Wondering what the consensus on adding butter to mashed carrot and swede (free and speed) is, would it still be speed even though it now contains syns - obviously no longer free?
I had mine without and it was bland mush compared to the delicious buttery delight the rest of the family had envy

Try adding pepper

I added plenty of salt and pepper and some chilli flakes but it just didn't do it for me. Never mind!

I always add butter and a metric fuckton of pepper. I don't always count the syns for the butter; that's what syns are there for. It's all in the pepper, anyway. You need to put too much in, then put a little more. It's not actually too much once you come to eat it.

Bastard DH doesn't like swede so I don't get this very often, but I used to put a layer of this in between the meat and potato in my cottage pie. That way you get the extra speed (and flavour) but still get a proper potato topping.
