These low fodmap green beans are so delicious and super easy to make. Green beans are the best for making low fodmap roasted vegetables, especially when seasoned with olive oil, salt, and black pepper, then topped with parmesan cheese.
Bake the green beans for 20 minutes, and you will have the most mouth-watering parmesan-baked green beans. Seriously these roasted green beans made with simple ingredients are so good, at least in my books.
I was inspired to make healthy low fodmap roasted vegetables for people with SIBO and irritable bowel syndrome, as it can be challenging to find both delicious recipes that are healthy and low fodmap. But these parmesan-roasted green beans are an exception!
Thankfully green beans and parmesan cheese are both low fodmap and taste amazing when roasted with a touch of olive oil.
I have been enjoying these baked green beans as a weekly low fodmap vegetable side dish to accompany dinner. You can serve these oven-roasted green beans with basmati rice and salmon with lemon juice for a complete low fodmap dinner.
I also serve these low fodmap green beans with homemade veggie burgers as a side vegetable dish when I feel like something other than a salad. I include salad or vegetables of some sort at every dinner meal.
I cannot imagine how I would feel if I didn’t eat my greens. These green beans are the perfect side dish to substitute for salad or a healthy addition to any meal. Making this recipe weekly is a great way to get whole green beans into your diet!
I use fresh green beans for this low fodmap vegetable side dish as my local supermarket often has an entire bag of fresh green beans for 1.99. I can’t pass up a deal like that when I see it, especially now that I know how to make the best parmesan roasted green beans.
If you do not have fresh green beans available, you could also use frozen green beans. You can also use garlic-infused oil instead of pure olive oil if you like a little garlic flavor that is still low fodmap.
Green beans are one of my favorite low fodmap foods that are also fantastic for weight loss and maintaining healthy blood sugar levels as they are among the best foods to lower blood sugar levels.
