  • 350 g carrots
  • 350 g swede
  • 25 g butter (or olive oil)
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Peel and dice your carrot and swede into evenly sized pieces. 
  • Add the diced vegetables into a pan of water so the water just covers the vegetables. Add a big pinch of salt and bring to a boil. Leave to cook for 10 minutes or until the vegetables are soft. 
  • Once soft, drain the water. Add the butter/oil and mash it with a masher. Add salt and pepper to taste. 
  • Enjoy with roast chicken, lentil loaf or meatballs!


  1. If you don't own a masher, you can mash it in a food processor. If you make it in a food processor, pulse it carefully so it gets mashed and not turn into a puré.
