When I think about Thanksgiving foods the first three to come to mind are the turkey, stuffing and cranberry sauce. I thought I hated cranberry sauce growing up because I had only had the canned version. Don’t get me wrong, I know people who prefer the canned version over the real deal any day but I definitely don’t fit into that category. This super easy to make low FODMAP side dish takes less than 20 minutes to make with only a few ingredients. What’s better than that?! Be cautious while on the FODMAP diet to start with 1 tablespoon cranberry sauce and move up to 2 tablespoons if you handle the fructans okay. No one has time to not feel well the day after Thanksgiving. Am I right??!?
What are you planning on making for Thanksgiving this year? I would love to hear!Print
A homemade cranberry sauce recipe that takes less than 20 minutes!
- 1 – 10 oz bag of frozen cranberries
- 1/4 cup raw sugar
- 2 clementines or 1 orange, juiced and zested
- In a medium-sized saucepan, add all of the ingredients and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until cranberries begin to burst and thicken into a sauce.
It is important to note to watch your portion size of cranberry sauce. One to two tablespoons should be safe on the FODMAP diet but start small and see how you react.
