  • 2kg mixed root vegetable, cut into small chunks, we used 1 swede, 1 celeriac and 6 carrots
  • 50g butter



    Butter is a dairy product made from separating whole milk or cream into fat and…

  • 3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp wholegrain mustard


  1. Put the veg in a large pan of salted water. Bring to the boil and cook for 15 mins until tender. Drain well, then mash adding the butter, oil and mustard. Season generously. Mix together until the butter has melted, and serve piping hot. This can be made a day ahead and reheated in the pan with a touch more butter, or in the microwave.

I used equal measures of carrots, swede and parsnips and the result was delicious, although be a bit cautious with this much mustard unless everyone likes it because it's quite a strong flavour in the finished dish.

I used carrots, swede and parsnips in approximately equal amounts. Delicious but quite a strong flavour of mustard so check that is ok with your guests and maybe cut back a bit.
