Healthy recipes - Old school sausage ‘n’ mash

Here the mash is made with carrots and swede, as well as potato, to help increase your intake of vegetables.


• four (or 300g) carrots, chopped

• 300g swede or turnip, cut into chunks

• 700g potatoes, cut into chunks

• eight reduced-fat sausages

• 1 tsp vegetable oil

• 1 large red onion, thinly sliced

• 100ml reduced-salt vegetable or chicken stock

• 200ml cold water

• one tbsp fresh parsley, chopped

• one tsp dried mixed herbs

• two tbsp cornflour blended with one tbsp of cold water

• one pinch ground black pepper


1. Cook the carrots, swede or turnip and potatoes in a large saucepan of gently boiling water for about 20 minutes, until tender.

2. Swap sweet potato or butternut squash for the swede, to make a change.

3. Meanwhile, preheat the grill. Arrange the sausages on the grill rack and start to cook them when the vegetables have been cooking for 10 minutes. Grill them for 10-12 minutes, turning often.

4. Make the recipe with vegetarian sausages if you prefer.

5. At the same time, start to make the red onion gravy. Heat the vegetable oil oil in a large non-stick frying pan and add the onion, cooking until soft and lightly browned – about 3-4 minutes.

6. Pour in the stock and water, add the herbs, then simmer for 4-5 minutes. Add the blended cornflour and stir until thickened. Keep hot over a low heat.

7. Drain and mash the vegetables, seasoning with black pepper. Serve two sausages per person with the red onion gravy.
