Sweet Potato Mash

For 4 people

Preparation: 10 minutes

Cooking 40 minutes



2 - 3 large potatoes, peeled and cut into pieces

1 large sweet potato, peeled and cut into pieces

1 large parsnip, peeled / cut into pieces

2 cloves of garlic, chopped

Handful of parsley

Large knob of butter

Handful of grated cheddar about 30 gms / 1 oz, more if you like!



1. Put the potatoes, sweet potato and parsnip in a large saucepan, cover with water, add a tsp. salt, bring to the boil, and simmer for 10 15 minutes until just cooked.

2. Drain [reserve the water if you like for gravy / stock].

3. Mash with a potato masher, add the butter, garlic and parsley, and mix well together.

4. Pile onto a large pyrex plate. Sprinkle over the cheddar cheese.

5. Put into the oven, around 170C, for about 20 minutes, until the top is browned.


Lovely with pork / lamb chops, chicken / beef casseroles, etc.


Tip: Try with celeriac or swede as well, instead of the parsnip.
