Savoury Smashed Root Vegetables

Just a quick question...

Would you choose a ketogenic diet over a lovely bowl of root vegetable mash? 🍠 

I know which one I'd be choosing, and really, who wouldn't want to enjoy tasty prebiotic fibre for good gut health.

*Runs away and takes cover from keto enthusiasts 🏃

Oh and one last thing, mash isn’t just all about spuds. Served either as a light meal on its own or as a side, this tri-coloured bowl of primitive, hulk-inspiring nourishment will have you at hello.

Anyway, later ’taters. 

Enjoy the recipe.

Savoury Smashed Root Vegetables

Serves 4

  • 1 small turnip, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 1 medium parsnip, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 1 medium sweet potato, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 1 large carrot, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 2 tablespoons cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil
  • 80 ml (21/2 fl oz/1/3 cup) additive-free coconut milk
  • 2 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast flakes
  • Sprinkling of Golden Gut Blend or Love Your Gut powder
  • pinch of Celtic sea salt
  • freshly ground black pepper

Place the turnip and parsnip in a large saucepan. Cover with water and bring to the boil over medium heat. Boil for 10 minutes, then add the remaining vegetables and boil for a further 20–30 minutes, or until the vegetables are soft.

In a separate, small saucepan, simmer the olive oil, coconut milk and garlic over low heat for 5 minutes.

Drain the vegetables and place in a food processor with the coconut milk mixture and nutritional yeast flakes and pulse briefly, so the vegetables are still chunky. Season to taste with salt and pepper and gut powder if using.

    Oooh this savoury smashed root recipe sounds devine, shame it’s too hot to put the oven on today but it’s definitely going on my meals list. Thanks Lee 🎄

    Dear Lee,
    This will be a keeper recipe once I complete your 4 week Heal Your Gut protocol (my second time round given a 3 year hiatus). Sweet and savoury all in one.

    I would encourage others to give this recipe a go. You will not be disappointed. I used ghee and served the smashed root vegetables with snipped chives and a drizzle of EVO oil. Each of the vegetables: orange sweet potato, parsnip & turnip weighed around 115g, while the carrot weighed approx. 75g.

    The recipe on page 227 of Heal Your Gut serves 4 as a side dish or 2 as a light meal.

    Thanks a bunch Lee!
