  • 600g medium potatoes
  • 1kg swede
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter


  • STEP 1

    Peel and chop the potatoes and swede into 2-3cm cubes. Put the swede in a large pan and cover with cold, salted water, then bring to the boil over a medium-high heat. Lower the heat slightly and cook for 15 mins, then add the potatoes.

  • STEP 2

    Boil for another 10-15 mins or until the potato is just tender, then drain well in a colander. Allow to steam-dry for a few minutes before transferring back to the pan and mashing with the butter and plenty of seasoning. Don’t make it completely smooth, a bit of texture is works well.
