Keep It FODMAP Friendly
One of my favourite things about this recipe is that most of the ingredients are FODMAP friendly. Check out the notes below for specific information on keeping these low FODMAP roasted vegetables FODMAP friendly.
First, according to Monash University, potatoes, carrots, and bell peppers don't contain any FODMAPs. This means you can eat as many as you want without adding to your FODMAP load.
Just so you know, even though bell peppers don't have any FODMAPs, they do contain capsaicin. This is the compound that gives peppers their spicy flavour. Aside from tingling your taste buds, it can also cause heartburn. So, if you suffer from an issue like GERD, dyspepsia, or general acid reflux, you can use fewer peppers, or cut them out, altogether.
Next up is zucchini. The Monash app says zucchini is safe in servings of 1/2 a cup (66 g). Monash recommends avoiding servings over 100 g or more, as they're high in fructans. This recipe uses one zucchini (about 1.5 cups), which works out to 49.5 g per serving. This is within the recommended serving size.
Our final ingredient is feta cheese. According to Monash University, feta cheese is safe in servings of 1/2 a cup. This recipe uses 1/4 cup, which works out to 1 tbsp per serving. This is also within the recommended range.
Pick Your Headliner
While these low FODMAP roasted vegetables are delicious on their own, they also make a great side dish. I like to pair my roasted veggies with meats like pork tenderloin, steak, or my seasoned chicken breasts.
Fun fact: you can also make this recipe on the barbecue. This is handy if you're trying to keep your kitchen cool in the summer, or if you're cooking your main dish on the BBQ already. Since the temperature will be a little higher, make sure you check your veggies often after 15-20 minutes so they don't get too crispy.
