While there is low FODMAP marinara sauce available at the store (whether it be FODY or Prego Sensitive, or others), sometimes you may just want a quick do-it-yourself version. That’s why we created our super fast and easy homemade low FODMAP marinara recipe.

What You’ll Need

  • Canned whole peeled tomatoes
  • Garlic-infused olive oil
  • Dried basil
  • Dried oregano
  • Red pepper flakes
  • Salt
  • Black pepper

Variations of Low FODMAP Marinara

This is a great base recipe for marinara but you can make it your own with different herbs and spices, more pepper flakes for more spice, sugar for more sweetness, or even use it to make a meat sauce. Sauté some veggies with ground meat, then add the blended sauce ingredients.


Why Make Low FODMAP Marinara?

If you have IBS and have found that garlic and onion are a trigger food for you, then traditional marinara sauces can be a big problem! This marinara provides flavor without the digestive distress and it is so easy!

Making Ahead/Storage

This can easily be made ahead and stored for 5-6 days in the fridge or up to 6 months in the freezer in an airtight container.
