  • You might alter it slightly, substituting cauliflower, mashed, and add a beaten egg white to bind before steaming.

    Not sure why this question is closed. Come on guys, there are regularly questions asking for low carb substitutes, why close this one? But to the question you can finely grate them and wash off most of the starch and see how it goes. Maybe add some binder e.g. egg or thickener e.g. xanthan to keep it together. Good luck.

I referenced the recipe which has only the two ingredients, grated potatoes and carrots, and seasoning. For the potato, substitute cauliflower, cooked until very soft, mashed. Fold in the carrots and a beaten egg white to bind the mixture before steaming, rather than the boiling option.
