This isn’t the prettiest dish, but it IS totally delish.

I do also serve ham and other meat dishes at Christmas, but to be honest, this simple veggie dish is my fave,

For years I have been meaning to perfect a creamy mushroom sauce to go with it… no success so far.

    Wondering where the Kurdistan cook will get the Vegemite! Sounds delicious. I wonder if you could weigh the sweet potato next time to give an indication of what “medium” is to you? As you know, they come in all sizes!

      Good idea… I will do… the original recipe says parsnip but I Australianised it.

    I’ve always wondered what vegetarians eat at Christmas because the whole meal seems to revolve around ham, pork and turkey. What’s left? This is a lovely sounding recipe xx

      Thanks Charlie, it’s a tradition now for us and I’ll be making it even though our veggie person won’t be at the table.
