Really quick and easy, tasty too. I'm planning on experimenting with different flavours, maybe whole-grain mustard with sausages. Also wondering if it could be used as an alternative to a mash potato topping on a pie.

This is wonderful, a great alternative to potato, and very easy to make in a short space of time from basic store cupboard ingredients.

Although it doesn't look particularly appetising, it's delicious! I made it with a home made pesto to make it truly from scratch. Yum!
