With my husband and I both having to eat a low FODMAP diet and having many of the same issues, we eat a lot of white potatoes and rice dishes. The biggest challenge was finding ways of flavoring them without using garlic and onion that we still found tasty and satisfying. You can only eat so many baked potatoes, but if you’re a spoonie zebra like myself, you probably don’t have a lot of extra time and energy to spend on side dishes.

Oven roasted potatoes are a good way to make something different that doesn’t take a whole lot of time. You simply need to wash your potatoes, cut them up, toss them with some herbs and throw them on a cookie sheet. The question is, how to make them delicious and fit the meal you’re making. So here’s three different options I’ve concocted thus far. Just be sure when choosing your cheese that it’s low FODMAP.

Traditional Oven Roasted Potatoes

  • 3-4 Red potatoes
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • A few dashes Dill and parsley
  • A few dashes Salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Scrub potatoes and cut into 1-1 ½ inch pieces. Toss with olive oil and spices and place on a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper in a single layer. Cook 20-25 minutes, stirring once. Serve hot.

Roasted Cajun Style Potatoes w/ Cheddar

  • 3-4 Red potatoes
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • A few dashes each: paprika, cayenne, thyme, oregano, basil, salt and pepper
  • 1-2 ounces cheddar

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Scrub potatoes and cut into 1-1 ½ inch pieces. Toss with olive oil and spices and place on a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper in a single layer. Cook 20-25 minutes, stirring once. 5 minutes prior to coming out of the oven, add cheddar. Serve Hot.

Italian Style Oven Roasted Potatoes
