water which boils the string beans. By the same token, use plain table salt in the boiling water…no need to waste fancy Himalayan sea salt!
Be sure to “shock” the string beans with ice water. This will help the soup maintain the bright appetizing green color, instead of pea-brown.
Use the homemade low-FODMAP Vegetable Stock in the Sauces & Others section.
Finally, use a truffle oil without garlic pieces or powder in it, like the Roland Black Truffle Oil, 3.4-Ounce Bottle.
