trying to eat less starch ?

 You can switch to brown rice which has more nutritional value, and tastes much better in my opinion. takes longer to cook though, 50 mins + 10 for resting. I would suggest brown basmati or brown jasmine made with chicken stock. In addtion wild rice would   be another option.

  If you're looking for something completely different, though, try quinoa, the protein king of the vegetable world. you can make like rice. Barley is another excellent nutritional grain you can use as a side (try to find hulled barley, as pearled barley has very little nutritional value).

    The following charts contain less starchy vegetables:


artichokes
asparagus
bean sprouts
beets
Brussels sprouts
cabbage
cauliflower
celery
cucumbers
eggplant
green beans
green or red peppers
iceberg (head) lettuce
mushrooms
okra
onions
parsnips
tomatoes
tomato juice
vegetable juice
turnips
wax beans
zucchini

Dark green vegetables
bok choy
collard greens
dark green leafy lettuce
kale
mesclun
mustard greens
romaine lettuce
spinach
turnip greens
watercress
beets

Orange vegetables
acorn squash
butternut squash
carrots
hubbard squash
pumpkin
sweet potatoes

Avoid: corn
green peas
lima beans (green)
potatoes
