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 this Buttery Carrot and Swede.

You could use ButterBuds, but you’d need to add some calories and Points etc for these. You can pick them up on Amazon or in Lakeland. They’re basically dehydrated butter!

Mashing the 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.
