A savory soup filled with sausage, cream, potatoes, and just the right amount of spices. Our allergy friendly variations allow you to enjoy this recipe with any substitution you might need to enjoy this recipe not only low FODMAP but also gluten free and dairy free without sacrificing the taste of the restaurant style you know and love.
Frequently Asked Questions Regarding Substitutions
The recipe is already gluten free, so no substitutions are needed.
A good dairy free whipping cream is needed. We do not recommend using dairy free milk or coconut milk. In order to mimic the addition of cream in the original recipe, you'll want to invest in a good dairy free whipping cream. (Available at most retailers and health food stores).
If you omit the onion and garlic and substitute dairy free creamer for the cream then this recipe is considered FODMAP friendly. I've had great luck substituting Garlic Scape powder and green onions in the recipe in place of the yellow onion and garlic. It tastes almost identical to the original recipe.
