Three Root Mash

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Pearlesyarn

From Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall of River Cottage Fame. We love this and usually have potatoes, carrots and swede as our root combo. The website says; "This goes well with roast joints and stews in winter, or can be a meal on its own with a couple of rashers of bacon and a fried egg on top" The original may be found here

I'm sorry to say we found this recipe a bit heavy and bland on taste. I used potatoes, carrots and parsnips. I added some fresh parsley to make it more edible. Made for PAC Spring 2010.
