A plate with a low FODMAP burger salad

Low FODMAP burger salad

If you have read my FIT FODMAP challenge update, you might know that I have been eating fewer carbs lately because I notice that my stomach reacts badly when I eat a lot of carbs.

A few weeks ago I made a delicious low FODMAP burger salad. Everything that you normally find on a burger in a salad instead of on a bun. It was SO tasty!

You have all the great flavours of a burger, but the meal is way lighter. And this recipe is also low budget!

A salad with a burger, melted cheese, tomatoes, pickles and bacon

You can add your favourite burger toppings. I made a bacon cheeseburger! I added a bit more than the allowed amount of avocado to my salad because I tolerate about 1/2 avocado per serving.

The recommended low FODMAP serving size of avocado is 1/8 avocado per serving.

The cost of this recipe (I bought the ingredients at Albert Heijn)

  • Lean minced meat, 500 g – €3,75
  • One head of iceberg lettuce – €1,19
  • Bacon, 300 g – €1,99
  • Tomatoes, 500 g – €1,09
  • Pickles, jar – €0,85
  • Grated cheese, 200 g – €1,49
  • Mayonnaise, tube – €0,79
  • Avocado – €1,09
  • Spices from pantry – €0

Total: €11,15
€3,06 per person

Because a lot of people will have some ingredients, such as cheese and mayonnaise, in their fridge already, this recipe is usually even a bit cheaper.
