I think swede (rutabaga) has been ignored for too long, but I feel it’s making a bit of a comeback. It certainly makes a great warming winter soup, which goes brilliantly with the sliced caramelized chestnuts.


  • 1 swede (rutabaga), about 400g/14oz total weight, peeled and diced
  • 2


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/gas 6. Put the swede (rutabaga) in a roasting tray, drizzle over the olive oil and season with a little salt and pepper.
