Garlic & Chilli Potatoes

You know by now that I love potatoes and Garlic & Chilli Potatoes are really easy to throw together and taste just as good dipped in guacamole as they do with an evening meal or in a salad.

A fun fact too about potatoes. Did you know that when potatoes are cooked and cooled their resistant starch increases? And this is a good thing because resistant starch is great for our gut, by essentially feeding our gut microbiome this helps to increase the diversity of gut bacteria, which is beneficial to our overall gut health. A bonus I say.

So, what’s good about them? Well aside from just tasting great below, find some key nutrient facts below.
