Low FODMAP goulash soup

Goulash soup is a delicious winter recipe. Hearty, filling and super tasty. Amazing to eat on a cold day. Normally goulash soup contains quite a lot of onion, but of course, I left that out in the low FODMAP version.

You can add some of the green parts of the spring onion for an onion flavour, but I didn’t do that and I didn’t miss it at all. Often there are also potato cubes added to goulash soup. I am not a fan of that, so I left this out too.

But if you like, you can add 150 g of potato cubes to the soup at the end (when you also add the green beans).

I am very happy with this recipe for low FODMAP goulash soup, if I may say so!

Een lekkere winterse low FODMAP goulashsoep. Hartig en lekker vullend voor op een koude dag. Ook glutenvrij en lactosevrij.


  • 75 g bacon strips
  • 400 g beef stew meat
  • 1  green bell pepper*
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • ½ tsp ground paprika
  • ¼ tsp ground cumin
  • 200 ml red wine
  • 1 liter stock (make sure to use low FODMAP stock cubes)
  • 100 g green beans, in pieces
  • Pepper and salt
  • Optional: 2 tbsp lactose-free cream cheese or sour cream


  1. Cut the meat and the paprika into cubes.
  2. Fry the bacon for a few minutes in a soup pan. Add the beef stew meat and fry for a few minutes.
  3. Add the bell pepper, tomato paste, ground paprika, and ground cumin. Fry for two minutes.
  4. Add the stock and the red wine. Stir together and bring the soup to a boil. Cover and leave the soup to simmer for 2 hours.
  5. Add the green beans to the soup and boil for another 20 minutes. Season the soup with pepper and salt.
  6. Serve the goulash soup with a scoop of lactose-free cream cheese or sour cream.


*Bell pepper has been retested in 2022 and is limited low FODMAP. Red bell pepper is low FODMAP in smaller quantities than green bell pepper. Therefore I advise using green bell pepper.
