Larger than the turnip and with a rough skin that is partly tan and partly purple, the swede's unpolished appearance belies its fine texture and distinctive, sweet tasting flesh. When roast or mashed, swede makes a simple and tasty side dish. It can also be added to a stew or mashed with potato.
Swede is a root vegetable and is packed with health benefiting nutrients as well as having cancer fighting properties. Swede is an excellent immune booster as it is bursting with Vitamin C and betacarotene (provitamin A).
