Cast iron skillet with a vegetable frittata and a fork nearby.

Experience the blend of flavor and gut-friendly nutrition with our Low-FODMAP Vegetable Frittata. Tailored for anyone navigating the challenges of IBS, this recipe embodies the essence of making dietary management enjoyable and stress-free, a key theme we explored in Gut Harmony: The IBS Guide for a Happier Gut

Drawing inspiration from the blog's advice on incorporating diverse, low-FODMAP ingredients into meals, this frittata is a vibrant example of how to bring those tips to life on your plate. 

Ingredient Insights: 

Eggs: A staple in low-FODMAP diets, eggs are protein-rich and generally well-tolerated by those with IBS, making them an excellent base for our frittata.

Unsweetened Nut Milk: We opt for nut milk as a lactose-free alternative, ensuring our recipe remains digestive-friendly without compromising on creaminess.

just better.® Prebiotic Fiber: This ingredient not only adds fiber to support gut health but does so without triggering IBS symptoms, thanks to its low-FODMAP classification.

Aged Cheddar Cheese: Aged cheeses are lower in lactose, fitting into a low-FODMAP diet more comfortably and adding depth of flavor. (You can easily skip the cheese or opt for a dairy-free version!) 

Avocado Oil: Chosen for its neutral taste and health benefits, avocado oil is a gut-friendly fat that enhances the frittata’s texture without adding digestive stress.

Red Bell Pepper, Carrots, Chives, and Baby Spinach: Selected for their low-FODMAP properties, these veggies offer nutritional benefits and vibrant colors and flavors, making the frittata both colorful and comforting.

By carefully choosing ingredients that align with low-FODMAP guidelines, this recipe supports digestive wellness while delivering on taste. It’s a testament to the idea that managing IBS mindful meal planning can be delicious and varied.

Happy Belly Vegetable Frittata 


6 Large eggs

¼ Cup unsweetened nut milk

4 Tablespoons just better.® Prebiotic Fiber

½ Cup grated hard cheese like cheddar (aged cheeses are low in lactose)

1 Tablespoon avocado oil

½ Cup diced red bell pepper

½ Cup chopped chives or green parts of spring onions (for an onion flavor without the FODMAPs)

1 Cup baby spinach

½ Cup sliced carrots (thinly sliced to ensure they cook through)

Salt and pepper to taste


Preheat Oven: Set your oven to 375° F

Ready an oven-proof skillet or prepare a baking dish for later transfer if your skillet isn't oven-proof.

Whisk together eggs, just better.® fiber, and unsweetened nut milk in a bowl

Add the grated cheese to this mixture and season with salt and pepper.

Sauté Vegetables: Warm the avocado oil in the skillet over medium heat. 

Add the diced red bell pepper and sliced carrots, cooking until they're just tender, about 5 minutes. 

Stir in the spinach and chives or spring onions until the spinach wilts.

Combine and Cook: Pour the egg mixture over the vegetables in the skillet, ensuring an even spread. 

Cook on the stovetop for 2-3 minutes until the edges start to set.

Bake: Move the skillet (or transfer to a baking dish) to the oven. 

Bake for 15-20 minutes, until the frittata is set and the top has a slight golden hue.

Cool and Serve: Let frittata cool for a few minutes before cutting into slices. Serve warm.
