I am so excited about this recipe!

Prior to this revelation on Saturday I had been without sesame prawn toast for 4 years. Prawn toast from Chinese takeaways is an obvious banned food namely for the wheat bread, but secondly for the garlic often in the prawn filling, both of which are high FODMAP.

But my version uses Tesco own brand free from bread, which contains no hidden FODMAPs and no gluten, wheat or dairy and a low FODMAP homemade prawn paste for the filling.

When choosing your gluten-free, low FODMAP bread look out for hidden FODMAPs such as concentrated fruit juice, garlic, onion, honey, apple fibre, inulin, chicory root, chicory root extract, and chicory root fibre to name a few!

I hope you enjoy this recipe, what’s more, it is not that bad for you if you opt for my lower fat option and fry the bread in fry light spray rather than traditional oils.
