Roasted Rosemary Red Potatoes (Low-FODMAP)

Potatoes are one of my favorite foods and I refuse to give them up. I know that they are starchy and have a lot of carbs, but I love them. If you leave the skin on, they provide fiber. Potatoes also have a lot of potassium. I don't eat a lot of potatoes, mind you. We eat them maybe two to three times a month. That's pretty good, I think!

Sometimes there's a main dish that roasted potatoes would go so well with. The Lemony Chicken Saltimbocca I previously blogged about was such a dish. Cooking Light pictured it with spaghetti, but I was in the mood for roasted potatoes. Actually, I'm always in the mood for roasted potatoes, but they just appealed to me even more this time.

After years of trying different recipes, I've finally settled on this one that is a conglomeration of my favorite elements of several recipes. It works every time. I sometimes change up the herbs and seasonings, but the rest usually stays the same. Here is a rosemary version that I thought I would share because it would work perfectly for a low-FODMAP diet. I can tolerate potatoes very well and I've heard that other people with IBS and fructmal can too. Just because you have food intolerances doesn't mean that you can't eat delicious food!
