Number of Servings: 8


    1 medium swede (about 600g), peeled and cut into chunks
    500g parsnips , peeled and cut into chunks
    15g butter , plus a little extra
    2 tbsp golden syrup
    150g fresh breadcrumbs
    2 eggs , lightly beaten
    1 tbsp olive oil
    2 thyme sprigs, leaves stripped


Bring a large pan of water to the boil, and add the swede chunks. Boil for 3 mins, then add the parsnips and boil the lot for 12 mins more or until tender. Drain well, then tip both together into a pan or bowl and mash well with the butter. Stir in the golden syrup, three-quarters of the breadcrumbs and the eggs with plenty of seasoning. Transfer to a baking dish and smooth the surface. Toss the remaining breadcrumbs with the oil, seasoning and thyme leaves, then scatter over the mash. Dot with a few knobs of butter. The dish can now be covered and chilled for up to 48 hrs, or frozen for up to a month - defrost completely before baking.
To serve, heat oven to 200C/180C fan/ gas 6 and bake for 40 mins or until piping hot and the crumbs are crisp.
