Made this tonight to go with beef Wellington, we both loved it. Light but tasty to go with the beef. Didn't have parsley so just left out added plenty seasoning. Halved recipe as only two of us, easy to do.

Really nice. Had it with the sausages & sticky onions off here. Halved the recipe for 2 people. Quite sweet. Might be a bit too much if you have a big portion. Will make again!!!

Made this dish as part of my Sunday Roast, had it with Roast Chicken and all the trimmings, it really was delicious, and went with the chicken perfectly, i halfed the quantities as i was only making for myself, my husband, and my 2 children, who are 5 & 2 and we still had a bit left. Will most definately make again, o and i didn't use parsley as i didn't have any, instead i added 50g of cheddar cheese as suggested, and it was perfect. Also made this in the morning then reheated lated, so saved timed with the actual meal.
