Low FODMAP broccoli soup
I created this recipe because I wanted to create a low FODMAP version of the classic Dutch split pea soup with smoked sausage. At first I thought that this would be impossible because split peas are not low FODMAP and making a pea soup without peas is a bit crazy. But when I went and googled “split pea soup without peas” (in Dutch), I found the concept of low carb split pea soup. Pea soup without peas. That quickly convinced me that I could make something that tasted like pea soup without peas! The result was a low FODMAP broccoli soup with celeriac.
Low FODMAP broccoli soup with celeriac
The low FODMAP and low carb version of split pea soup is made without peas and with a lot of low FODMAP vegetables. Therefore, it is a lot lower in carbs and actually, you can just call it a vegetable soup. In my soup, I used broccoli, celeriac, carrot and the green parts of leek and spring onion. Broccoli and celeriac both are limited low FODMAP. Broccoli contains a higher amount of fructans in larger servings and celeriac contains mannitol. But if you stick to the serving sizes in this recipe, 1/4th of the whole recipe is a serving, you will stay within the safe amounts.
The result is a filling vegetable soup. I highly believe that texture, colour and the looks of food can impact how you experience the taste. And because this thick green soup with pieces of smoked sausage in it looks like the traditional Dutch split pea soup and has a similar structure, it really tastes like it to me. Even if you don’t know Dutch split pea soup, this is a delicious warming winter soup, that you should try!
Dutch split pea soup is always served with a smoked sausage, called “rookworst” in Dutch and sometimes we also add bits of fried bacon. If you want a vegan soup, you can leave the smoked sausage out.
I am very curious what you will think about this low FODMAP broccoli soup with celeriac!

- Peel the celeriac and cut into cubes. Shop the green part of the leeks. Cut the carrot into cubes and the broccoli into florets.
- Put all vegetables, the celeriac and the bay leaves in a pan and pour the stock on top.
- Leave to boil until the vegetables are soft (about 15 minutes) and remove the bay leaves. Blend the soup with an immersion blender until smooth. Season with pepper and salt.
- Cut the smoked sausage into pieces and add to the soup. Leave the soup to simmer for half an hour on low heat.
- If you want to add bacon: bake it in a separate pan and add to the soup when you serve it.
*If you cannot find a similar smoked sausage that is low FODMAP, you can also leave this out.
