Looking for a little Asian flavor while still following a low FODMAP diet? We have you covered with this tasty low FODMAP tofu recipe! While this is not an authentic Asian recipe, we have been able to incorporate some common flavors used in Asian cuisine.

A lot of Asian dishes are cooked and seasoned with soy sauce, fish sauce, ginger, tofu, and sesame seeds, all of which this dish has! This is a flavorful and balanced recipe you can enjoy any night of the week. The tofu gives you protein, the zucchini are your vegetables, and the rice is (of course) your carbohydrate source.

You can add as much or as little Sriracha as you want, depending on how spicy you like your food.
