  • 1 large carrot, peeled, thinly sliced
  • 1 large (about 150g) potato, peeled, chopped
  • 200g peeled pumpkin or sweet potato, chopped
  • 150g broccoli, trimmed, cut into florets
  • 1 egg


  1. Place carrot, potato and pumpkin in a steamer over a saucepan of simmering water. Cover and steam for 10 minutes or until almost tender. Add broccoli and steam for 4 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
  2. Alternatively, place vegetables into a microwave safe dish and add 4 tablespoons of water. Cover with a lid and cook on 100% power for 5 minutes. Stand for 3 minutes before opening lid.
  3. Drain. Return to saucepan or dish and mash leaving some texture.
  4. Meanwhile, place egg in a small saucepan of water and bring to the boil over a high heat. Reduce heat to medium and simmer for 8 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold running water. Peel egg.
  5. Serve mashed vegetables (about 1/3 cup), with a ½ chopped hard-boiled egg.


Tip: Freeze left over portions of mash (without egg) in individual airtight containers for up to 2 months. Thaw, warm and serve alongside half a chopped egg before serving.
