We all love sweet potatoes, their wonderful flavour and creamy texture pair well with almost anything. Swede is another matter. However, cooking transforms swede and combining it with sweet potatoes in a creamy mash truly makes swede shine.
Why eat it you might ask? Well, swede is incredibly nutritious and very low in calories. It is however high in antioxidants, vitamins A and C and a number of minerals.
- 500 g/ 1 large Swede
- 800/ 2 medium Sweet Potatoes
- 4-5 sprigs of fresh thyme leaves only
- 1 tbsp flat leaf parsley chopped
- 3 tbsp butter
- salt to taste
- Peel both sweet potatoes and swede and cube them.
- Cut swede in smaller chunks than sweet potatoes as it takes longer to cook.
- Boil both vegetables in the same pot together with 1 tsp of fresh thyme leaves for 15 minutes until fork tender.
- Mash with a potato masher until smooth, add butter, chopped parsley and salt to taste and stir to combine.
