Kumara Mash, Salmon & Greens Recipe

This ultra-creamy mash is a credit to yellow kumara, and just the right amount of butter

Of the kumara varieties, yellow makes a lovely creamy mash. Roasting it adds a delightful flavour and brings out the sweetness.

A knob of butter is the perfect finishing touch. Don’t forget to remove any pin bones from the salmon. It’s delicious with skin on or off, either way is fine.
