How about substituting cauliflower, mashed and prepared like potatoes. . .prepared right, they're not too bad. Make adjustments in the fats and salt to tailor to your own diet needs.
"Mock" Garlic Mashed Potatoes Low Carb substitute for potatoes
1 medium head cauliflower 1 Tbsp. cream cheese, softened 1/4 cup grated Parmesan 1/2 tsp. minced garlic 1/8 tsp. straight chicken base or bouillon (may substitute 1/2 tsp. salt) 1/8 tsp. freshly ground black pepper 1/2 tsp. chopped fresh or dry chives, for garnish 3 Tbsp. unsalted butter
1. Set a stockpot of water to boil over high heat.
2. Clean and cut cauliflower into small pieces. Cook the cauliflower in boiling water for about 6 minutes, or until well done. Drain well; do not let cool and pat cooked cauliflower very dry between several layers of paper towels.
3. In a bowl with an immersion blender, or in a food processor, puree the hot cauliflower with the cream cheese, Parmesan, garlic, chicken base, and pepper, until almost smooth. Garnish with chives, and serve hot with pats of butter. Yield: 4 servings

we like to boil a cubed potato then mash it with a little buttermilk buttermilk is low fat has lots of calcium and adds great flavor to the mashed spuds without using butter
