Servings: 2 people

Preparation time: 15 minutes

Cooking Time: 45 minutes


Fry’s Soy & Quinoa Country Roast, sliced 2cm thick

1 small butternut, peeled and diced

300g carrots, peeled and cut into small pieces (or use baby carrots)

Olive oil (optional)

2 cloves garlic, crushed

6 fresh sage leaves

Zest from 1 lemon

Salt and pepper, to taste


Defrost the Country Roast fully before cooking and remove it from cardboard sleeve and plastic.

Slice the Country Roast into 2cm slices. Brush a little oil on each side of the slices (optional) and arrange carefully in the basket of the Airfryer, side by side, with a small gap in between each slice. Do not overcrowd the Airfryer so rather do fewer pieces at a time to ensure even cooking.

Air fry for about 10 minutes at 190°C until the slices have browned and crisped.

If you don't have an airfryer, preheat the oven at 180°C. Remove the Roast from cardboard sleeve and plastic. Baste with a bit of oil and place in the foil on a baking tray. Roast for 30 minutes. For an extra crisp finish, roast for a few more minutes.   

To prepare the mash, fill a pot with boiling water and either steam or boil the carrots and butternut until very tender, for about 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, add the olive oil to a small skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and sauté until golden brown. Add the sage leaves. Fry the sage until just crisp, about 30 seconds. Remove the sage and place on paper towels to absorb excess oil.

Transfer the butternut and carrots into a food processor.  Purée together until smooth.

Add 2 tbsp of the sage oil, and pulse a few times to combine. Add the lemon zest, salt and pepper to taste and stir until combined.

Crumble sage leaves and sprinkle on top of mash and serve with the Country Roast slices.
