If dropping potatoes from a diet is a tough choice to make, consider a tasty substitute made with mashed cauliflower. It’s an easy recipe. Cook cauliflower with water and chopped onions, covered, until it is tender. After it is cooked, but while it is still hot, purée it with chicken or vegetable bouillon. Then add fresh-ground pepper. This makes a great substitute for carbohydrate heavy potatoes.
It is hard to find someone who does not love the taste of french fries. The siren call of french fries has derailed many diets. If you must consume French fries, bake them instead of frying. Cut your potatoes about a 1/2″ thick, put them into a bowl with a tbsp. of oil, then lightly add a pinch of rosemary (optional), salt, and pepper; bake one layer for 30 minutes at 400 degrees. Use a spatula to turn it and then continue baking for ten more minutes. They are absolutely delicious with ketchup, much lower in fat calories, and you will never miss the deep frying. These “French Bakes” are courtesy Laurel’s Kitchen cookbook.
