Low FODMAP Cranberry Horseradish Sauce – Sweet & Tangy

I can’t get enough of cranberry sauces and thankfully my cousin Judith is like-minded. When we go to her home for Thanksgiving there are usually 4 or 5 choices – my kind of gal.

Even if you think that is overkill, I encourage you to have at least one sweet choice, and one that is more savory, like this Cranberry Horseradish Sauce.

Horseradish is Low FODMAP

Prepared horseradish should be easy to find in the refrigerator section of your supermarket. Read the label: it should just contain horseradish (which is a root vegetable), vinegar and salt. That’s it.

Horseradish is low FODMAP in portions of 42 g or 2 Australian tablespoons, according to Monash.

Cranberries Are Low FODMAP

Read more about cranberries in our Explore and Ingredient column. We love these tart berries, in sauces, cakes, scones, granola bars – you name it. If there is even a hint of cranberries working in a dish, we have tried it!

Briefly, the Monash app lists dried cranberries as low FODMAP in 1 Australian tablespoon, 15 g, portions.

Fresh cranberries are not listed on the app, however, they are discussed on their blog, where they suggest sampling and assessing for yourself.

Your own experience is the answer. Stick with our recommended portions and assess your tolerance.

Dump & Mix

“Dump & mix” is such an awkward phrase, but truly it speaks to the ease with which something can be made, such as this cranberry sauce. You literally place (dump) all the ingredients at once into a pot, stir (mix) together and cook for a very brief period of time.

In less than 10 minutes you will have a world-class condiment– that just happens to be low FODMAP.

This Low FODMAP Cranberry Horseradish Sauce is a savory and tangy addition to the more expected sweet cranberry sauce - although we think you need at least two options!
