Quick and Easy Low FODMAP BLT Rolls

Hi everyone! Time for a quick lunch or light dinner. Fructose malabsorption can be tough because every meal really needs to be thought out. It’s hard to just “wing it.”  I utilized a few leftovers with this quick meal. I have made a bunch of different kinds of spring rolls in the past, and I sort of forgot about them until cleaning out my pantry in a panic for dinner one evening. I found a neglected container of rice papers and that inspired me to make these low FODMAP BLT rolls. Again, this is really pretty easy – the toughest thing may be working with the sticky rice paper wrappers.

To make low FODMAP BLT rolls you’ll need; rice paper wrappers, left over cooked thin rice noodles, vegan mayonnaise, shredded lettuce, and a few leftover pieces of cooked bacon, and ideally chopped tomatoes, which I omitted because my kids don’t eat raw tomato.

I mixed the noodles with a tablespoon or so of vegan mayonnaise.

And I shredded a cup of lettuce. If my kids ate raw tomato, I would have used that too. And it would have made for a nice colorful roll.

Dip the rice wrapper into some warm water for just a few seconds. It will become very soft and pliable. (This may take a bit of practice.) I dip one side, then the other then place it on a flat surface.

Spread a couple of tablespoons of noodles near the center of the wrapper.

Follow with a layer of shredded lettuce. Keep it stacked and in a fairly thin line.

Add your bacon. I have one single piece pictured here – but it was much easier to use chopped bacon. So, give the bacon a quick chop before sprinkling on top. Add your tomatoes if using.

Roll it up as if you were rolling a burrito. I started tucking both sides followed by tightly rolling one side to the other.

Cut in half and dinner or lunch is served. This kind of meal was perfect for a hot summer day.

I served our “BL” rolls with our favorite coleslaw, made with red cabbage for some added color. Enjoy your summer!

  1. Wow! This roll has endless possibilities. What a great idea. I am going to add this into our menu rotation.

    • You can certainly change up the veggies and protein – tailor it to all sorts of tastes – then of course add a dipping sauce!
