This swede mash takes just 25 minutes, is utterly indulgent and a great alternative (or addition!) to mashed potato.



  • 700g swede – peeled and chopped into small chunks
  • 3 tbsp vegan butter
  • Salt and Pepper


  1. Fill a large pan with water and bring to the boil.
  2. Once the water’s boiling, carefully pop the chopped and peeled swede in.
  3. Boil for 20 minutes. Pierce with a fork to check if it's ready. The fork should enter the swede easily. If not, give it 5 minutes longer.
  4. Drain the swede using a colander, and then put it back into the pan.
  5. Add the vegan butter, salt and pepper, then mash with either a masher or a potato ricer until smooth. It might take up to 10 minutes!
  6. Make sure there aren't any visible lumps, and then serve as part of a roast dinner or with roasted veggies on top.


Mashed swede won’t get as smooth as mashed potato, but make sure that there aren’t any visible lumps.

You could add a splash of oat milk to help create a smoother texture
