When I was a single mum of two teenagers, I loved this time of year as it meant root vegetables were cheap again. I'd buy a pack of mixed root vegetable for a £1 add some potatoes and make loads of root smash.
This meant I could get lots of goodness down them both and fill them up without spending a fortune. Any leftovers would be made into soup by adding some stock cubes mixed with hot water (as per instructed on the packet). This is still a great family favourite and both the mash and soup can be frozen and used at a later date.
Peel and chop all the vegetables and put them in a saucepan
Boil in water until they are nice and soft. Here I added some sweet potatoes but you can add any type of potato you prefer.
Mash or blend together.
This side can be served with a variety of mains and is filling as well as full of goodness.
Alternatively add some stock and make a great soup.
