This week, the brief was swede: these hefty organic roots are a staple in the February veg boxes. Great as mash, either solo or in a root veg ensemble. Top a shepherd’s or cottage pie with a mixture of mashed swede and potato (and celeriac, if you have some).
For a deeply aromatic approach to swede we recommend this roasted root veg recipe by Yotam Ottolenghi from his book Plenty More. Once you’ve got some fresh curry leaves and lime leaves, it’s dead simple. We’re a bit early for spring onions, so use a few chunks of regular onions if you need to – but pop them into the dish a little sooner than the last 10 mins of roasting.
