Summer Fun: Travel and Roasting Veggies

We had such a great time in London this trip.  The weather was absolutely amazing, and we ate so many amazing meals!  We had gluten-free Peroni (which I cannot find in NYC yet – leave me comments if you’ve had it here as it is amazing!) at Z Pizza. The views at Duck and Waffle rivaled the gluten-free waffles and duck. And if you can believe it, Olley’s Fish and Chips does Monday and Tuesday where the entire restaurant is gluten free!  Quite possibly the best fish and chips I’ve ever had 🙂

When we got home from our trip, I had a few extra days off and a few parties to attend so I thought to try making my own salsa from home-roasted tomatoes.

Low-FODMAP Roasted Tomato Salsa

Roasted Tomato Salsa


2 pints cherry and / or grape tomatoes, halved

1/2 onion, cut in quarters

4 -5 garlic cloves, whole

1 – 2 jalapenos, sliced in half

1/2 bell pepper, sliced

1 tbsp. canola oil

1 – 2 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. coriander

1/2 tsp. cumin

2 – 3 tbsp. freshly squeezed lime juice


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil.

Add the tomatoes, jalapenos, onion, garlic and bell pepper to the prepared baking sheet.

Toss with the canola oil and sprinkle with salt.

Roast for 15 minutes. Flip the ingredients over and continue roasting for another 15 minutes, until charred and the tomatoes have softened. Let cool for at least 20 minutes.

Remove onion and garlic from the baking dish and discard.

Add roasted vegetables to the food processor and include spices and lime juice.  Start with 1 jalapeno and add as desired for spicy flavor.

Process until the mixture is evenly combined but still has some texture, adding salt to the mixture as needed.

Refrigerate until ready to serve.  Serve with chips, nachos, tacos or add to any meal for an extra kick.

I'd love to hear from you. Leave comments, and I'll do my best to address them all!
