SWEET POTATO & CARROT MASH

This recipe is GLUTEN FREE, DAIRY FREE and VEGAN. I always try and use organic foods, where possible, but the recipe will work just as well with non-organic produce.

This is a great way to add an easy twist to a whole host of classic dishes where you would normally serve potatoes. And, unlike our beloved mash, this version requires no added fat so it’s a little easier on the waistline.

If you don’t have a blender simply mash the sweet potatoes, carrots and cannellini beans with a masher, or ricer if you have one. Feel free to add more or less garlic and coriander to suit your tastes.
