This Broccoli Mash recipe is a nod to my British friends. It’s one of those comfort thing foods that men seem to love and I have to think that the original came from left over potato and veg from Sunday Lunch. It’s yummy, definitely comfort food and will go with just about anything. Start from scratch or use your left over veg to create this great ‘renewed’ side dish.
