Sadly, one of the ingredients we miss most on the Low Carb Keto diet is potatoes. But as they say, necessity is the mother of invention… some very creative cooks have come up with great ideas to replace them!
Turnips are a great low carb alternative for starchy potatoes. They have a very similar texture and taste like something between a carrot and a potato. Also, they are packed with nutrients, providing anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antifungal, antiparasitic, and antibacterial benefits.
Other healthy low carb potato substitutes are radishes, jicama and cauliflower.
