- To serve, line a bowl with fresh spinach leaves, then ladle the soup over the spinach leaves (the leaves will wilt slightly from the heat). Garnish with cilantro, green onion, and a squeeze of lime juice.
we recommend Thai Kitchen brand fish sauce. If you purchase another brand, make sure that it is not ‘seasoned.’ Feel free to replace bone broth with equal amounts of water or low FODMAP broth. Please see our Shredded Chicken recipe to make the shredded chicken for this recipe. You may omit the honey. Feel free to adjust the red chili powder to taste. If you don’t like heat, you may omit this. For more garlic flavor, add 1-2 small pinches of Gluten Free Asafoetida. Sauté 2-3 minutes, until you smell garlic and onion aroma. Then add the chicken. Honey contains fructose. Northern latitude honey (clover, raspberry, alfalfa) contain a closer ratio of fructose to glucose than tropical honey (like the honey that Monash University tested and noted as a high fodmap food). Since northern latitude honey contains a closer ratio of fructose to glucose, this improves fructose absorption and we find that many people with fructose intolerance can enjoy a small amount of northern latitude honey. Please try this and see how you do (easy enough to test out in tea, like Rooibos tea). Guest Guru Patsy Catsos recommends to her patients and readers, to not include honey. If you were referred to GutRxGurus by Patsy, please omit honey from this recipe. We're happy to make a suitable substitution suggestion. Feel free to post a question in the forum!
