Simple root veg mash

Donal Skehan

This is a healthy mash which goes well with any meat.

Serves four to six.


950g/2lb 2oz sweet potatoes, turnips and parsnips, peeled and chopped into 2.5cm/1in pieces

50g/2oz butter

1 tsp honey

1 tbsp wholegrain mustard

Sea salt and ground black pepper


Put the root vegetables in a cooking pot and fill it up with cold water. Place over a high heat and bring to the boil.

Cook for 15-20 minutes or until the vegetable pieces are tender when pierced with a fork.

Drain the veg completely in a colander, then return it to the pot.

Add the butter, honey and wholegrain mustard, and mash with a potato masher until completely smooth.

Season with sea salt and ground black pepper and serve.
