Not that long ago it happened with an advertorial(!!) - this time it's with a side dish.
I love swedes (the vegetable, yes those of you from Sweden I love you too) and when they are in season I use them a lot - I put them in my mash potato - the girls love it and particularly when you have spicy or sweet sauces they mashed swede is just the perfect accompaniment and can really carry a spice very well.
I had a few to use up and seeing this recipe in this month's issue of BBC Good Food (Australia) (if you don't subscribe I seriously suggest you do, just buy one issue you'll understand why) it was instantly on my 'to make list. It's really easy and not that much extra effort than a mash - but really, I would just eat it on it's own.
Kids will like it because it's got a bit of sweetness to it - just don't them them it's good for them OK?
