DS hates lentils and mashed potatoes. What else can I do with a stew?

Came on to say polenta or sadza.

Hunks of fresh bread. Salty butter. Yum.

Baked sweet potato, potato dauphinois, dumplings, potato croquettes, potato gnocchi.

Roast potatoes. Crusty bread.

Roasted baby potatoes.
Have you got dumplings in it? If so I wouldn’t bother with potatoes and just serve with brocolli and green beans.
Or made a scone top like a cobbler.
Duchess potatoes are good and a bit retro!

Roast or boiled potatoes, couscous, sweet potato, chips, rice at a push, flat noodles and pretend its stroganoff, crusty bread, lots of veg.

Some good suggestions, think I'll do beef stew tomorrow.

Suet Dumplings or gnocchi depending on the style of stew

OneStepMoreFun Mon 29-Oct-18 16:29:15

brown rice, white rice, dumplings, dauphinoise potatoes

CovenofMiLsfromHades Mon 29-Oct-18 16:29:31

Dumplings for me too.
Its not traditional but would go nicely with pasta.

TeddyIsaHe Mon 29-Oct-18 16:30:12

Soft, cheesy polenta. Yum!

Andtheresaw Mon 29-Oct-18 16:30:21

serve in a giant Yorkshire pudding with lots of veg. No spud required. Yum!

TheQueef Mon 29-Oct-18 16:32:18

Plate size Yorkshire pudding with a bit of sage and onion stuffing sprinkled in the batter.
Soft top dumplings.
Green beans, cabbage or spring greens.

BluthsFrozenBananas Mon 29-Oct-18 16:35:19

Crusty bread and butter or jacket potatoes if they’re not too close to mash for your DS.

Ta1kinpeece Mon 29-Oct-18 16:36:16

or dumplings

Bloomcounty Mon 29-Oct-18 19:23:57

Doughballs, which I assume are what everyone else is calling dumplings. Or rice. I love beef stew with rice, esp if its a winey stew. Yum!

FekkoThePenguin Mon 29-Oct-18 19:25:26

Couscous. I rather like Couscous.

DH does a beef burgundy that we serve over egg noodles or rice. If there's already a starch in the stew (like potatoes) I wouldn't add another.
