Winter Chocolate Mash

Mashed carrot and parsnips are as good as chocolate according to Real photographer Kieran Scott's grandad - hence the name!


  • 3 large carrots, peeled
  • 3 large parsnips, peeled
  • 50-75 grams butter or 3-4 tablespoons of milk


  1. Cut the vegetables into even-sized chunky pieces, place in a largish saucepan and cover with cold water. Simmer gently for 15-20 minutes or until tender. Drain well.
  2. Add the butter or milk and mash roughly. Season well with salt and pepper and serve hot.
