Chips - The Alternative

Or -- French Fries.
Let's face it, these can go on almost any plate. Heck, they're even combined with curries these days.

However, there is perhaps always an alternative in these snap-munching situations.

What sorta stuff do you opt for instead of chips, when chips are perhaps a prescribed side for it.

E.G.
Say, for a steak - instead of chips you might have normal spuds.
What other stuff do you go for. Perhaps something not even potato-based.

And discuss chips randomly, because they're great.

Onion rings. I rarely get plain fries anywhere unless they're spicy because onion rings are just way too tasty.

I always go with chips or mash. I love potato. I am not a fan of rice or onion rings. Sometimes I might choose salad or seasonal vegetables. But usually my main would come with one of those.

To begin with instead of steak I would have a vegetarian alternative.

Instead of chips though... hmm. Brown rice maybe. Brown rice is a huge staple in my diet and I have it with almost every meal because I love it so much. Not only does it taste great but it's also really good for you.

I rarely eat chips, I often have boiled potatoes with most of my meals simply because chips would just seem wrong with it, that being said on Friday I had a take away (burger, fries and onion rings) and it just seems wrong to have a burger with anything other than chips, same with steaks, it seems wrong. Though wish sausages it seems wrong to have anything other than mashed potatoes and onion gravy - dammit I am making myself hungry now...

I like chips but they are pretty easy to replace with something just as good. Anything potatoey will do. I would always choose gruyere potato gratin with steak over chips, for example.

Rice/salad, too.

What she said --- anything potatoey. I just assume that word really exists. Mashed or bake! Although really I would still have my fries if I can.
