Low-FODMAP Hearty Hamburger Soup; Gluten-free, Dairy-free

Print Friendly Version

Low-FODMAP.  Hamburger Soup.  30 minutes. One Pot.

You heard that right!

This is a quick, delicious and hearty recipe for low-FODMAP Hamburger Soup.  It warms you up from the inside out.  Make it dairy-free, or serve it with some grated cheese over top.  It is also gluten-free!

Low-FODMAP Hamburger Soup is great with a crusty low-FODMAP Bread, or low-FODMAP, GF Crackers.  If you tolerate gluten, then many white wheat sourdough breads are also low in FODMAPs (check if they have been fermented overnight as this reduces the fructans in the wheat).

This low-FODMAP Hamburger Soup recipe can be modified for other types of meat (chicken, turkey or pork) if you like!

    1. Hi Kevin,
      We are so happy to hear this! Thank you for sharing your review and please stay in touch!!

    1. Thanks for the question! You certainly could easily freeze this soup, but the potatoes will change their texture with reheating. We tend to prefer the fresher version. Just be aware they will get mushy. Good luck!
