Recipe: Rustic Root Mash with Radicchio Roses

On October 18, 2012

I finally figured out a way to bring my favorite fall foods and my favorite fall trend together on one plate!

This dish literally took 10 minutes and it tastes as great as it looks.  The carrots and sweet potato are grounding and comforting (energetically, root veggies are always grounding).  The radicchio’s bitterness is great for detoxing the body. The parsley helps digestion and the seeds add a little boost of protein and omega-3s.

Try it for yourself and let me know what you think…


Rustic Root Mash with Radicchio Roses 

Servings: 2
Time: 10 minutes
What you need: a medium pot with a lid, steamer basket, medium bowl, fork or potato masher, vegetable peeler

  • 1 large sweet potato, peeled and diced
  • 2 carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 1 radicchio
  • 1 teaspoon organic goat butter (or extra virgin olive oil)
  • Sea salt & black pepper, to taste
  • Sprinkle of hemp seeds
  • Sprinkle of black sesame seeds
  • 1 tablespoon parsley, chopped 


Wash, peel and chop the sweet potatoes and carrots.  Fill a pot with 1″ of water and fit in your steamer basket.  Bring the water to a boil, load in the veggies and put a lid on the pot.  Steam for about 7 minutes or until the veggies are fork tender.

Once done, put the sweet potatoes and carrots in a medium bowl with the butter/oil, sea salt and pepper and mash to desired consistency–I like to keep it a little rustic (aka choppy, not smooth)

Arrange your root mash on a plate and sprinkle with your seeds.  Cut slices of your radicchio and hold them together so they keep their flower formation and stick them into the mash.

Using kitchen shears cut the parsley over of the plate so it falls all over and voila! My favorite fall trend on a plate: FLORALS!

NOTE: This Rustic Root Mash recipe was adapted from a recipe in Healty Cooking Camp’s 5-week cooking program.  If you think this sounds good you’re going to be in awe of everything in there.  Check out all the options here!
