Michelle's FreeFrom Bangers and Mash – with a difference...
Wheat, gluten, corn, soya, egg & nut free; can be dairy free

One of my favourite ‘comfort foods’ are ‘oniony’ potatoes – mashed potatoes with almost as much slowly cooked onion as potato, served with really good gluten-free sausages. But recently, faced with yet another head of ageing broccoli, I wondered if I could vary the theme – and avoid composting some perfectly good, if slightly long in the tooth, broccoli... But if you prefer to avoid elderly broccoli, still be adventurous with your mashes.
Most root vegetables mash well: potatoes, parsnips and sweet potatoes are great, carrots, beetroot, turnips and swedes are fine but slightly waterier so better combined with one of the above.

sausage mash

Mash 1
1 small–medium onion per head
1 tbsp olive oil per head
I medium–large potato per head, scrubbed
goat butter or dairy-free spread, sea salt and pepper

Peel and slice the onions reasonably thinly. In a wide pan heat
the oil, add the onions and cook very gently for 20–35 minutes until they are very soft and slightly caramelised.
Meanwhile, steam the potatoes and when cooked, mash with the butter or spread and season well. Mix in the onions and serve with sausages of your choice.
