    can anyone help. a lady was telling me about a recipe that she saw on tv whereby they were using something else instead of a potato and it was lower in fat. it was about the size of a cricket ball and the skin was very lumpy. any suggestions????

    I've used it before - difficult to peel but tastes like mash potato with a celery taste!

    i dont know. i shall ask her. she said that it was a show where someone went to a house as the whole family ate nothing but spuds, so she was showing her alternatives and she used the veg and made it kind of like a roast potato dish.
    hmm this looks interesting, i might give it a go anyway.
    thanks x

    oh i only like celery in stews and soups, so might like this.

    Jerusalem Artichoke - they're like nobbly sick looking new potatoes. I think i've seen them use them instead of potatoes on some healthy eating programmes before.

    Personally i find butternut squash is a good alternative, and Celeriac too!

    Celeriac is lovely - you can braise it with a little stock, garlic and thyme.

    Or I make it into coleslaw - grate it and mix it with grated carrot, spring onion, a couple of spoonfuls of 0% Greek yogurt, some extra-low fat mayo, some wholegrain mustard and a spoon of white wine vinegar. Lovely low-fat and really tasty,

    You can also mash cooked cauliflower with a little milk and season and have instead of mashed potato.

    Get cooking!!!
