OK, OK, you know all about zoodles. You've maybe even riced a cauliflower a couple times. Since you're such a pro, it's time you try transforming other vegetbales into your favorite carbs. Yes, zucchini does a lot in this department, but check out these 14 ways to use mashed beets, shredded broccoli, sliced parsnips, and more to get your daily fix of pizza, fries, and all the lick-your-fingers-good kind of carby foods in-between.

Squash Your Burger Bun

Ditch Frozen Pizza Crust

Don't even get us started on our deep feelings for pizza. We'd eat it every night if it wouldn't start to feel redundant… but now we can. Thank the food blogger gods for playing around with mushy vegetables in order to make the most satisfying pizza crusts ever to be found in the produce aisle.

Swap the Wonder Bread

Oh, bread. We love you so! And while we always have an emergency loaf of Ezekiel in the freezer, we're way into breaking down our favorite veg into a loaf these days. Though possibly a little weird on PB&J, nearly every other sandwich topping would be at home nestled between two slices of carrot or broccoli flatbread.

Change Up Standard Grains

We know you're about to say, “Does my gluten-free pasta really have more carbs than these veggie versions?” Answer: Maybe not, but we guarantee way better flavor and texture… and isn't that why we eat pasta or a giant grain bowl anyway?
