That giant wailing echoing across the entire Bay Area?
That was me, mourning the loss of potatoes in my life.
Yes, it’s true, I can no longer eat potatoes in any form, except sweet potatoes. Stupid food allergy business…
At least I can have sweet potato fries with a burger but really, this is truly tragic. No mashed potatoes, smashed potatoes, stuffed potatoes, potato leek soup, cumin sour cream potato soup or potato rolls. I am sobbing into my morning coffee.
Always trying to be positive I am focusing my sorrow into finding mashed potato alternatives. Has anyone tried making a soft puree of cauliflower before?
Fortunately there are other starches to use besides potatoes:
- rices (white, brown, wild)
None of them really compare to the versatility of the grand humble potato though. What are your favorite comfort foods that don’t involve a potato?
I think I need to cheer myself up with some chocolate.
