Root Vegetable Mash for Babies, Toddlers and Adults

A great recipe for the whole family this and an awesome recipe for the reluctant vegetable eater in your life (baby, toddler or *ahem* adult).

Root Vegetable Mash - Makes enough for 2 adults and a toddler easily


1 large potato, peeled (mine weighed 350g it was a monster!)
120g Butternut Squash (peeled weight)
1 carrot
A large knob of butter or olive oil if you prefer


Cut the potato up into approx 1 inch (2.5cm) or so chunks.  Cut the butternut squash into pieces a bit smaller and cut the carrot into thick slices.

Cover with boiling water and boil, turning down to a simmer for 22 minutes or until everything is softened.

Drain and mash through a potato ricer with some butter or with olive oil.

My 2 year old described it as "yummy" then ate his broccoli and left his beef stew.  He loves beef stew.  You can't please all the people all of the time but it's great to get some vegetables into my sometime reluctant vegetable eater.
