Do you miss fries? I’ll answer that: Who doesn’t? I know it’s hard to substitute that crisp, starchy texture, but a lot of veggies can come close in savory, salty flavor. Celeriac (a.k.a. celery root) is one of my favorite potato substitutes. If you can’t find it at your usual grocery store, you may have to look at specialty stores like Whole Foods or a local farmer’s market–and you’re more likely to find it there when it’s in season during fall/winter.
