Does anyone else eat swede and carrot mash with their roast dinners?! I did growing up, and it was my all time favourite side dish. (I’ve even eaten it cold in a sandwich before… I know, that’s a bit weird).
Maybe the reason I loved it so much was the salty, butteryness of it. Yeah, that is the reason. But a roast is not a roast unless there is swede and carrot mash on the plate, so I have had no choice but to ‘clean up’ this recipe, because I’ve just got to have it.
I watched an episode of Come Dine With Me the other week (my guilty pleasure) and one of the contestants made a root vegetable mash with houmous in it. I thought that was pretty clever and pretty healthy, so I thought id give it a go with my favourite roast dinner side – It worked! Its earthy but light and does the job a treat.
A perfect way to use up your Clean Eating Houmous, give this a go the next time you have a roast!
