Ginger Balsamic Pork Fillet -Low FODMAP, Gluten and Dairy free



Hi it's Jo from An Easy Gluten Free Life here and I think this is possibly the easiest recipe I've ever posted! You simply glaze the pork, roast it and boil up some Quinoa/Buckwheat (adding a few raw goodies along the way of course). I would definitely recommend red or tricolour Quinoa for this recipe as it adds more flavour, but regular Quinoa will also work. 


This recipe is low FODMAP, gluten and dairy free so it's great if you are struggling with IBS and aren't sure what causes it, or have multiple allergies. Just make double sure the balsamic vinegar you buy doesn't have sugar added as this would make it high in FODMAP's.  It's also reduced carbs and can easily be tailored to work with a Keto/ Low carb diet - just add more pork, veg and seeds. Enjoy!
