Lets get to the root of it!


Hello all and welcome to a very dreary Monday.

A few people have asked me for some recipes with swede in, so I thought I’d post my swede and beetroot stir-fry recipe. Its packed with antioxidants, is delicious, rustic and comforting. Just what you need on a rainy day in the UK. I hope you enjoy it.



1 large swede

2 bulbs of beetroot (I use the organic, cooked beetroot in packets)

1 large red or yellow bell pepper

1 tbsp pine nuts

1 tsp chilli (I use hot chilli powder)

1 tsp paprika

1 tbsp coconut oil

Salt & pepper


Take the skin off the swede and chop into cubes. Place in a large pan of water and boil for about 35/40 minutes. You don’t want the swede to be too soft. Once ready, strain and make sure all the moisture has gone. You don’t want it too watery.

In a wok, put the coconut oil and spices and fry them off for about 2 minutes, then add the pepper, beetroot, pine-nuts and the swede. Make sure the chilli and spices cover the vegetables. You may want to add more chilli, depending on how hot you want it. I also sometimes add cinnamon to add a bit of sweetness to the dish. Fry for about 20 mins and then serve.

Its delicious served with natural yoghurt and chopped fresh coriander.
