A delicious healthy meal from our Co-Founder and Nutrition Director, Louise Keats.

Move over potato mash. Switching potato for four different vegetables means you get so much more vegetable variety than you would with potato mash, as well as a lovely hit of greens.

Served with tasty chicken skewers, this makes a perfectly balanced mid-week meal.
