I’m the first to admit that making a crazy, elaborate dinner every night is totally impractical. Between you and me, I’m a huge fan of a basic meat and potatoes dish. But sometimes, I get stuck in a potato rut. That’s why I’m always on the lookout for fun new recipes like these low FODMAP mini paprika potatoes.

I can’t take full credit for this find. My husband found the recipe while at a friend’s cottage. We Franken-FODMAPed them the day he got back and we’ve been in love with them ever since.
These potatoes may be tiny, but they pack a savory paprika kick. Aside from the flavour, I like how easily this recipe can be scaled up or down. I hope this fun side dish shakes up your dinners, too.

Keep It FODMAP Friendly
If you like your potatoes naked, you don’t need to worry about overloading on FODMAPs. According to Monash University, potatoes don’t have any FODMAPs. This means you can eat them freely.
That being said, some people are sensitive to portion size. Having too much food in your digestive tract at one time can put stress on your bowel. This may cause symptoms no matter what you eat.
If you’re not into potato nudity, you might want to add some cheddar or sour cream to your potatoes.
Hard cheeses like cheddar or mozzarella are fermented during the cheese-making process. During this time, some of their lactose is broken down by bacteria. This means you can eat small portions of hard cheeses during the elimination phase.
According to the Monash app, cheddar is safe in servings of 40 g per sitting. That works out to about two slices of cheese.
Sour cream, on the other hand, is high in lactose. Larger stores sometimes carry lactose-free sour cream. This is fine for the elimination phase. If you can’t find a lactose-free product, skip it until you finish your lactose challenge.
Pick Your Headliner
