Here is how to have a super meal with a variety of vegetables that will do you good! For me this is just great, tasty comfort food that will sustain you through cold nights and is inspired by a classic dish that I grew up with: a mash served with onions and bacon fried in lot of fat – a dish called “burning love”!

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
2 leeks
300g scorzonera
200g kale
50g walnuts, chopped
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
3 garlic cloves, fine chopped
1 teaspoon coriander seeds, ground

For the swede and carrot mash

Quantity Ingredient
1 swede
300g carrots
1 small onion
1 1/2 red chillies
75g butter
400ml water
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper

Method

  1. For the mash, peel the swede (rutabaga) and carrots and cut them into big chunks. Chop the onion and chillies. Melt 50g Tbsp of the butter in a large pan, add the swede, carrots, onion and chillies and sauté for 2–3 minutes. Add the water, cover and let it simmer for about 10 minutes or until the vegetables are cooked. Do not drain.
  2. Using a balloon whisk, mix in the remaining butter and season with salt and pepper. Whisk until everything is well mixed but still lumpy.
  3. While the vegetables for the mash are cooking, slice the leeks and rinse well. Peel the scorzonera and cut it into 2-cm chunks. Chop the kale. Add the walnuts to a large, dry frying pan and toast a little until starting to brown. Add the olive oil, garlic and coriander seeds and let them cook for a few minutes, then add the leeks, scorzonera and kale. Season with salt and pepper and let it cook for 10 minutes, then serve with the swede and carrot mash.
