Potatoes are a winter staple, with their warm, starchy goodness to keep you content during the cold nights. But it’s all too easy to get stuck in a potato rut. What many people don’t realise is that there are so many alternative vegetables to use in place of potato to change up your winter dinners!

1. Zucchini

Everyone loves a hearty breakfast on a chilly morning and a big breakfast is nothing without a golden hash brown. Substitute your potatoes with zucchini for a spin on a breakfast classic! With Food and Love have a tasty recipe for your mornings. See the recipe here.

2. Cauliflower

There’s something very comforting about a helping of mash potatoes – although too much can leave you in a carbohydrate coma! Mashed cauliflower is a delicious alternative. You couldn’t tell the difference, plus it’s got more of all the good stuff, like antioxidants and vitamins and less carbs! Dashing Dish have this scrumptious Whipped Cauliflower recipe for you to try tonight for dinner!

3. Parsnips

Some crunchy chips is a guilty pleasure we all indulge in from time to time. Parsnip chips roasted in the oven are a much healthier alternative! Check out Bon Appetit’s tasty treats here.
