For the mash

  • 700g swede, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 850g potatoes, cut into chunks


  • STEP 1

    Heat the oil in a large non-stick pan over a medium heat and fry the mushrooms, bay and rosemary for about 5 mins. Tip in the onions and garlic, and cook for a few minutes more until softened.

  • STEP 2

    Add the butternut squash, stock, chickpeas, smoked paprika and tomato purée. Cover and simmer for 40 minutes until the liquid has reduced to a thick gravy.

  • STEP 3

    About 25 mins before the end of cooking time, make the mash. Bring a large pan of water to the boil and cook the swede for 5 mins, then add the potatoes and boil for 15-20 mins until tender. Drain and mash with plenty of black pepper.

  • STEP 4

    Serve half the stew and mash now, then chill the rest to reheat and eat another day. Will keep chilled for up to three days. Reheat the stew in a pan until piping hot. The mash can be reheated in the microwave. Serve with broccoli and peas, if you like.
