With my husband and I both having to eat a low FODMAP diet and myself having to eat low histamine, 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. Here’s three different options I’ve concocted thus far.

FODMAP Dieter’s: Be sure when choosing your cheese that it’s low FODMAP (contains no more than 1g carbs per serving).

Histamine Dieters: Traditional Oven Roasted Potatoes should be fine without modification. The cheese should be omitted in the Italian potatoes if you are react to mycotoxins (mold). The Cajun potatoes are NOT appropriate for people with mast cell issues or histamine intolerance because of the cheese and use of peppers. However if you happen to be able to tolerate these ingredients, go for it. We’re all different.
