Sweet Potato and Carrot Mash recipe

This mash makes a lovely side dish in place of normal potato mash. Try it next time you make a roast dinner.


  • 2 sweet potatoes
  • 2 large carrots
  • 100g butter
  • Salt and pepper

Method of Preparation:

  1. Peel both the potatoes and the carrots and finely chop them.

  2. Place the veg into a saucepan of boiling water and cook until soft, about 15 minutes. Once soft, drain the pan of all water.

  3. Mash the carrot and potato with the butter and a healthy pinch of seasoning. Either mash until smooth and creamy or leave it textured if you want it chunkier.

You could use butternut squash in place of the sweet potato if you canít find it. You could also use a tbsp. of crème fraiche or double cream to make the mash creamier. This recipe yields four portions.
