Saute potato, carrot and fennel, with coriander, turmeric, sesame oil and sesame seeds (low FODMAP, vegan, gluten free)

Stir fried potato, carrot and fennel, with coriander, turmeric, sesame oil and sesame seeds (FODMAP friendly)

A few years ago, I received a free pack of gardening fennel seeds with a random purchase. This year I finally got around to spray the seeds onto the veggie patch. To my surprise, they were seeding. Inspired, I went down to the supermarket and bought a fennel bulb to cook a meal.

It was a simple meal – I diced some potato, carrot and fennel, then saute the vegetables with a little turmeric and sesame oil. I added some fresh coriander and sesame seeds at the end. Quite satisfying as a mid-winter meal.

Ingredients

(Serves 2 as a FODMAP recipe)

  • 2 medium size potatoes, approx 300-400 g, peeled and diced ^
  • 1 medium size carrot, approx 150 g, peeled and diced ^

  • 10g coriander, sliced
  • 1 tsp toasted sesame seeds
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
  • some cooking oil
  • salt to taste
  • a little (say 1/2 tsp) sugar

Method

Cook diced potato and carrot pieces in microwave with a little water, covered, approximately 3-4 minutes; the vegetables should be just cooked (not over cooked).

Bring some cooking oil to hot temperature in a frying pan, saute the fennel briefly with a little (say 1/4 tsp) sugar; the sugar will help the fennel to brown; transfer the fennel to a plate.
