Great simple dish. If you don't like cumin use coriander. Use one garlic clove finely chopped and melt it in the butter before adding to the mash.

I used half a swede instead of sweet potato as had to use it up and worked nicely. Will defiantly try with sweet potato as well though as I'm sure it will taste sweeter. Only had cumin spice instead of seeds but again worked well. Had this on a Sunday roast to squeeze in more vegetables but would also work as a healthy substitute to mash.

do you not need to drain the water before mashing?

Just cooked sweet potato for the first time and served it with salmon and brocolli.
Need to cut potato into normal roast size chunks and carrots in to bite size pieces as take longer to cook. As there was only 2 of us eating we will have the rest tomorrow with rack of lamb but think it would also make a really tasty soup. Cumin seeds add that extra interest dimension.

A great alternative to mash. We had this with steak pies to try and make the meal a bit heathier and it was lovely! The cumin seeds really make this dish. So easy too.
