In an effort to make my post-workout meal more variable I am looking for a list of tasty starches that are also nutritious. This would be something like sweet potatoes vs white rice (which gives starch/carbs but not much in the way of nutrients.) I eat a bunch of sweet potatoes and I like them, but I was hoping people have other ideas and/or recipes to incorporate them.
All I can come up with right now is sweet potatoes, potatoes, and squashes.
If you can find Asian grocers, they usually have a wider range of interesting starches, like purple taro, white taro, different types of yam, sweet potato, squash etc. I occasionally steam or mash my sweet potatoes with coconut oil, or I make a 'sweet soup' with coconut milk and diced cooked sweet potatoes. It's more of a dessert really.
