Potato and Carrot Soup

Are you looking for a soup that you can eat if following a FODMAPs diet? 
Then here is one I created the other night. 


1 large white washed potato
1 large Desiree potato
2 large carrots
3 cups water
3 Chicken Stock cubes 
(Gluten Free, Lactose Free, Onion and Garlic Free)*
2 bay leaves, dried
Salt & pepper for seasoning
Parsley, finely chopped 
Chives, finely chopped

Additional Ingredients: You might like to add leek leaves (the green part only), fresh thyme or bacon finely diced and sauteed for a different flavour.


  1. Peel and roughly chop the potatoes and carrots.
  2. Place the potatoes, carrots, water, chicken stock cubes, bay leaves, salt and pepper into a medium saucepan over a high heat.
  3. Bring to boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer. Stir occasionally. Cook until the potatoes are soft.
  4. Remove from heat. Take out the bay leaves. Blend or process the soup until smooth.
  5. Serve soup into serving bowls, then add a small amount of parsley and chives on top of the soup as a garnish.
Serves: 3 

* Chicken Stock. It can be very hard to find a gluten free stock that is also onion and garlic free. I have used the Massel GF Chicken Style stock cubes. They are also lactose free.
