Tripe soup

This recipe is based on a traditional Romanian recipe, modified to be AIP compliant and low FODMAP.

Some people may never go over the idea of eating tripe but those that can, they’ll discover a spectacular soup, nutritious, filling and yet easy going. Eaten with some pickled chili peppers, it is said to be the best thing for getting through the morning hangover.

My children love it too; they eat 2 portions every time I cook this for them.

Oh, make sure you buy some quality tripe. It should be white, with no yellow or dark stains on it!
