Apple Mashed Potatoes

Horseradish Mashed Potatoes for Roast Beef
Try adding a teaspoon or two of horseradish sauce to the mash just before serving with beef.

Caramelised Onion Mashed Potatoes

Potato Yaki Udon Recipe

"I’m so excited to share this recipe with you, it’s such a winner! It’s so quick to throw together and so satisfying. I love using potatoes instead of noodles, it’s a really fun twist on the dish and a nice new way to use a simple ingredient. The flavours in this are so great too – the mix of sesame, ginger, chilli and coriander with spring onions, peppers, kale and mushrooms is just so delicious. Can’t wait to hear what you all think!"
