When we had our restaurant we used to sell a lot of roast dinners. I’m talking at least 200 on a Sunday. We know how to make a good roast diner, and it wouldn’t be complete without Carrot and Swede.

Syn Free Buttery Carrot and Swede

The Carrot & Swede that we used to make was laden with butter. Butter and Slimming World don’t exactly mix. So that’s where Buttery Frylight comes in! A couple of sprays, and you get that amazing butter taste for just 1kcal a spray.

You could use ButterBuds, but you’d need to add some syns for these. You can pick them up on Amazon or in Lakeland. They’re basically dehydrated butter, and are just half a syn a sachet.

Mashing the Syn Free Buttery Carrot and Swede

To mash, use a masher! Just make sure you have a masher that will stand up to a good mash. We’re on our third masher this year, and are very happy with our Joseph Joseph masher.

It’s stood the test of time, and hasn’t let us down once. It also folds away to go back in the drawer, to help keep our kitchen just that bit tidier.

Whenever we need to replace oil in cooking we use Frylight. Perfect for everyday frying and cooking, it delivers exactly one calorie per spray, which makes it Syn free! The Butter flavour is ideal for this Syn Free Buttery Carrot and Swede recipe.
