Obviously the mashed cauliflower featured a couple days ago is a great substitution. Another is beet or zucchini chips instead of potato chips (I plan to feature a recipe for these in the near future.) However the one I'm most excited about is this tater tot substitution as I am an absolute sucker for those fried chunks of goodness.
The recipe I used called for kabocha squash, which is hard to find, and required quite a bit of prep work. So i substituted the prepackaged, precubed pieces of butternut squash available at Trader Joes and saved myself a ton of time and trouble. This might be one of the easiest recipes you'll find on this blog.
1 package cut butternut squash
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Toss the squash with oil, sprinkle with sea and spread on a roasting pan. Roast the squash for 15 minutes, remove from oven to toss, then roast for another 10-15 minutes.
