Swede & carrot mash

Do you like this veg? I think it is little bit underrated. It is tasty, healthy and low in calories. It makes a lovely alternative to mash potatoes. You can also serve it as a side dish. 

Serves 2-3

about 500g swede, peeled and diced 
2-3 medium carrots, peeled and diced
tbsp of butter
freshly ground black pepper
freshly ground nutmeg

Place the swede and carrots in a pan of boiling salted water. Cover and simmer until tender. Drain, add  the butter, generous amount of pepper and some nutmeg and mash with a potato masher. I like it bit chunky, you can make it smooth.  


  1. Uwielbiam brukiew i czesto ja jem na surowo. Polaczenia z marchewka doskonale, ja ja czesto dodaje do mielonego. Pozdrawiam :)

  2. I've never liked it before... only since came to UK I've fallen in love with this veg.. it's so cheap and nourishing... we add it to the mashed potatoes too... :)

  3. Monikucho, lubie wypelniac mielone warzywami, ale z brukwia nie probowalam. :) Mysle, ze to dobry pomysl. :) Dziekuje i pozdrawiam!

    Daria & Jarek, I love it's price too. :) Have to try it mixed with potatoes, good idea! :) Cheers guys!
