When I want a substitute for a potato fry and still want something hearty and potato like, I usually turn to turnips, celeriac, rutabaga, or butternut squash. Normally I choose whatever is on sale and then flavor them up to match the dish I am serving. Depending on where I am with calories for the day sometimes I roast them in olive oil but when I want to cut back on calories, I use egg whites. They help everything crisp up but with less fat and calories. It's up to you. If you decide to use egg whites, it cuts out 50 calories.
