Side Serves 4 25 min
Check how hot your fresh chillies are by nibbling on the narrow end (the least hot part). Soak them in boiling water for 20-30 minutes to soften before using. If you're not a fan of chillies, this swede and carrot combination is great with just lots of freshly milled salt and pepper.


  • 1kg mixture of swede and carrots, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 50g butter
  • 3 tbsp cream
  • 1 fresh red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley or coriander, chopped
  • grated zest of ½ lemon
  • salt and pepper
