This dish is really moreish and feels indulgent for a weeknight dinner. In fact, it’s super nutritious and simple to make. Leeks and onions are prebiotic foods, fantastic for feeding our gut bacteria. Spiking the mash topping with carrots also boosts your Vitamin A.
Top tip: I love using coconut yoghurt for a sauce as an alternative to cream.

2 leeks

200ml vegetable stock
60ml coconut yoghurt

Half a swede or potato (250mg)

5. Add the spinach and coconut yoghurt, and stir through for 1 minute until the spinach has wilted.
