Low FODMAP risotto all’Amarone
In winter there is nothing I like better than a risotto. Risotto is such a delicious comfort food recipe. Perfect for a cold winter day.
Today I want to share a classic from the Verona region of Italy. A low FODMAP variant of the risotto all’Amarone. In Verona, this is one of thé dishes to order in a restaurant.
I am a fan of Italian dishes, especially those with few ingredients (often the tastiest). So I enjoy making a low FODMAP version of these types of recipes.
In a restaurant a risotto will often be made with onion, I make a version without onion to make the dish low FODMAP. And I use spring onions for garnish instead.
Risotto all’Amarone is a very simple risotto traditionally made with Vialone Nano rice and Amarone wine.
Unfortunately, I couldn’t find the rice here, but I could find the wine. So I make the risotto with the Amarone wine and also with “normal” risotto rice.
And of course, parmesan cheese and a spoonful of butter to make the risotto extra smooth and tasty.
I also add some oyster mushrooms to the risotto for a bit of vegetables. This is not part of the traditional recipe, so you can also omit it and serve the risotto with a nice green salad instead.
You can of course serve this risotto with a delicious glass of Amarone.
A glass of red wine per portion is low FODMAP. Because you are already using the wine in the dish, take a small glass.
Because you cook the wine in the risotto, a large part of the wine and alcohol will have evaporated during cooking (about 60%).
But because there is still some in the dish, I would advise not to take too much red wine with the dish.
Otherwise, you may get complaints from this. If you are still in the elimination phase or you know you are reacting to fructose, I would advise being careful with this.
If you know that fructose is not a problem for you, then this is of course not necessary.Print
