    Alternatives to potato and rice?

    I'm looking for ideas on how to change things up during my evening meal. I seem to make a fair amount of SW Wedges/Chips and rice dishes as a side with some of my meals.

    I've thought about Sweet Potato fritters, Cous Cous and such.

    Does anyone have any other ideas please?

    A baked potato, mashed potato, roast potatoes, boiled potatoes, hassleback potatos. You can do so much more than just chips!

    Try experimenting with other root vegetables, i.e. sweet potato, carrots, parnsip, etc. all make yummy alternatives to chips. Or carrot and swede mash is also delicious and makes a nice change, particularly on a roast dinner.

    Pasta, noodles, quinoa, couscous, orzo...the possibilities are endless!

    Thanks all, might start using sweet potato and pasta more I guess.

    Must admit I had Sticky Chicken Tuesday night, and BBQ Pulled pork last night, and both were absolutely fantastic
