I love potatoes...problem is like most people I like butter too. How can I make good potatoes without all the butter or frying them up??
My first thought was, it can't be done! But then, I remembered the handy ricer my husband had me purchase.
You squish boiled potatoes through the ricer and you get little fluffy rice like potato.
It's fluffy, nice texture and good to eat WITHOUT butter!
I was thinking about buying a ricer anyhow but had been waiting...so this will just make me HAVE to get one...lmao ..Thanks
I find acorn squash tastes a lot like potatoes (or better!) but without the excess starchy carbs and more fiber!
I cube it up and toss it in some coconut oil then bake it in the oven for about 40 mins at 375 degrees.
The best part is that you can make it either savory OR sweet-- if you want savory use olive oil and add some garlic, salt, pepper or whatever other seasonings you like. If you want sweet then use coconut oil and toss with cinnamon, nutmeg, and stevia.
Works great with other types of squash too-- pumpkin, butternut, and kombucha!
Fat is GOOD FOR YOU!! You should never feel bad about eating fat, provided it is from HEALTHY sources and not in conjunction with EXCESS carbs. With squash you can have your fat and "starch"... and eat it too!
FF/LF sour cream, Greek yogurt, or cottage cheese and chives! I never use butter because sour cream is enough by itself!
Thanks all for more ideas...I dont really care for greek yogurt...tried it a few times and it tastes very bitter to me so I tend to steer clear of it though if anyone has any ideas to make it better let me know. I have tried the flavored ones and ick...lol...I do like sour cream ..bacon bits are a downfall because I LOVE bacon ...could eat a whole pack just myself so I try to stay away from it as much as possible..what do you do with the cottage cheese, mash it up in the potato or top it with it ..sounds weird...I have never used coconut oil or anything like that may have to look and see if our store carries it...I like the idea about trying the acorn squash but still glad for the ideas for the potatoes. Guess I am just going to have to figure I may end up substituting 1 fat for another in this case.
