Elephant’s Delicatessen is a great Deli here in Portland. I adapted their Orange Tomato Soup recipe to be SIBO friendly. This recipe is fast, easy, and doesn’t create a lot of dishes!
Here is the original recipe from Elephant’s
SIBO (and other) Modifications
- Sub onion with one bunch of green onions (green part only)
- No cream
- I only used 1/4 cup of butter (1/2 a stick) you could totally use less too
- These are my favorite (and SIBO friendly) canned tomatoes, Bionaturae
- I used Cara Cara oranges for the fresh juice, get it!
mmmmm hmmmm. This is yummy. Pictured above over a bed of swiss chard and kale, plus a little avocado.
I miss eating curry. Often times Thai other Asian restaurants have a lot of garlic in their curries and may use coconut milk that has guar gums or preservatives that are not SIBO friendly. So I made my own.

- No Tamarind pulp
- Sub honey for sugar (1:1 ratio)
- Sub 3 bunches of green onion (green part only) for shallots
- No garlic
- I used 8 dried chillies and through in some seeds
- Aroy D Coconut milk or Make your own!
Notes: Because you are using green onion instead of shallot the spice paste is more like a pesto consistency. When I used the food processor I added a little water to make sure it didn’t get stuck.
Enjoy! And let me know how it comes out!
I love recipes that make great left overs. This is one of them! Delicious warm or cold and full of flavor.
I used Ottolenghi’s Jerusalem cookbook, but the link below is pretty much the exact same recipe. Not gonna lie, it’s a little involved, but well worth it. Enjoy!
Here is the recipe from Food & Wine.
- Sub 2 bunches of green onion (green part only) for onion
- Sub honey for sugar (1:1 substitution ratio
- Strict SIBO – no Tamarind, sub vinegar and a little honey
A note about Tamarind: I’m not sure of the FODMAP breakdown of tamarind paste or powder, so my general rule is if I don’t know I don’t use it. However, in this particular case (because it was a special occasion), I used a little tamarind powder (1/2 teaspoon) with a little white vinegar (1/2 teaspoon). I didn’t have a reaction, so that’s awesome!
This is a new journal article comparing two ways of diagnosing SIBO, glucose breath test and duodenal aspiration. Sounds like this study concluded breath test is still the way to go.
Enjoy the article abstract!
These are DELICIOUS! I have made these with a number of different meats: beef, pork and lamb. I gotta say that even people who don’t usually like lamb have liked these!
- No garlic
- Substitute onion for green onion (only green parts) and add a little extra
Lazy person modifications:
- Rather than using skewers, just make then into balls and pan fry them. My favorite way is to use salted butter and a griddle
These are great with a Tzatziki, salad or basmati rice (if you eat it).
This recipe is easy, fast and doesn’t require too many dishes. The burgers are quite delicious. I modified this recipe to be SIBO friendly from Gwyneth Paltrow’s “IT’S ALL GOOD” cookbook.
Here is the original recipe, shared on People Magazine!
- No Garlic
- Sub 6 Green Onions (green part only) for Shallots
- Use Red Boat Fish Sauce
When I first became SIBO diet strict I didn’t have any honey or cacao for at least 2 months. Slowly I introduced honey and then cacao. Both did not seem to irritate me, so I have been eating them since.
This brownie recipe is from one of my favorite cooking blogs. It is rich, flavorful and definitely satisfying for that sweet tooth!
