Make sweet potato mash the supper star
Boil the sweet potato in stock for added flavour or add a tablespoon of turmeric for extra flavour. Earthy sweet potato mash is the perfect accompaniment for lamb: serve it with this leg of lamb or barbeque-spiced lamb chops.
Add a pop of colour with butternut mash
Gone are the days of sad, grey meals. Serve that perfect pangrilled steak with butternut mash: blend butternut with garlic, Parmesan and olive oil for a side that’s easy on the eyes. For a more decadent, creamy butternut mash, try adding a generous dollop of crème fraîche.
The carb-clever mash
By now you’ve almost certainly heard of cauliflower mash. Make your own by boiling cauliflower until cooked, then using a handblender, blend briefly with cream and salt. Pass the blended mixture through a sieve to remove any lumps. (Read the full recipe here.) Serve as part of a beef and cauli-mash shepherds pie.
