One pot meal - spicy lamb shank soup with vegetables and quinoa (low FODMAP, gluten free)

One pot meal – spicy lamb shank soup with vegetables and quinoa (FODMAP friendly)

Tummy friendly lamb shank soup with potato, carrot and quinoa.  To spice it up a little, I added clove, bay leaves, cumin, paprika, chili flake and black pepper.  I cooked it in a pressure cooker so it was an easy one-pot meal.

Ingredients (serves 2 as a FODMAP recipe)

  • 2 lamb shanks, trim off excess fat
  • 2 potatoes
  • 2 carrot
  • 2 common tomatoes, remove skin, diced
  • 1/3 cup quinoa (raw)
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 4 cloves
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper, cracked
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • a pinch of chili flake
  • 2 bay leaves
  • salt to taste
  • some fresh coriander and fresh chili, chopped, to garnish (optional)


Place lamb shanks, potato, carrot, tomato, bay leaves and cloves in a pressure cooker; cook on high pressure for 25 minutes.

When the pressure cooker is ready to be opened, add quinoa, cumin, black pepper, paprika, chili flake and season with salt;  cook on high pressure for further 1 minute; Turn the pressure cooker off; leave the soup in the pressure cooker to simmer for further 10 minutes before serving.

Before serving, remove some of the excess oil/fat on top of the soup if desired; garnish with chopped coriander and fresh chili (optional).
